Make Campbell's Easy Beef Enchiladas by cooking 1 pound ground beef in a large skillet until brown and crumbly. Drain the fat from the pan, and stir in 1 package taco seasoning mix, 1 can refried beans, 1 can cheddar cheese soup and 1/2 cup chopped onion, adding 1 cup cooked white rice, if desired. Warm 12 flour tortillas, and fill each with a portion of the beef mixture. Roll up the tortillas, and place them seam side down in a 3-quart baking dish. Pour 1-1/2 cups enchilada sauce on top, sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
