Looking for a quick, easy and tasty meal with a Tex-Mex kick? This Oh So Easy Enchilada Recipe is just what you're looking for!

These are awesome for freezer cooking also if you’re interested. Just cook as directed, flash freeze and cover. When you’re ready to cook them, bake in a 350 oven. You don’t even really need to thaw them! I like to use these foil baking pans with lids for freezer cooking meals like this one since I can do everything including freeze them in one dish.

 

You Will Need:

  •  1 pound of ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 14 oz. can of Chili with beans
  • 1 can diced tomato
  • 1 can of red enchilada sauce
  • Large Burrito Size Tortillas
  • 3 cups of grated cheddar

 

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a heavy bottom skillet, brown the ground beef and drain well. I actually give mine a quick rinse, but some people think it ruins the flavor. I don’t think that it ruins anything except grease…lol.

Once your beef is browned and drained, stir in the chili, tomatoes and 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce and simmer until hot.

Spoon a small amount of the meat mixture onto each tortilla and top with a bit of cheese. Roll each tortilla and make sure to tuck the ends to help keep the filling inside. Place the tortilla seam-side down in the baking dish.

Once you’ve got all of the tortillas rolled up, pour the remaining red enchilada sauce over the top. You can use extra if you’d like or you can just use what you have left. It is a personal preference on how much sauce you like. Top with the remaining cheese.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until bubbly. Top with peppers, onions, black olives or whatever else may strike your fancy!
