Hearty Beef Enchiladas Recipe

Hearty Beef Enchiladas Recipe

(These are sooooo good! Make sure to fry the tortillas in oil, it only takes a few minutes and really makes the taste pop! Yet another low-fat recipe, courtesy of Bella, lol! PS: I love "Sam's Choice" medium salsa available at Walmart or Sam's Club, love the La Victoria products, too.)

Hearty Beef Enchiladas - Taste of Home - Test Kitchen Favorites 2004

My husband loves his food extra-cheesy, so I can never put too much cheese over the top of these enchiladas! You can set out small bowls of diced onions and tomatoes so folks can add their own garnishes. —Joylyn Trickel


1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion

1 can (15-1/2 ounces) chili beans, undrained

1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce, divided

1/2 cup salsa, divided

Vegetable oil

7 corn or flour tortillas (8 inches)

1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives


In a large saucepan, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the beans, 2/3 cup enchilada sauce and 2 tablespoons salsa; set aside.

In a skillet, heat 1/4 in. of oil. Dip each tortilla in hot oil for 3 seconds on each side or just until limp; drain on paper towels.

Top each tortilla with 2/3 cup beef mixture. Roll up and place seam side down in an 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Drizzle with remaining enchilada sauce and salsa. Sprinkle with cheese and olives.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.

Yield: 7 enchiladas

I'm so glad to see this recipe. I love enchiladas and just asked a friend in Arizona if he would ask his wife for her recipe for them.
Thanks for sharing this recipe and having the mental telepathy. ;-) LOL

Oh, that looks wonderful. I know it isn't the healthiest way to eat, but I'm a sucker for extra-cheesey, too.

I made the dish last nite and it was very good. I did 4 the tortilla's in oil as suggested, and then did the other 3 plain. My DH & I both agreed that cooking in oil wasn't worth the extra calories. In fact, it was hard to tell the difference. Maybe we already had high fat tortilla's! LOL Anyway, the recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much for sharing!
