  • 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.
