AN EASY GROUND BEEF ENCHILADA RECIPE
I’ve always been a huge fan of enchiladas. One of my first recipes I shared on The Country Cook were for Creamy White Chicken Enchiladas and they continue to be a fan favorite to this day!

Our whole family loves these and requests them often! I promise that you can’t go wrong with this Ground Beef Enchilada recipe and it will be a hit with your friends and/or family!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I use burrito sized for this recipe so they make large enchiladas. You can certainly use taco sized if you’d like to make them smaller and have more of them.
While these are your basic ground beef version, they also work great with chicken like my Salsa chicken recipe or try them with my Mexican shredded beef recipe!
This really is a flavor preference. My personal preference is Herdez (mild) brand salsa. I’ve been to known to purchase others when they are on sale but that is my favorite. You could also use a can of Rotel but I think salsa adds more depth of flavor.
We use simple cheddar cheese for this recipe, but you can also use a Mexican blend, Monterey Jack or even Colby Jack as well.
Enchiladas can be stored (covered) in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 5 days. These can also be frozen. Wrap then pan in plastic wrap and then a layer of foil and they should keep in the freezer for up to 3 months. To defrost, remove to your refrigerator overnight and you can reheat in the oven until heated through or in the microwave.

Thank you for the delicious recipe Brandie!
Thanks so much Jill! So happy you liked it!
Just letting you know, enchiladas are made with red corn tortillas. That’s the way they are made here in Texas. I have never heard of them being made with flour tortillas.
These aren’t those kinds of enchiladas. I lived in Texas for many years and these obviously aren’t authentic enchiladas because they’re made with ground beef. No self-respecting Mexican (or proper Tex-Mex cook) would make enchiladas with ground beef and cream of chicken soup – LOL. But I wasn’t going for authentic with this recipe and I never say at all in this post that they are authentic. However, if you want, I have a recipe on here for traditional enchiladas made with corn tortillas. Let me know if you want the recipe and I’ll send you the link 🙂
