Been Busy!

For those of you that have been eagerly anticipating "Menu Plan Monday", I'm sorry to crush your hopes and dreams into itty bitty pieces, but it ain't happenin' today! Busy, busy describes my day in a nutshell and we are out the door for the evening in 1 hour. I thought I would post a recipe and picture from a few weeks ago, which we had again tonight. For a quick and easy recipe it sure tastes gooood!

Better-Than-Ever-Beef Enchiladas (Kraft Food & Family)
Prep Time:20 min
Total Time:43 min
Makes:4 servings, two enchiladas each

1/2 lb. extra lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1/2 cup chopped red peppers
2 cups TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Salsa, divided
1 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
2 Tbsp. KRAFT Light Zesty Italian Reduced Fat Dressing
8 corn tortillas (6 inch)
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Cook meat and peppers in large nonstick skillet on medium heat until meat is no longer pink, stirring frequently. Add 1 cup of the salsa; simmer 3 to 4 min. or until peppers are tender. Remove from heat; stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese.
SPREAD 1/4 cup of the salsa onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish. Brush dressing lightly over both sides of tortillas. Stack 4 of the tortillas on large sheet of waxed paper; wrap tortillas in waxed paper. Microwave on HIGH 20 to 30 sec. or just until warmed. Immediately spoon 1/3 cup meat mixture down center of each warm tortilla; roll up. Place, seam-side down, in dish. Repeat with remaining 4 tortillas and meat mixture. Spoon remaining 3/4 cup salsa evenly over filled tortillas; cover with foil.
BAKE 20 min. or until heated through. Uncover; top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake an additional 2 to 3 min. or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with cilantro.

Great minds think alike! We had Mexican tonight too! How did the Carmel Chip bars turn out? I probably won't post my menu until tomorrow. Didn't really have time or the desire to with how our day turned out. :)
