Easy Beef Enchiladas
Enchiladas are a fave in our family! We do not discriminate when it comes to our enchiladas and load them up with a variety of fillings. I mean, who doesn’t love tortillas filled with deliciousness and covered with cheese.
I love making these enchiladas for a quick and easy dinner. I love to make my own sauce for our enchiladas but for these quick beef enchiladas I used my favorite Old El Paso Red Enchilada Sauce!
How to Make Beef Enchiladas
These enchiladas only have 6 ingredients all of which are easy to find and pick up! I cannot tell you how many times I have run into the grocery to grab these ingredients and have dinner made within the hour.
- Ground beef
- Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce, Red
- Lawry’s Garlic Salt (another fave)
- 1 tsp olive oil or butter
- Mexican Shredded Cheese
I made my enchiladas with flour tortillas but you can definitely use corn as well. I love the homemade tortillas from H-E-B. They are ridiculously delicious and always a hit! No matter what kid of tortilla you choose, flour or corn, these easy beef enchiladas will be a hit!
I use large tortillas so this recipe makes about 10 enchiladas per dish. Just fill your tortillas with your beef mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Place your enchiladas in your dish, cover with sauce and cheese and bake. Told you they were easy!
I love to serve these enchiladas with Mexican rice and black beans. We of course always have to have chips and salsa on the side. Hello, Mexican food! This easy dinner recipe is perfect for busy nights and busy families. Also, don’t forget the guacamole!
How to Roll Enchiladas?
Fill your tortilla with a large spoon full of whatever filling you choose. Fold over each side of the tortilla tightly and place seam side down in the baking dish.
Can you make these ahead of time?
Yes! I usually make these in the morning and put them in the fridge. I pull them out while the oven pre-heats then pop them in.
Can you freeze beef and cheese enchiladas?
Of course! Yes, you can actually freeze any kind of enchiladas. Just be sure to keep your enchiladas air tight by covering them with plastic wrap and foil. Eat within 1 1/2-2 months.
Can you use ground turkey instead of ground beef?
We prefer ground beef for the authentic taste but you can definitely use ground turkey if that is what you prefer.
Our family loves these enchiladas! I hope your clan enjoys them as much as we do!
