Beef Enchiladas

These are tasty! And it makes enough for 2 pans!  So freeze one for later!!

Beef Enchiladas

  • 2 lbs cooked ground beef, seasoned with House Seasoning (or salt & pepper) – to taste
  • 1 (10.75oz) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 1/4 c sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 (4oz) can green chilies, drained
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 c water
  • 2 Tbsp Fajita Seasoning
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp beef bouillon (or 1 cube)
  • large flour tortillas
  • 3 c cheddar, shredded
  • 1 (10oz) can enchilada sauce
  • 1 (6oz) can sliced olives, drained

3-4 stalks of green onion, chopped

Mix soup, sour cream and chili powder in a medium sauce pan.  Bring to a simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.

*This next step I do because my family doesn’t like to see “green thingies” in their food.  If your family doesn’t object then skip this step.  Place onion, green chilies, lime juice, water, fajita seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and beef bouillon in blender.  Pulse a couple of times until well blended.*

In a large sauce pan, combine onion mixture (or all the ingredients not blended), cooked beef, and 1 cup of soup mixture.  Warm this over medium heat until heated through.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 2 9×13 pans.  Evenly divide soup mixture and spread on the bottom of  the 2 pans.  Next place some beef mixture down the middle of a tortilla.  Sprinkle some cheddar cheese on it and roll up.  Place seam side down in pan.  Continue until all beef mixture is used and both pans are full.  Evenly divide enchilada sauce between both pans, spreading over the top of the tortillas.  Sprinkle rest of cheddar cheese over top.  Add chopped green onions and sliced olives if desired.  Bake for 25-25 minutes or until thoroughly heated through.

For frozen pan: Defrost before cooking as directed.

I did half the pan with the toppings – kiddos would NEVER go for the green thingies or the olives!

I found them to be delightful!

And for your viewing pleasure:  my crazy kiddos

“Mom, look at my cool fruit snack booger!”

“I’m cool with my blue ‘stache”

“What did you put in that ice cream cone?!”  (and yes, I’m snarfing down a blue cone, too)
