Now, let’s put the enchiladas together. Just add the mixture to the corn tortillas and roll each one up.

It is that easy to make this delicious meal.

What Kind of Enchilada Sauce Should I Use?

We used red enchilada sauce. My kids prefer this type.

However, you can use green enchilada sauce to change the flavor up. I like them both!

You can use store bought or homemade enchilada sauce.

What are the best corn tortillas for enchiladas?

We like to use yellow corn tortillas because they hold up better. However, feel free to use what you prefer.

If you like flour tortillas, you can use those.

Easy substitutions and Additions:

  • You can try using ground turkey instead of ground beef. It is delicious and no one can tell the difference.

How do you Make Beef Enchiladas not Soggy:

The best way to keep from getting soggy enchiladas is to not add to much sauce. We recommend slowly adding the sauce to cover the enchiladas when placing in the casserole dish.

You can also slightly fry the tortillas to help prevent them getting soggy.

How do you freeze Beef Enchiladas:

If you would like to freeze your beef enchilada, we recommend freezing them uncooked. Double the recipe and place one of them in the freeze. Place in a freezer safe container and wrap with aluminum foil.

They will last about 3 months if stored properly.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Which is better flour or corn tortillas for enchiladas?

Both flour and corn tortillas can be used for enchiladas, we like the flavor the corn tortillas give enchiladas.

What cheese is best for enchiladas?

When choosing a cheese for enchiladas, we recommend using a Mexican blend. This 4 cheese blends adds flavor and the best cheese for enchiladas.

Why do my tortillas fall apart when I make enchiladas?

To prevent your corn tortillas from falling apart, it is best to warm them up. You can also moisten them which makes them flexible to roll up.

  1. How do you keep the shells from breaking when you roll them? I heated in the microwave and when I roll them they always break, tear, fall apart! What’s the secret?

  2. Kelly – I put my tortillas in between damp paper towels and heat them for 45-60 seconds in the microwave. I don’t have any issues with them tearing by heating them this way.

  3. 5 stars
    These were so easy & ohhh sooo good! The best part is it only took me 30 min max from start to finish!

  4. 5 stars
    Very good but had to make mine into a casserole cause my corn shells kept breaking. Not sure what I did wrong but very easy and good. I even heated the shells in hot oil.

  5. 1 star
    Don’t use corn tortillas. They don’t roll or bend. I ended up using flour tortillas that I luckily had already.

  6. Made this for my husband and my brother last night night and they both loved it, and so did I! They said this taste is what hope for when they order an enchilada at a restaurant! 5/5, will be making this all the time now!

  7. 5 stars
    Made it just like the recipe and my family loved it. For my toppings I put them separate and let my family add what they like. I will make this again.

  8. 5 stars
    Fantastic! Made my own enchilada sauce and used chihuahua cheese instead of jack.
    This recipe is a keeper!

  9. How do I keep the corn tortillas from crumbling? Is there a secret? Complete disaster.

  10. If they are hot, they will not crumble. That is why I dip them into the enchilada sauce before crumbling. If you want want to mess with the enchilada sauce, go ahead microwave them between 2 damp paper towels and then roll.

  11. Black beans of the side would be perfect, meal goes further and more protein, so more filling.

  12. These look delicious and easy. I like not spicy, so I keep all spicy things for the fam to add on later if they like. Sour cream all the way for me! And I usually serve all “taco” type meals all by themselves… no sides. is that weird/ wrong?

  13. Topping this with diced tomato, onion and avacados, plus some Chalula hot sauce! With a side of yellow rice!

  14. I like to make Mexican rice and crockpot frijoles to go with my enchiladas, along with a lettuce and tomato salad with a side of guacamole.

  15. What a fun and simple recipe! I love topping enchiladas with sour cream, chipotle ranch and pico de galo!

  16. I would use low carb tortillas instead of the corn and would try pepper jack cheese.

  17. These look amazing! I would garnish mine with sour cream, fresh pico de Gallo and some queso. Serve this was some Mexican street corn and I’m sure it would be a great meal!

  18. I would add pico de gallo!
    Next to my enchiladas I love refried beans (a tablespoon of butter melted in) and a house salad with lite ranch!

  19. Those look so yummy. I would make them a little on the spicy side and add sour cream as a topping. My family loves it that way.

