Easy Beef Enchiladas

easy beef enchiladas

Tonight’s meal was so easy but so good. I used flour tortillas because that is what we had available but a more authentic flavor would be gained by using corn tortillas. If you aren’t a fan of bell pepper (I used green), you can easily exclude them and this will still be delicious! All three of my kids ate this up with no complaints!

Easy Beef Enchiladas
Recipe type: beef
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • ¼ chopped bell pepper
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • ½ pack taco seasoning
  • cheese of your liking
  • water, oil
  • tortillas (corn or flour)
  • 1 can enchilada sauce
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet, add small amount of oil (I use EVOO). Add ground beef.
  3. Once beef starts to brown, add chopped onion, minced garlic, and chopped bell pepper.
  4. Drain off grease. Veggies will be softened. Add taco seasoning and small amount of water. Let this come to boil and then reduce.
  5. When preparing the enchiladas, pour small amount of enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 9×13 pan (sprayed with nonstick cooking spray).
  6. Add a spoonful of your meat mixture in the middle of the tortilla. Add a small amount of cheese and a line of enchilada sauce on top of the cheese.
  7. Roll in both sides of the tortilla and roll up. Place folded edge down into the enchilada sauce.
  8. Continue until your pan is full. (I got 7)
  9. Pour remaining enchilada sauce on top of rolled tortillas.
  10. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  11. After 30 minutes, remove foil and add cheese to top of enchiladas. Cook for 10 more minutes or until cheese bubbles.

Can you believe I’ve never had beef enchiladas? I always make chicken enchiladas with a white cream sauce. I’ll have to try your recipe sometime. Thanks for sharing Stefany!

Let me know what you think Beth. I like the crunch from the pepper.
