30-Minute Green Enchilada Beef over Rice

  It is such a busy time of the year right now and it helps to have some fast and easy recipes on hand.   This dish is not only fast and easy, but it is absolutely delicious too.  It has just the right amount of spice to leave your lips a little tingly.

I usually have all of the ingredients on hand, so it is perfect for a weeknight or last minute dinner.  I like to add a big dollop of sour cream on top to add some creaminess to the dish and it helps cut down on the spiciness a bit.

 Spend less time on dinner and more time enjoying the holiday season.
