With only 4 ingredients (plus optional sour cream) it is fool proof. Cheater Beef Enchiladas for the win!
This enchilada recipe is one of my cheater meals. I don’t cook like this every night, but when I am limited on time, this one is so easy to make and my family loves it. I’ve tried different kinds of enchilada sauces and haven’t noticed a difference. You can also add a 2nd can if you like it more “saucy.” We tend to like things more on the cheesy side.

- 1 lb ground beef cooked
- 10 oz red enchilada sauce
- 2 c cheese shredded
- 12 corn tortillas flour can be used instead
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
Mix cooked ground beef with ¾ c. enchilada sauce and 1 c. of cheese.
Spoon approx ¼ c. filling into each tortilla, roll up and place seam side down into baking dish.
Pour remaining sauce over rolled tortillas.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake for 25-30 mins or until cheese is melted.
* Can cover with foil for more moist enchiladas. Remain in final 5 minutes of baking.
Favorite trick with corn tortillas - wrap a damp paper towel (run quickly under water) with 5 corn tortillas and microwave for 1 minute at a time. They will be hot! Be careful. The tortillas will then bend easily and will not crack like they do without heating them.
Our family likes beef rice for a side. And sometimes I add beans too.
