Recipe Tips:

  • Instant Pot – You can use the instant pot if you prefer to make this recipe.
  • Enchilada Sauce – We used canned enchilada sauce, but you can easily make your own with easy ingredients.
  • Roast – After cooking the roast in the sauce and seasoning then shred easily the roast. Mix the roast back into with the sauce for added flavor. You can shred the roast with forks or with a stand mixer.
  • Casserole Dish – Feel free to make this shredded beef casserole can be made in a baking dish. This would be a great option if you have leftover roast. Bake the enchilada in the oven for about 30 minutes.

Substitutions and Additions:

  • Creamy Enchilada’s – Mix cream cheese into the beef mixture for a creamier enchilada. Cut into cubes and allow to melt with the cooked mixture.
  • Green Sauce – You can use different sauces for this recipes. Try it with green sauce or use a hot sauce if your family can handle it.
  • Low Carb Option – If you are following a low carb diet, you can use low carb tortillas. They really have improved the test and I am sure your family won’t be able to tell the difference.
  • Tortilla – We used corn tortillas in this casserole, but you can use flour tortilla.
  • Change the Cheese – You can mix the cheese if you prefer. Add pepper jack cheese to your cheddar cheese mix for a little heat to the enchiladas.
  • Green Chiles – Add green chiles to the beef mixture for added flavor.
  • Taco Seasoning – You can easily use this taco seasoning instead of the seasoning listed. Make your own taco seasoning or use the packet seasoning.
  • Roast – We used rump roast but you can use a chuck roast if you prefer.

How to Store Leftovers:

Storing leftovers is easy to do with this recipe. I like to place the leftovers in individual containers in the refrigerator. If stored properly these enchiladas will last about 4 days.

To reheat, place on a microwave save dish and reheat in 1 minute intervals. If you have leftover sauce you may need to add to keep from drying out.

Why we Love Ground Beef Enchilada Casserole:

  • Easy Recipe – We love to change things up when we make enchiladas. This is an easy way to make them and even my kids can help.
  • Simple Ingredients – This recipe only requires a few ingredients which gives it so much flavor.
  • Easy Slow Cooker Recipe – I love that the slow cooker does all the work.
  • Meal Prep – My husband loves these enchilada leftover. They reheat up well and the flavor is amazing even several days of being in the refrigerator. This is the perfect meal to prepare at the beginning of the week and eat for lunch.

  1. I’m worried about mixing in the corn tortillas… Do they get soggy? If I know ahead of time that there will be leftovers, should I just have people add corn tortillas to their individual portions?

  2. The corn tortillas do get soft but not soggy. I add them in with the cheese right before serving so they do not get overcooked. If you are nervous about it, I think that it would be fine to serve in the individual bowls instead of putting them into the crock pot.

  3. 5 stars
    This was great- everyone loved it! I did tweak it a bit. I added a can of drained diced tomatoes, and a can of drained and rinsed black beans. Half an hour before it was done, I scooped out a cup of the liquid, and stirred in two tsp of corn starch, and stirred it back into the crockpot.
