Doesn’t that look good? This dish will serve 6. Well let’s head on into the kitchen! We begin with our list of ingredients…

Ingredients
1 1/2# ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, lightly chopped
1 7 oz. can fire roasted diced green chiles
2 TBS cumin
1 tsp Mexican oregano
1 tub medium hot salsa
1 28 oz. can of enchilada sauce
1# of Mexican cheese blend, split 1/3# and 2/3#
1 package of large flour tortillas
Sour cream
Cilantro leaves

Let’s start by getting all the ingredients together and ready to use. In a large skillet, heat over medium high heat, and add the ground beef, the onion and the lightly chopped cilantro.

Now is the time to preheat the oven. Set your temperature to 350° F or 177° C. Let’s get our pan ready for the enchiladas, shall we?

Use a 9 x 13 glass baking pan. I use glass because it will not react to the tomato in the sauce. Coat the bottom with about 5 TBS of the enchilada sauce and 5 TBS of the salsa and stir them together. Your pan should look like this:

Now, let’s go on to making the enchiladas! Take a tortilla and lay this on a plate. To the center spoon in 3 heaping spoonfuls, and spread as this next photo shows.

Now fold in the sides, then take the edge closest to you and roll it up! Add this to your pan with the seam side down. When you are done with all the enchiladas your pan should look like this:

Now pour the enchilada sauce over the enchiladas leaving about 1/2 cup as reserve. Then spoon two good size spoonfuls of salsa over each enchilada. Let’s take a look!

Now, for the remaining cheese. Cover the enchiladas with the remaining cheese spreading it evenly over the enchiladas.

Now pop that pan into the oven and set the timer to 30 minutes. Midway through cooking, check out your enchiladas. I like to spoon some of the sauce over them at this point.

When the timer goes off, serve this up with a hefty spoonful of sour cream topped with cilantro!

Now doesn’t that look good? Tuck the reserved sauce away in the fridge if you are not going to eat all 6 servings. This will give you a bit extra to add to the enchiladas when you reheat them!

Well, I am going to go eat! Thanks for stopping by today and see you next time for another fabulous recipe! Be well… ^..^

This is not your typical rolled up enchiladas covered with sauce recipe! Instead, I made it like a lasagna!

Enchilada Casserole Preview!

Why did I do it this way? Because once I make the rolled up enchiladas I have a hard time finding the dividing line between them, so doing it this way solved the problem for me! Most of this recipes instructions will be through the photos!

Ingredients
1 1/2#’s ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 package of taco seasoning
1/2 cup of water
1 small can of dice fire roasted green chilies
3 TBS chipotle chili paste
1 large can of enchilada sauce
4 1/2 burrito sized tortillas
3 cups of grated cheese, I used cheddar with a bit of jack
1 cup of salsa
Guacamole and Sour Cream to finish

Brown the beef with onion

Then drain the fat off the meat.

To the browned beef add green chilies, taco seasoning and chipotle sauce

Add the water and combine this well and heat to simmer. While the beef is waiting to simmer, grab your 13×9 baking pan.

Add enchilada sauce to baking pan

Do a layer of flour or corn tortillas

Notice the cut on the tortillas. Just like lasagna you want to bring the edges to all sides. By now the beef mixture should be good. Turn the heat off. Next,

On top of the tortillas, add a layer of cheese

Next add salsa

Next add the ground beef mixture

Cover with another layer of tortillas followed by the sauce

Next add another layer of cheese

Followed by another layer of tortillas and sauce

On top of the tortillas, add a layer of cheese

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. When done, remove from the oven.

Let this sit after it comes out of the oven for 5 minutes

Look at that beauty!

Slice and serve topped with sour cream and guacamole

Hopefully you might try making enchiladas this way! We are looking forward to the tasty leftovers tonight! The flavor should be even better tonight!
