Cheesy Beef and Bean Enchilada Dip

If you are craving enchiladas, but you don’t want all the work of making them, then this is for you. Or maybe you are needing a fast and easy appetizer, again you have come to the right place!

This enchilada dip is beefy, and cheesy. Made with a tex mex chili gravy that sets it over the top for me. I just can’t have beef enchiladas without chili gravy. It’s my favorite.
