Homemade Beef and Cheese Enchiladas- Recipe from Lubys Cafeteria made simple

My aunt used to cook for lubys and she would make these at home all the time. My mom started making them since Lubys posted the recipe online but we do it slightly different. We dont add alot of ingredients that the recipe asks for yet it still comes out DELICOUS. This recipe is a hit at our home. The orignial recipe takes longer to cook and calls for so much more ingredients so this is the simplified version and tastes the same.

  2. 1 lb ground beef
  3. 2 can diced tomato
  4. 1 1/2 tbsp paprika plus 1 1/2 tsp
