Easy Beef Enchiladas

  • Yield: 10 1x
  • Category: Main Course
  • Cuisine: Mexican




  • Some tasty beef (, cooked and shredded)
  • 4 cups grated cheese {I used cheddar & mozzarella cause that’s what I had on hand (, but Colby or Monterey jack both work great too!})
  • 68 flour tortillas
  • 2 {14 oz} cans red enchilada sauce



  1. Combine shredded beef, 3 cups cheese and 1 can of enchilada sauce in a large bowl.
  2. Pour half the remaining can of enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9×13 pan and spread evenly.
  3. Microwave the tortillas for a few seconds to make them easier to work with, then fill the tortillas with beef mixture {we like them thick, so I over stuff!}…
  4. Roll them up {I like to tuck the ends in too, unlike a traditional enchilada}, and place seam down in pan. Repeat until you are out of tortillas or beef mixture.
  5. Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.
