Beef Enchiladas


▢1 pound lean ground beef
▢1 packet taco seasoning or homemade taco seasoning
▢1/4 cup water
▢8 tortillas – corn tortillas or taco-size flour tortillas
▢2 cups enchilada sauce
▢16 ounces shredded colby jack cheese


Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray; set aside.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ground beef and break up with a wooden spoon, cooking and stirring often until fully browned. Drain off any excess fat.

Stir the taco seasoning and water into the ground beef in the skillet and cook over medium heat for another 2-3 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat.

Spread about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

Lay out the tortillas and scoop the seasoned ground beef into the center of each tortilla, distributing equally until all of the meat is used. Use a spoon to arrange the meat in a straight line down the center of each tortilla.

Roll each tortilla up tightly and place into the baking dish seam side down. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce all over the enchiladas.

Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the enchiladas.

Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese is fully melted.
Serve hot with the toppings of your choice.
