Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas

Enchiladas are an easy delicious meal. There are endless options for the fillings.Use chicken, pork, beef, vegetarian, the combinations are endless.

Today, I have made Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas with Ground Beef,  Onions, Green Chiles and Olives. 

My kids ate them up very quickly. Yes these are always a big hit. I always make a double batch just for that reason, they go very quickly.

Serve with a side of brown rice, refried beans and a Mango Margarita, ARRRIBBBA!

I’m making this tomorrow. It looks really good and easy. Do you or should you put some sauce in the bottom of the pan before putting tortillas in? Also, is a glass baking dish better than metal better for this?

Hi Darcie,

Yes, add some enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan, about a half a cup. Glass or metal baking dishes work great.

Hi there can you confirm the amount of meat mixture for each tortilla. It’s say 1 tblsp….it doesn’t seem enough.

Hi Marie,

Dependent upon the size of the tortilla, no more than 1/4 cup and at least one heaping tablespoon of meat mixture. You don't want your tortilla over-stuffed and breaking open when serving or overflowing in the baking pan.

Hope that helps,
