My Mamma’s Enchiladas


Easy Enchiladas

1 lb hamburger meat
Taco seasoning
1 small can enchilada sauce
4 – 8 oz of shredded cheese (half a bag)
1 package burrito size tortillas, corn or flour

Mexican made easy is my new middle name! I like my Mexican recipes because I can mix them up and use all of my left overs each week. Made Taquitos and now have half a bag of cheese, most of a package of taco seasoning and 4 tortillas? Well, Mexican Pie, Mexican Dish, or Enchiladas are your quick and easy answer.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make filling: Cook your hamburger meat and taco seasoning according to directions.Mix 1/4 to 1/2 of enchilada sauce with taco meat. Stir in half of shredded cheese.

Put tortillas between two damp paper towels and heat in microwave for 1 minute, or until warm and pliable.

Spoon filling into middle of tortilla. Fold sides toward middle. Place seam side down in a baking dish or cookie sheet lightly covered with non-stick cooking spray. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Top tortillas with remaining enchilada sauce. Bake for 15 minutes. Last 5 minutes of baking, top with remaining cheese.


  • This can be vegetarian, chicken, or hamburger. Use Spinach and use a sour cream sauce. Use left over canned chicken. Add black or refried beans for a beef and bean enchilada.
  • For spice, add a well drained can of Rotel tomatoes to your filling.
  • Make a white enchilada sauce from cream of chicken soup and sour cream to use instead of store bought red sauce.

BTW: This recipe was HUGE hit with my hubby. He ate two for dinner and polished off the rest the next day at lunch. He said he liked it better than restaurant enchiladas!!! Cheaper and better than dinner at a restaurant? Can’t be that.
