Beef Enchiladas

I am finally posting my first recipe! I decided to share this recipe because it has always been a family favorite. I got the recipe from my mom. When my siblings and I were younger, my mom would ask us what we wanted for dinner and we always told her "beef enchiladas!" They are easy and yummy!

What you'll need:
1 lb. ground beef
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (i usually don't measure, i just throw on what looks good)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can tomato soup
1 (10 oz.) can red enchilada sauce (Old El Paso is my favorite brand)
1 pkg. flour tortillas
1 can olives (these are optional, i usually don't use them, but this time i had them so i threw them on)
sour cream (also optional)

1. Brown the beef and drain the grease. Then add the chopped onion to the meat. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, combine soups and enchilada sauce.
3. Pour enough sauce into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish to create a thin layer- this will help the enchiladas to not stick to the pan.
4. Spoon 2 to 3 tbs. of meat into each flour tortilla. Also put some cheese into each tortilla. Roll up.
5. Place seam side down into pan.
6. Pour remaining sauce on top of rolled tortillas.
7. Sprinkle with cheese and olives.
8. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 25-30 min.
9. Serve with sour cream. Enjoy!
(I usually get about 8-10 enchiladas out of this recipe)

ps- just had to say that everyone so far has posted great recipes, i am excited to try them!


  1. Yum-O!! These look delish. I'm going to have to try them as I am in a major dinner slump right now. It's the warm weather. Makes me never want to cook...anyone else ever feel like that? Probably not. :)
