Ground Beef Enchiladas

I have TWO post for you today! I've been busy with my blog for the last couple of weeks, sprucing it up, organizing my recipe index and such, and haven't been able to post any new recipes. Recently I made a delicious ground beef version of my chicken enchiladas and just had to share it with you though.

Anyone who reads my blog on a regular basis knows how much my family and I love Mexican food. So much so that we usually have a Mexican inspired meal at least once a week. This recipe is super yummy, and uses economical ground beef. It was a great change of pace from the usual chicken I use and my family really enjoyed it.

Home Sweet Homestead: Ground Beef Enchiladas

I think what really puts this dish over the top is the homemade enchilada sauce I use. It taste loads better then the stuff you buy at the store, plus it doesn't have all of those unpronounceable preservatives and stuff in it. Our family doesn't care for really spicy foods, our stomachs would go on strike if we tried to! This sauce is just right, and perfect for kids as well.

Ground Beef Enchiladas


1 pound ground beef
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 recipe for Enchilada Sauce, divided
8 flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups shredded Colby/jack or Mexican blend shredded cheese


Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9 inch baking dish and set aside.
In a medium skillet, brown beef and seasoned salt over medium heat for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no pink remains.
Drain, then stir in 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce.
Spread 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce evenly in the baking dish.
Spoon 1/4 cup of the beef mixture down the center of each tortilla, followed by 2 tablespoon of cheese.
Wrap tortillas tightly around filling and place seam side down in baking dish.
Top with remaining enchilada sauce, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Serve as is, or top with your choice of chopped tomatoes, cilantro, green onions, avocado, and sour cream.

  5. I made this + the homemade sauce (took all of 2 minutes to whip up). This was EXCELLENT!! This is now a main staple of ours with a little lettuce & tomato salad and refried beans with a little cheese - YUM!! I used more meat than called for and sprinkled the extra on top with the sauce, but that was really the only thing I did different. This was super fast, easy and I had most of the ingredients on hand anyways so it was also super cheap - my kind of recipe.
