Easy Beef Enchilada Recipe
These are some of the best beef enchiladas that I have created! I have tested recipes here and there and I have found that this recipe suites us the best! They are packed full of ground beef, or I like to call meaty goodness, and topped with cheese that melts to perfection! I had a craving for them so I thought why not run to the store get all the things I needed and make them up!
I am so glad I did, because they turned out perfectly! Now my husband is a huge meat lover, he kind of thinks a meal without meat isn’t really a meal! So I packed them full of ground beef, so they are pretty large in size. NOW you can make them smaller to fit your taste buds! It is all your preference. We do use the low carb style tortillas, as my husband is diabetic! We try to watch the carbs on things but still allow for a tasty meal that satisfies his cravings. Recipe does work with regular tortillas as well.
We topped these with some cilantro and then I grabbed the sour cream, because everything taste better with sour cream in my eyes! It truly was a great meal that filled us up. You can pair this with some mexican style rice or refried beans, guacamole, or whatever else your heart desires! Top them however you like, it is a blank canvas and just fit it to your flavor palate!
- 1 lb ground beef (feel free to use more ground beef if serving a lot of people!)
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 can of green chilis (4 oz)
- Tortillas (we use low carb ones)
- Red Enchilada sauce
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper
- Cilantro (optional)
- First off preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a skillet you want to start browning your hamburger, salt and pepper it with a little dash.
- When the meat is almost cooked through with a little pink left, add in your onions and green chilis, and finish cooking.
- Take your enchilada sauce and pour into a bowl.
- Then dip a tortilla into the enchilada sauce coating it, and put into a greased pan. Add in your meat mixture, and roll up the tortilla. Then repeat till all your meat mixture is gone.
- Once all your enchiladas are rolled up, add your shredded cheese on top, and put in the oven to bake till it is nice and golden brown. That should take 30-40 minutes.
- When done feel free to chop some cilantro and toss on top, adds a fun look and new flavor to it, or skip this step!
You can double and triple this recipe. We only have 3 people in our home so I don't make huge amounts, but feel free to double the recipe if needed!
