Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

Sounds so simple right and they are, but they are so delicious! The day I wanted to make these I went to my cabinet to look for red enchilada sauce and much to my dismay I was out so I made my own using this recipe and I seriously will never buy store bought red enchilada sauce again!