  20. 5 stars
    Thanks for sharing…it looks delicious. I look forward to trying this recipe! I will use lettuce, tomatoes, black olives and cilantro for the toppings.

  21. Yum! I add a can of mild green chilies to the beef. After baking, I top with a sprinkle of mexican cheese, Cotija, or crema, and don’t forget the cilantro.

  22. I add sour cream to the top!! as for a side, I always struggle. Any suggestions would be awesome!

  23. To my enchiladas I would add refried beans inside and Mexican rice. That’s probably a thing already in a Mexican dish but I love it in my enchiladas too.

  24. I like mild enchiladas with green sauce. I’m going to make these for dinner tonight.

  25. This looks so Yummmyyyyy. When I make enchiladas I side them with rice and beans. ?

  26. I can’t wait to do this recipe TONIGHT!

    Would you make it spicy or mild?
    I would make it mild for the children but spicy for me and hubby ?

  27. This is an awesome recipe and love that it’s fast and easy as an extra perk! Serve when friends come to watch Buffalo Bills football game. Serve with a side salad and with no more work to prepare during the game, I can enjoy the day too!

  28. I think I’d switch out the corn tortillas for flour, just because that’s my kids preference. Otherwise this looks so easy and delicious! I’d top it with some sour cream and sliced avocado and serve Mexican rice on the side, mixing a little of the enchilada sauce into that ?

  29. We make our enchiladas with shredded chicken and green sauce. I also add chopped green chilies and a white cheese blend. We have toppings of sour cream, chopped green onions, sliced black olives, and of course guacamole. We serve with a salad and yellow saffron rice with a can of mild Rotel mixed in.

  30. I like to use left over beef or pork roast to make enchiladas. We put the meat, rice, onions and cheese on the inside. Top the wrapped tortillas with enchilada sauce and more cheese. Green onions and tomatoes or salsa after they’re cooked. We use taco sauce or hot sauce to spice them up if the person wants them more spicy. Not everyone in my house likes spicy so I make them plain usually for that reason. We usually will eat tortilla chips, salsa and white cheese dip as a side. Sometimes more rice or refried beans topped with cheese as well.
    Making enchiladas is a great way to repurpose leftover meat of any kind to keep from wasting food while at the same time make a new dish for dinner. I just recently made a Barboca roast (which is very spicy) and will be using the left overs like this for enchiladas!

  31. 5 stars
    This recipe is super easy and delicious! I always kick it up a notch, because we like spicy. I add a can of fire roasted green chilies to ground meat mixture (I also use deer hamburger), and use pepper Jack instead of Monterey Jack cheese. If you don’t like spicy, it’s perfect the way it’s written!

  32. This recipe is delicious. I like to add extra cheese and we love it spicy spicy

  33. I would put lettuce, tomato, onion and a couple of dollops of sour cream on the top before serving.

  34. Yes I like to make it miild and then top my personal enchiladas with some spicy toppings for my personal preference.

  35. We always top enchiladas and burritos with sour cream, chopped tomatoes and chopped lettuce – a little cold crunchy taste to go along with hot and spicy.

  36. 5 stars
    I love topping mine with red onion, homemade
    salsa, Monterey Jack cheese and sour creme. My salsa is spicy enough and the Monterey Jack adds a little more punch. So I don’t add any hot peppers.
    I usually serve it with Ques Blanc & chips.

  37. 4 stars
    I would top mine with a little Pepper Jack, diced tomatoes, green onion and sour cream… I prefer medium, not too blah or too spicy. To the enchilada itself, possibly add some black beans and serve it all up with some elote or Mexican rice! Yum!

  38. Love making enchiladas with left over meat that I have and for a little more kick I use pepper jack cheese. When serving I usually top them with lettuce and sour cream, on so good. Paired with a small salad and you have a great dinner.

  39. On enchiladas, we love green onions and lots of cheese. Prefer very spicy. We love corn and salad with enchiladas. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

  40. I would serve this with Spanish rice and black beans. I can’t wait to try these.

  41. These look great! I loooove sour cream, salsa and more cheese on top!

    I like them spicy!! I’d add nothing because this sounds great!

    I serve refried beans and Spanish rice!!

  42. I add homemade black beans to my enchiladas and make my own enchilada sauce.
    I top my spicy enchiladas with sour cream and guacamole. Usually serve Mexican rice with them. I’ll often make 2-3 pans and freeze for later use

  43. I like to put Pico de Gallo on top. I would have cauliflower rice with cilantro or yellow rice as a side.
    I like mild enchiladas, Although I would like to try spicy. I don’t think I would add anything to the meat and spices.

