Beef Enchiladas

My husband loves these enchiladas. I don't care for red meat so I rarely cook with it, but these enchiladas have always been a crowd pleaser. Also, I love to freeze these little guys for future dinners.

Beef Enchiladas

1/2 lb ground beef, chicken, or turkey
1/2 chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 packet taco seasoning
1 (16oz) can refried beans
2 (10oz) cans red enchilada sauce
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1 package flour tortillas
2 cups shressed Mexican Style cheese

  1. Saute meat, onion, and garlic until lightly browned. Add taco seasoning and finish browning meat.
  2. Add refried beans, and a little enchilada sauce to moisten. 
  3. Put a little more sauce in the bottom of the baking dish you will be using. Grab a tortilla and fill the middle with the meat mixture and then roll. Place seam side down in the dish. Continue until you've used all the filling. 
  4. Cover enchiladas with the rest of the sauce and sprinkle cheese to the top of the dish.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and sides are turning brown. 
Serve with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sour cream or even tortilla chips.

  1. I'll have to try this one! I like adding mexican rice to mine too (and TONS of sour cream on top!)
