Ground Beef Enchiladas

As previously mentioned, we love enchiladas. Is there another dish out there that is easier? I personally don't think so. Regardless of my pork disasters, Mr. ShoeFanatic has the utmost faith in me when it comes to enchiladas. We just bought a bunch of ground chuck and this recipe has been bookmarked for quite some time. Onward...

1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 lg can enchilada sauce
1 lb ground chuck
1/2 onion, diced
1 taco seasoning pack
1 oz cream cheese
1 c white rice, cooked
8 tortillas
1 bag Mexican shredded cheese
Sour cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Whisk together cream of mushroom soup and enchilada sauce in a med bowl until it's not lumpy. Set aside.

Brown meat and onion in a dutch oven over med heat. About 10-15 minutes. When meat is thoroughly browned, add taco seasoning and however much water it calls for in the directions (mine called for 2/3 c). Cook water out, about 10 minutes.

Add 2 tbsp of the enchilada sauce mixture and the cream cheese. Cook this into the meat mixture; about 5 min. Add rice last and stir to mix well.

Spray a 9x13 casserole dish with nonstick spray. Heat up your tortillas in the microwave between 2 damp paper towels. About 20 seconds.

Put a spoonful of the rice/meat mixture in the middle of a tortilla. Sprinkle a bit of cheese on top. Fold and lay seam side down into the casserole dish. Continue for the rest of your tortillas.

When they are all stuffed and folded, pour the remainder of the enchilada sauce mixture on top and sprinkle the rest of the cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and cook for another 10.

Serve with toppings of your choice. We like sour cream.

I'm quitting my job to sell enchiladas on the side of the road. That's how good these are. Very creamy and cheesy! I got 2 thumbs up from Mr. ShoeFanatic as well. Yay!

I meant to put some jalapenos into the meat mixture but I forgot. I think they'd be really good cooked in.

Served With:
Grilled Corn on the Cob

Le Petit Pierogi