  44. Love Enchiladas! Would this recipe work with a green sauce too? I always add extra cheese on top

  45. I am going to try this recipe on Sunday! We love enchiladas!!!!! We usually just do cheese or chicken and cheese. I can’t wait to try beef! I love to make homemade Spanish rice and refried beans to go with our enchiladas. I put sour cream out for people to put on top if they choose and of course homemade salsa.

  46. Your recipes is so awesome and good
    I think on this recipe I’d add little cream cheese. Let it get good room temperature. Then take some lime or lemon juice and help it smooth out more or better ( my wording bad sometimes ). I Also been using auntie no no instead of salt and pepper Thanks always for helping me out with new ideas for recipes. Blessings to you and yours ????

  47. We love enchiladas. We had them Tuesday night. We like sour cream, guacamole and cilantro if I have it.

  48. 3 stars
    Canned enchilada sauce? Seriously? Most of it tastes like dishwater. Make a good chili gravy. If you can make a basic flour, shortening, and water gravy, just add chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin. Always corn tortillas.

    I sometimes top the enchiladas with a fried egg and pico de gallo if I’m having them for breakfast. Always have Mexican rice and pinto beans in some form.

    For a variety, use flour tortillas, make a queso blanco and fill with shrimp, crab, and/or lobster.

  49. Looks yummy and easy, 2 of my favorite things! I’d add some black olives and more cheese on top, always more cheese!

  50. I use taco seasoning with a pinch of additional cumin. a chopped clove of garlic, and a can of black beans. Then cover them with enchilada sauce, a combination of Mexican and sharp cheddar cheese, salsa, some cilantro, sliced green onion, and sour cream I serve them with your recipe for Skillet Mexican Street Corn.

  51. 5 stars
    I love enchiladas! I would add hatch green chiles and cotija cheese. I would mix the red and green sauces. Loaded refried beans with everything I made the enchiladas out of and of course Cumin rice.

  52. So yummy with Mexican Restaurant Rice and CrockPot refried black beans! A bit of salsa and sour cream on top of the enchiladas makes them perfect.

  53. 5 stars
    Oh I love this recipe ! I’d serve it up with a big ol’ salad ! I thing your Mexican Corn would clinch it ??

  54. These look and sound amazing!! I would add some guacamole and rice to the side and maybe top it with some sour cream and diced jalapenos ?

  55. 5 stars
    I could make them mild and I would add cilantro and jalapenos on top for the spice! Serve with charro beans and cilantro lime mexican rice and sopapilla cheesecake for dessert!!! YUMMY

  56. This Enchilada recipe is a keeper! I have already pinned it to my Pinterest. I was going to get some ground beef today till I thought I have leftover Rotisserie Chicken. I can use that tonight instead.
    Top with sour cream and more salsa, mild.
    Refried beans and rice with them.
    Yum ?

  57. We like ours spicy, so I usually add a can of diced chilies, or chop up a jalapeno if I have one on hand. Then top with sliced green onion and avocado.

  58. 5 stars
    Looks Great! We top it with shredded lettuce, cheese & sour cream! We love serving with a side of bean dip & tortilla chips. We make it mild since we have little ones eating it with us.

  66. I like my encheladas spicy wit black olives on top or inside. I would serve them with a salad and refried beans

  67. 5 stars
    Looks like an easy recipe! I’ll probably use 1 can of enchilada sauce and then some canned green chilis or my husbands favorite, Hatch Green Chiles in place of the 2nd can of enchilada sauce.

  68. I would put sour cream and salsa on top of my enchiladas I use your recipe in the Lazy Day Cooking Club for the slow cooker shredded beef enchilada casserole it is so good

  69. These enchiladas look amazing! I would top them with sour cream and Cholula sauce…and being a Wisconsin girl, I’d put cheese inside and out. 🙂 I’d go more on the spicy side, and I’d serve them with some homemade Mexican rice and refried beans! 🙂

  70. Mild is the best fit for my family. I would add some cilantro and a dab of sour cream. We usually serve with rice.

  71. I would pur sour cream on them. Have to be non spicy. I would serve with red rice.

  76. I going to make enchiladas for dinner, I’m going to use this recipe, it looks delicious.

  77. Looks and sounds delicious. I think I’d go with the spicy level as is until I taste it. A tablespoon of chili powder and the monterey jack cheese might be enough.

