Beef Enchiladas

Hey everyone… How’s everyones monday going? I hope it’s going well. We here in Pittsburgh had a bout with some snow this weekend but not nearly as bad as some of our friends in the D.C. area or others that got hit worse. I hope you all made it through. 🙂

Today, I have an easy South of the Border recipe: Beef Enchiladas. This won’t be a spicy recipe as my family doesn’t like spicy. For shame, right?!?! I love the heat in food kicked up a notch but I have to do that on my on time. Lol. But you will find that this recipe will please most palates.

Now there wasn’t much in the way of spices because one, my family doesn’t like it spicy and two, you get nice flavor, for those that like it mild, from the chili beans, the corn and pepper, and the corn and black bean salsa. When you are preparing a dish with semi-prepared ingredients, you don’t want to go crazy with the spices and over-spice a dish.

Here we go…


1.5 lbs ground meat

1 bag of frozen corn with peppers

1 can chili beans, 15 ounce

2 cans enhilada sauce, 15 ounce

2 Tbs Onion Onion

1/2 cup Corn and Black bean salsa

2 cups mexican styled cheese

1 – 10 pack of tortillas, fajita sized


Let’s start by putting the ground meat in a skillet and browning it.


Once browned, drain off most of the grease then add the Onion Onion, Corn and Black Bean Salsa, 1 cup of cheese, and corn with peppers. Now I cooked the corn and peppers before putting them in this pot as I didn’t want excess water in the mix.


Mix it up.


Let’s get our pan together. Cover the bottom of a baking dish with enchilada sauce.


Once that’s done, we are ready to start adding in our enchiladas. Grab a tortilla and put a good scoop to a scoop and a half of the beef mixture in the tortilla.


Fold the sides over and place the overlapped part of the tortilla shells facing down in the pan. Continue until the pan is full.


Cover with enchilada sauce.


Now, cover with the rest of the cheese (not pictured) and place in that preheated oven and cook for 25  – 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and there you go…


Plate up with your favorite sides. I made an impromptu guac and rice.


I hope you enjoy this as it was DEVOURED at our house. 🙂
