Make enchilada sauce

Before starting, preheat the broiler to high.Wash and dry all produce. Heat a medium pot over medium heat.When the pot is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then flour. Stir to combine.Whisk in 1 cup (2 cups) water, 1 1/2 tbsp (3 tbsp) Mexican Seasoning and broth concentrates until smooth, 1 min. Bring to a boil.Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, whisking often, until enchilada sauce thickens slightly, 4-6 min. Remove from heat.

Prep and make salsa

Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/4-inch slices. Peel, then cut half the onion (whole onion for 4 ppl) into 1/4-inch slices. Cut tomato into 1/4-inch pieces. Zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lime into wedges. Add tomatoes, lime zest, 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) lime juice, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.

Cook filling

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then peppers and onions. Cook, stirring often, until veggies soften, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer veggies to a plate. Add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to the pan, then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Season with remaining Mexican Seasoning, salt and pepper. Return veggies to the pan. Stir in half the enchilada sauce, then remove from heat.

Assemble enchiladas

Lightly oil an 8x8-inch baking dish (9x13-inch for 4 ppl) with 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil.Place tortillas on a clean work surface.Divide beef filling between tortillas.Roll up to close enchiladas and place, seam-side down, in the prepared baking dish.

Broil enchiladas

Drizzle remaining enchilada sauce over top, then sprinkle with cheese.Broil in the middle of the oven, until cheese melts and edges of enchiladas are slightly crispy, 3-6 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on enchiladas so they don't burn!)

Finish and serve

Divide enchiladas between plates. Dollop salsa and sour cream over top.Squeeze a lime wedge over top, if desired.
