Make enchilada sauce
  • 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 concentrate 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 tomatoes 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.

If you've opted to get beef, cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to cook the pork.