  78. Mine would be mild with a wonderful dallop of sour cream, and a Mexican pineapple soda to chase it all down!!

  79. 5 stars
    I’m definitely a mild person, like baby mild lol. I like to top my enchiladas with black olives!

  80. 5 stars

  85. I would finish mine with a couple of over medium fried eggs on top with Pico de gallo! Buen provecho

  86. 5 stars
    What a great recipe! It’s so versatile to whatever you have on hand and whatever flavors and ingredients your family likes.

    For toppings I do those individually as I plate because our family has varied tastes. My BF and I like shredded lettuce, salsa, chopped tomatoes and salsa or verde sauce. One of my sons likes only shredded cheese and black olives and the other likes his super spicy with shredded cheese and jalepenos.

    I have served this atop refried beans and rice too.

  87. I typically make my enchiladas on the medium side…not too spicy, not too mild. That way others can spice them up with additional hot sauce (cholula is my pick). I serve black beans, fresh pico de gallo, Mexican rice, and guacamole as sides. If I’m having friends over, I will also make a pitcher of margaritas for “fiesta” time! YUM!

  88. 5 stars
    Enchiladas are a hit with about anyone, of any age. We like to add lettuce, sour cream, and guacamole. Great stuff!

  89. I enjoy putting sour cream and chives with onions on top of my enchiladas I also enjoy my enchiladas more on the mild side

  92. My husband loves flour tortillas instead of corn. I will try this recipe next month. Thanks for the delicious meal. We like to top with sliced jalapeños, chopped tomatoes and other taco toppings.

  93. Love this recipe and the ease of it. I had to have my dollop of sour cream and I was all set.

  94. I would love to make this and top it with some sour cream and Avocado slices. I would definitely make it more on the mild side so I could enjoy all the wonderful flavors. I might even throw a little Chipotle powder in there for a hint of smokiness. I like to serve enchiladas with a bit of Cilantro Lime Rice and refried beans.

  95. I’d definitely add some guacamole on the top, after pulling the enchiladas out of the oven?

  96. 5 stars
    New to the Dime world. I am going to try this for sure.. it looks tasty.

    I think I’ll add olives and make it mild for my funky system and I have no clue what clue to add since this will be my first go of it.

  104. 5 stars
    I like spicy everything! My favorite toppings are sour cream and guacamole. I would serve them with rice and beans.

  105. My great aunt taught me your technique of dipping the corn tortillas in the red enchilada sauce 65 years ago! This is the first time I have seen it done this way since. She always added chopped black olives, a little seeded jalapeño, cheese inside and on top, then bowls of toppings – sour cream, chopped green onions, and more jalapeños for the spicy lovers. Thank you for your recipes. We love getting your emails and have tried so many. ?

  106. 5 stars
    Great recipe. I would keep mild for some family members with the option to add jalapeños for those of us that enjoy spicy. Definitely top with sour cream as well. Serve with some Mexican rice & my family’s refried beans. Perfect meal any day of the week.

  107. I’m eating Paleo but loooove cheese! So I would substitute grain free tortillas and use dairy-free cheese.

    Looks delicious! I would finish the Enchiladas off with some sour cream and chopped scallions before serving.

  111. I prefer green onions to raw white onions, so I would probably add those on top of the enchiladas. We prefer spicy. I would serve crock pot refried beans with the enchiladas. I love your recipes and so does my family! ??

  112. Carrie – As with all your dishes, this looks so delicious! I’d put some chopped red onion and white queso on top. I live in Ok, but was born/raised in the northeast, so I don’t eat spicy foods, but still, I like flavor. I may add a little onion & garlic powder is all. Serve this with a roasted corn & black bean salad and some Fiesta saffron rice. My mouth is watering!

  113. What sounds good to me is a Chili lime Romaine salad with avocado, crumbled bacon, and fresh orange sections.
    Make a fresh corn casserole with cream cheese and sweet red bell peppers for a side.
    If you really want to go for it, serve Horchata.

  114. We like it mild. I’ll put salsa and sour cream on top and serve it with rice or roasted sweet potatoes.

  115. I’ve made this, but been awhile. This recipe looks easy and delicious. I’d add sour cream, shredded lettuce and black olives on top.

