This super easy dinner recipe is pieced together with seasoned ground beef, shredded cheese and enchilada sauce. So simple, yet seriously so delicious!

To start making these ground beef enchiladas, start by adding about 1/3 cup of seasoned ground beef and cheese to the center of a small tortilla, then roll up and place in your 9x13 inch casserole dish.

I used my Homemade Taco Seasoning to make my seasoned ground beef mixture along with a little diced onion. It’s perfect in these enchiladas, burritos or tacos!

Tips for Making Ground Beef Enchiladas:

  • Enchilada Sauce? NEVER put the enchilada sauce on the INSIDE of the tortillas. You’ll be sauce overloaded.
  • Flour or Corn tortillas? My absolute favorite is to use a corn and flour blend tortilla, but sometimes they are hard to find. Flour tortillas will make for a more softer enchilada, while corn can hold it’s own in the sauce. It’s really up to your taste preference… for these I went with flour.
  • Can you freeze enchiladas? YES! You can definitely prepare these enchiladas and then freeze before baking. Perfect for making ahead of time!

Once you've filled your casserole dish with the easy ground beef enchiladas, spread more enchilada sauce over the top and add some cheese!

I had some extra ground beef after I filled all the enchiladas so I sprinkled it over the top of the rolled enchiladas, then topped with my homemade enchilada sauce.

Top the ground beef enchiladas with generous amounts of shredded cheddar cheese and then bake until bubbly and heated through!

The greatest thing about these enchiladas is that the cook time isn’t too long! Start to finish, you can get this on the table in less than 1 hour! And that’s not bad for homemade beef enchiladas!

Once your beef enchiladas are done, top with all your favorite taco toppings and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 2 1/2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 soft taco size tortillas (flour or corn)
  • 2 cups enchilada sauce
  • 16 oz. marbled cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Sour Cream
  • Pico de Gallo
  • Diced Avocado
  • Diced Green Onions

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Brown the ground beef and onion in a skillet over medium heat until beef is crumbled and no longer pink. Drain any fat and return skillet to oven. Sprinkle in the taco seasoning and water. Stir until combined and the water absorbs into the ground beef. Remove from heat.
  3. Spread about 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9x13" casserole dish to evenly coat the bottom.
  4. Add 1/3 cup of the ground beef mixture in a straight line to the center of each tortilla. Add about 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese and roll up tightly. Lay seam side down in the casserole dish. Repeat until the casserole dish is filled with the rolled enchiladas. If you have any remaining ground beef, sprinkle it over the top of the rolled enchiladas.
  5. Spread the rest of the enchilada sauce over the top of the tortillas, making sure to coat each tortilla. Sprinkle the remaining cheese all over the top and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the center is bubbly.
  6. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Notes

FREEZING INSTRUCTIONS: Prepare these enchiladas as directed, but before baking cover tightly with foil and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to bake leave foil on the enchiladas and bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. Center should be bubbly. Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes.

    This was excellent. I think the sauce really really elevates it. The only change I made was to toast the tortillas over a flame on my stove before wrapping.

    These were great. Always looking for ground beef dishes. Look forward to making and using homemade sauce next time around.

    My very first time making enchiladas- I tweaked these by using ground turkey and corn tortillas along with your homemade sauce and seasoning (healthier version) and my Hispanic boyfriend, who doesn’t handle processed foods well at all, loved them! I’ll definitely be making these again! Thank you!!
