Ground Beef Enchiladas

These are not enchiladas that are dressed up with a bunch of extra fancy ingredients or inventive flavor combos. No, these are basic enchiladas that are unapologetic in their cheesiness and short list of ingredients. That doesn’t mean they’re not good – they most certainly are, completely comforting in their heartiness and simplicity. They’re the enchiladas you turn to when you want something easy, cheesy, and guaranteed to make the whole family happy.

With any enchiladas, your life is going to be much easier if you take the time to warm your tortillas up. They roll easier and break less. Some recipes will have you do a quick fry of each tortilla or even dunk each one in sauce, but you don’t need to go to that trouble here. Wrapping the tortillas in a damp towel and microwaving them until warm will get you by just fine.



1 lb ground beef

1/2 white onion, diced

3 tablespoons taco seasoning

1/4 cup water

10-14 corn tortillas, warmed

2 cups enchilada sauce

3 cups Cheddar cheese, grated

Sour cream, for serving

Fresh cilantro, for serving



Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef and onions until beef is no longer pink. Drain any excess fat and season beef with taco seasoning. Add 1/4 cup water and simmer until water has reduced completely. Remove from heat and set aside.