  116. 5 stars

  126. I prefer spicy and I’d put cilantro on top. This recipe looks so easy. I just wish my kids liked enchiladas.

  127. Looks so yummy. I’d top mine with a dollop of sour cream and a few chopped onions. Plus cheese. I love cheese so would also add some in the meat mixture.

  128. Hi, I love spicy sauce but my husband does not so I compromise and use mild on my enchiladas.

  129. I would also add cubed potatoes and peas to the enchilada. I grew up with potatoes and peas in my enchiladas and it always adds a little extra.

  130. This sounds amazing. I think I would make it with green enchilada sauce to kick it up a bit and put sour cream on top. Yummy!

    This looks really Good. I like to add chopped black olives in with t h e ground beef.

  132. I like to top mine with extra cheese, black olives and sour cream.i also serve them with refried beans and Spanish rice. Thanks for the recipe.

  133. I can’t wait to try this recipe! It sounds authentic as I lived in Texas for many years, and am accustomed to enchiladas made by friends who were born in Mexico. We ate them mild w warm spicy salsas on the side. Additionally, they were topped with chilled avocado slices with fresh cilantro, mexican sour cream, and finely diced pickled jalapeños available to add. Yum. My mouth is watering.

  134. I make my enchiladas mild and top them with sour cream, lettuce, and taco sauce. I also put cheese inside and on top before I bake them.

  135. We use ranchero sauce on our enchiladas covered with cheese and green onions. I make a batch spicy and one mild for the kids.

  136. Looks delicious! The majority of my family prefers mild but there’s one that likes spicy more. We would serve with refried beans and corn. Love your recipes!

  137. This sound sdelicious, I can’t eat spicy food so I would be happy with mild flavor.

    I would add crema and cotiza cheese as a topping or sour cream and have some Mexican rice and shredded cabbage with a drizzle of lime juice

  139. 5 stars
    This is so good with more red enchilada sauce, the melted cheese and sour cream on top!!!

  140. We like it mild. I’d add sour cream and salsa on top for me and my kids would probably just select sour cream. Serve with the Spanish rice recipe from the lazy day cooking club.

  141. Definitely topped with sour cream and maybe onions. Would also like to try it with the shredded chicken

  142. I would top the enchiladas with sour cream, green onions, black olives, and pickled jalapeños!! I am making this tonight!! ??

  143. I would add Mexican rice inside to make the beef stretch a bit further given prices these days and would definitely top with pico de gallo for a little freshness against the richness. Looks delicious!

  144. I have to try these! I love topping enchiladas with a little Crema Fresca, and homemade guacamole.

  145. 5 stars
    This looks yummy. Normally we use flour shells. Mild for most of us, spicy for our Texan in the house. Top with sour cream, fresh tomatoes and Cantina salsa. Serve with Mexican rice and black beans.

    I will leave my enchiladas mild. I would serve them with sour cream pico de gallo and some guacamole

  147. I would make them spicy with shredded lettuce, salsa,sour cream and guacamole as toppings. Rice and beans as side dishes.

  148. For me I make both mild and spicy when it comes to any Mexican dish. For enchiladas I add some black olives to the top and then back. I will usually add crema right before serving. I serve enchiladas with Spanish rice and cowboy beans.

  149. Put some olives and sour cream on top and it is perfection. Add it to a plate with rice and beans and everyone is happy for the rest of the evening.

  150. I would serve this with refried beans and Spanish rice. I would make the enchiladas mild.

  151. 5 stars
    We add pepper jack cheese in with the meat and serve them with lime wedges and a side of refried beans and mexican rice!

  152. I would make it mild. Definitely put some sour cream on top and maybe some lettuce. Serve it with chips and homemade salsa.

  153. This looks amazing! Definitely going to try it.

    I would add queso fresco, cilantro, green onion instead of white onion. I would drizzle some of my avocado salsa on top to give it a spicier taste. Serving it with black beans and Spanish rice. I add corn and carrots in my rice!

  154. Yummy with sour cream. Guacamole, olives and green Chiles. Chips and Spanish rice in the side.

  155. These looks so yummy! Plan on making them this week. Spicy with flour tortillas- that’s our preference. Serve with cilantro lime rice and black beans. Sour cream and avocado on top. Thanks for the recipe.

