This recipe for easy ground beef enchiladas is perfect for those days that you are craving enchiladas, but want something that are fast and easy to make. You basically need ground beef, corn tortillas, enchilada sauce, and cheese. Those are the main ingredients.
First thing for these easy ground beef enchiladas, you are going to brown some ground beef with a little onion. I use fresh, but you could even just use a little dry minced onion if you don’t have any fresh on hand. Once that is browned, drain off any excess grease and mix in some salt, pepper, salsa, chili powder, paprika, and cumin. Then let this all simmer together for about 10 minutes.
Add a little enchilada sauce to the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Now when it come to enchiladas sauce, not all are created equal. I personally prefer the Rosarita brand. A lot of other brands are watery and don’t have a great flavor to them. Warm the remaining enchilada sauce. Then dip each tortillas in the sauce, fill with some of the meat mixture, then roll up and place seam side down in the baking dish.
Once all the tortillas are filled and arranged in the dish, pour any remaining enchilada sauce over the filled tortillas.
