How to Make Beef Enchiladas

by Sarah Heath

Super easy, not authentic, very tasty recipe


  • 1 Tomato sauce (15 oz can)
  • 2 Tablespoons Chili powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic salt
  • ½ Teaspoons Cumin
  • 1 ¼ Cups Water
  • 8 Flour tortillas
  • 1 Pounds Ground beef
  • 1 Cup Onions, diced
  • ½ Cups Bell pepper, diced
  • 1 Can olives, sliced
  • 2 Cups Shredded cheese
  • 1 13x9 inch pan
  • Cooking spray
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    I made this up as I went last night using ingredients I had on hand.

    Step 2

    To make the enchilada sauce I mixed the tomato sauce, water, and spices in a saucepan and brought to a boil, then let it simmer while I assembled the other ingredients.

    Step 3

    Obviously you could use canned sauce instead of making your own.

    Step 4

    Lay out a tortilla. I used the kind from Costco that come raw and you cook yourself. So yummy!

    Step 5

    Brown the beef. Add onions and peppers and cook until soft. Splash in some of the sauce. Add 1/8 of the mixture to the tortilla.

    Step 6

    Add some cheese

    Step 7

    Stack a couple olives on top.

    Step 8

    Roll each filled tortilla and put in the pan. I sprayed the pan with cooking spray and put a little sauce on the bottom first. After all enchiladas are finished pour the sauce over the top.

    Step 9

    Top with remaining cheese

    Step 10

    Cook in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until warmed and cheese is gooey and melty.

    Step 11

    Top with guacamole, diced tomatoes, sliced green onions, sour cream, salsa or whatever you desire.
