Easy Cheesy Ground Beef Enchiladas

These aren’t enchiladas dressed up with fancy ingredients or creative flavor combinations. No, these are basic enchiladas with an unashamed amount of cheese and a minimal list of ingredients. That is not to say they aren’t good; they are, and their warmth and simplicity are absolutely comfortable. They’re the enchiladas you turn to when you want something simple, cheesy, and sure to please the entire family.

Warming your tortillas will make life much easier while making enchiladas. They roll better and shatter less. Some recipes call for a brief fry of each tortilla or even a dunk in sauce, but you don’t have to go that far here. Wrap the tortillas in a moist towel and heat in the microwave until warm.

The filling is simple: ground beef, onions, taco seasoning cooked in a skillet, and a small amount of shredded cheese. Spread some down the center of each tortilla, fold it up, and arrange it on a baking pan.Enchilada sauce is quite simple to make, but if you’re short on time, your favorite can or jar will suffice. To cover all of them, you’ll need around two cups of sauce. Make sure to cover every bit of tortilla so that everything softens in the oven.

(For enchiladas, crispy edges are unnecessary.)With a bit extra cheese on top, it’s time to let the oven take over. The enchiladas emerge surrounded by bubbly fiery red sauce and a thick layer of ooey-gooey cheddar. Every bite is meaty, cheesy, and very fantastic. Sometimes you don’t have to be fancy or inventive to put a meal on the table that everyone will enjoy. Sometimes it’s just easy and cheesy.

Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground meat and onions until no longer pink. Drain the excess fat and season the steak with taco seasoning. Add 1/4 cup water and cook until it has totally reduced. Remove from the heat and put aside.Pour 1/2 cup enchilada sauce onto the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish. Roll each tortilla firmly after placing some ground beef and cheddar in the center in a straight line.

Place the enchiladas seam-side down in the baking dish. Pour enchilada sauce over the tortillas, ensuring sure they are all covered. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream and cilantro, and enjoy!
