Three Cheese Beef Enchiladas is an easy dinner that contains only a few ingredients. It also makes a great freezer meal.
A few weeks ago I posted about my Three Cheese Chicken Enchiladas. A reader left a comment that they had tried it with beef and it was really good. I love getting comments like this because I love to hear how you like my recipes. I also love to hear how you change them up and make them your own.
I was so glad that a reader tried it and let me know how good it was because I had thought of using beef, but had not tried it yet.
I had some tortillas that needed used up and I had some cream cheese left over from an office party, so I decided it was a great time to make the Three Cheese Enchiladas using beef.
I am so glad I tried these. They have become a family favorite. I think we might like them more than the chicken version. They were really good. I know that these enchiladas are probably not authentic, but they are so good.
Enchiladas make a great freezer meals, so make an extra pan or two for the freezer. You will be glad you did when you need an easy dinner on a crazy busy day.
My favorite enchilada sauce to use in this recipe is my homemade enchilada sauce.
Easy dinner that uses basic ingredients. This also makes a great freezer meal.
- 1 1/2 cups shredded jack cheese
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 ounces cream cheese softened I know that this is not authentic but it made them really creamy and good
- 1-19 ounce can of red enchilada sauce or homemade enchilada sauce
- 2 cups of cooked ground beef
- 8 to 10 flour tortillas, corn tortillas, or gluten free tortillas
Combine 1 cup of jack cheese, 1 cup of cheddar cheese, cream cheese, 3/4 cup (or so) of enchilada sauce, and beef. Mix until well combined.
Pour about 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce into a 9x13 pan and spread it around.
Place about 1/4 cup of filling into each tortilla shell ( I just guessed on the amount here, it may have been 1/3 cup).
Roll up and place in pan.
Pour remaining sauce on top and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until heated through.