  156. Sounds yummy I’d make it mild top it with cheese tomato lettuce and a dollop of sour cream

  157. 4 stars
    This is a good recipe. I use the green sauce, avocado with cream cheese. Guacamole salad served on the side along with refried beans and Mexician rice. Pepperjack cheese mealted on top of the enchiladas right before serving ( stick in the oven on a low temp for a few minutes). Mild but if you like it spicy, why not chop some hot peppers really fine to either mix with the meat or stick on top with the cheeses. ( that way you can control the “heat” & it will be easy to leave a few W/O the peppers.)

  158. I like’em spicy. I would add crushed red pepper to the meat and then top with diced jalopeno or serranos. I prefer salsa verde ench sauce and corn tortillas!

  159. I would put Mexican cheese, olives and mix in some El Pato hot tomato sauce in with the enchilada sauce.

  160. I love making a homemade queso and homemade pico and love roasting jalapenos and dicing them and adding them to sour cream and or guac ? I’m gonna do the recipe you posted! Thanks so much!

  161. These look delicious. I would have to go with mild, black olives are good in enchiladas, rotel, even a cheese sauce.

  162. 5 stars
    I use flour instead of corn tortillas and I like to top mine with a ton of cheese!!

  163. Top these with lettuce and sour cream. A little queso drizzle if you like. I like them a little spicy, but not too hot. Black beans would be a good addition. I serve it with homemade Mexican rice and restaurant knock-off refried beans.

  164. Campbell’s soup makes a great fiesta cheese soup which I use to top enchiladas or burritos. Will try your recipe- thanks

  165. I would add lots of provolone and mozarella cheese; I like the sauce to be mild; I would serve with spanish rice, tomatoes with fresh basil and olive oil on the side, and homemade frozen margaritas!

  166. 5 stars
    Sounds yummy; can’t wait to try. I love topping mine with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese. Served with rice and refried beans along with a salad in the side.

  167. I cannot wait to make these enchiladas!! I think I will make them mild since my husband and I aren’t a big spicy fan. And to top them off I think I’ll add some sour cream and black olives!

  168. I would make ot spicy! And lot of sour cream. Looks so good I’m going to make it this week!

  169. This looks delicious and I’m eager to try it. I would make it with flour tortillas and serve it with refried beans and corn (or corn on the cob is in season now).

  170. I haven’t made these yet, but they sound delicious and easy to make. I would add a little pepper jack cheese and banana peppers in the meat mixture. But then I love both. Sour cream and some avocado to use as toppings sound good too.

  171. I also add a chopped green pepper to meat mix and I also top the meat with extra cheese inside. After it’s baked I top it with chopped tomatoes and sour cream.

  172. 5 stars
    I think this recipe was perfect for a quick weeknight meal. I would make my sauce more spicy with the addition of some type of chili pepper. I would probably chop up some jalapeños and add that to the ground meat with onions and garlic while it cooks. I think I’ll make this dish soon. Thanks for the reminder!

  173. These look amazing ! I would service with rice , beans and tortilla chips ! My family would love these !

  174. I would make the enchiladas mild and I would put chopped tomatoes and sour cream on top. I would serve Spanish rice with them

  175. This looks delicious! I would make it mild and too it with lots of cheese, sour cream and some shredded lettuce.

  176. We love having sour cream and guacamole on enchiladas. Chopped green onions on top also add something.

  177. This sounds like a great dinner when feeding a crowd! Especially if you serve it with creamy refried beans and Mexican rice ?

  178. 4 stars
    Recipe looked so good but was out of ground beef so I used what was on hand, ground chicken. I upped the seasoning a little bit & did everything else the same. Paired it off with your cilantro lime rice…such an amazing combination!

  179. I add extra cheese inside and top with sour cream salsa lettuce tomatoes and onion delious

  180. 5 stars
    Making me hungry, yumm. I personally would make it more spicy. I would add jalapeños for spice. I love mushrooms so I would add that as well.

  181. I would top mine with more cheese, cilantro, green onion and maybe some salsa. Spicy! Side salad, black beans or maybe French fries

  182. I would add chopped red pepper to the recipe as well as some dried pepper flakes. To combat the heat, I would serve with refrigerated orange wedges.

  183. 5 stars
    Easy looking recipe. Can’t wait to try it. Would go great with some tortilla chips on the side and sliced green onions on top.

