Beef Enchilada

foodmyworld's picture
This beef enchilada recipe is one of my favorite meal ideas. This one-dish delight I find really easy and quick to make after a long day when I am not left with much energy. You could also make the ground beef mixture in advance so that it is even easier and faster for you after a busy day at work.
  Ground beef 1⁄2 Pound
  Enchilada sauce 28 Ounce (readymade)
  Chopped onions 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Minced garlic/Finely chopped garlic 3 Clove (15 gm) (adjust garlic as per taste)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Crushed black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Tortillas 5
  Grated parmesan cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Grated cheddar cheese 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Cooking oil 1 Tablespoon

Take a skillet and add in a tbsp of cooking oil. Add the onions and garlic and sauté. When the onions are done add in the ground beef , salt and pepper. Sauté till the beef is nice and brown. Add in the half the enchilada sauce and mix well till all ingredients are well-blended. Keep aside.

Take the individual tortillas and spread the enchilada sauce on each of them. Add in a spoonful of the mixture in each of them. Lay out the tortillas in a baking dish. Pour any remaining sauce over it. Sprinkle the grated cheese over it. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Take out sprinkle some more of the cheese and Enchilada sauce (if you like a little extra liquid). Serve.
