Tips for making Crock Pot Mexican Ground beef casserole even easier:
One of our favorite time saving tips is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them.
They are such a time saver and you make cooking so fast and easy. I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need.
It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes. We save a ton of time during the week by having items like this already on hand chopped and ready to go in the freezer.
This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
Learn and how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen! Lots of the recipes we cook call for onions and peppers so this is such a great time tip that we use frequently.
You will love having peppers and onions all ready to go! It is quick and easy.

I made the taco burgers and seasoning for camping this year. Everyone loved them.
I so want to try this recipe, because I just love mexican food, but could I make it without the beans and corn?
Do you cook the ground beef before combining with other ingredients in the crockpot?
Yes, I think it would still taste great without the beans and corn. Thank you!
Yes, I brown the ground beef first for this recipe. Thank you.
Great to hear – Thanks for sharing Matthew!
This recipe is a great hit in our house. It is so easy to .prepare and have ready on busy days.
Great to hear! Thank you for sharing!
Is that 2 (10 oz) cans of enchilada sauce or 10 ounces total in the recipe?
It is 2 (10 oz) cans of the enchilada sauce. Thank you!
What size oval crockpot would this recipe call for? Could I use my 4 qt?
I used a 6 quart crock pot for this recipe but I think a 4 quart would work fine – Thanks!
My family loves Mexican food. I did green enchiladas sauce instead of red. I also think adding the corn tortillas is what makes this dish.
My family loved this packed with flavor recipe and we even had leftovers the next day with “no complaints” lol will be making this one again for sure!
I love this recipe! My dear mother-in-law ( now gone) who lived in California, used to make this all the time. She called it ”Lazy Enchiladas” and baked it in the oven. The cheese on top would be very crisp and yummy. She always used corn tortillas as in your recipe, never flour, because that would make everything soggy. I am going to make this soon-thanks!