  184. I would make these enchiladas non spicy and allow each person to add heat for their individual taste.

  185. I would add some green peppers. Top with more cheese, bit of salsa. I like it milder and most definitely add some sour cream and more cheese

  186. I’d definitely add some jalapenos and probably a spicy cheese. I’d serve it with some kind of rice most likely.

  187. I think I would add sour cream to the top and add dark red kidney beans to the hamburger meat. It sounds good and seems easy enough to make, I’ve printed the recipe and will have to try this. Thanks!

  188. I would add sour cream as my topping, would like it spicy, but have to make it mild for the other eaters to enjoy, I would serve it with the Mexican rice, and that green stuff, yummy!

  189. These look great, I cant wait to try! I would top with sour cream, lettuce and tomato! I think these would be great with the lazy day spanish rice!

  190. We like a little spice and my additional toppings would be sour cream, lettuce and tomato

    Made this last night with a couple of minor modifications. Since my wife and I like a little spice, I mixed 1 can mild and 1 can of medium enchilada sauce. She makes great Spanish rice, so that was a great side. Your recipe is awesome!

  192. 5 stars
    I would love this if is was a little spicer. I added chipotle pepper. Perfect and medium salsa, perfect. So good! Love all that you make!,??

    Was lucky that I had the ingredients and this enchilada recipe was a perfect moment of cooking inspiration. I did add some chopped back olives. It was really good.

    I top enchiladas with sour cream, diced onions, tomatoes and lettuce.
    The coolness of the vegetables an.d sour cream tastes great with the spicy of the sauce

  195. 5 stars
    The recipe looks good as is, would just garnish with lettuce, tomatoes and guacamole, I will probably use Bueno frozen “hot” red chile coz its easier than making it from the chile pods!!

  196. I would add chopped celery with onions to ground beef. This adds a little crunch and veggie that the kids don’t even realize is there. Also some jalapenos for my husbands who like heat.

  197. We ?? Mexican food! I like to put spanish rice mixed with refried beans and either beef or chicken in our enchiladas. Mexican cheese blend covers them prior to the oven. Spicy, but not TOO spicy; just enough for a real kick, but not enough for smoke to come out of our ears. We usually serve them with tortilla chips and Rotel cheese dip, along with a salad.

  198. My corn tortillas completely fell apart when I tried to roll them (even warmed) as I have seen in other comments. Flour tortillas definitely work better if you’d like the rolled enchiladas. I love corn tortillas and just layered it like lasagna instead of trying to roll them up. Delicious!

  199. I clicked on 2x the recipe because my son had friends over and followed instructions to a tee except I only chopped half an onion. The kids, friends, husband and myself loved it. My only issue was with the tortilla dipping in sauce step. I put several of the tortillas in the pan at one time and when I got to the bottom three they broke. This was my fault because I thought this would save time. This recipe will be going into our rotation because not only was it inexpensive, it did not take long and we had almost all the ingredients already!

    Thanks for the recipe!

    I love Hispanic food but I have never been a big fan of enchiladas. This recipe is so good. It was a huge hit with the family. I will definitely be making it again.

    Tip: Dipping tortillas does work. Find a rythm.
    It has a bit of a kick. I have an idea of how I’ll make it next time.
    Over all good recipe for beginners too.

  203. Great recipe, my family loves these enchiladas.
    I always heat my tortillas in a skillet prior to dipping in the sauce & have no problem with them falling apart.

    A little bit hot for my taste but my dad loved it. I used flour tortillas because when I used the corn ones they cracked and broke up.

    My boyfriend is a very picky eater and each time I make enchiladas he doesn’t want me to add any seasonings to the meat… well tonight I took the risk and made this recipe. Nervous on what he would say… he looked at me and pointed at his empty plate and said “Those were literally the best enchiladas I have ever had!”
    Definitely making these again! Thank you!

  206. I followed the recipe exactly. It tasted really good, but my tortillas kept falling apart while I tried to roll them up. I heated the enchilada sauce and dipped them like the recipe says. Did anyone else have this issue?

  207. 5 stars
    Made these yesterday. Amazing. The only issue I had was the corn tortillas cracking when wrapping with filling. It did not effect taste, but was hard to serve nicely. Next time I will try frying them slightly and see if that helps. Served with mexican rice(great in the instant pot) and refried beans.

  208. Thanks so much! Yes, sometimes the corn tortillas are frustrating. I’ve noticed that white corn tortillas hold up better than the yellow corn.
