Layering enchiladas is a heck of a lot easier than rolling them up individually, in my opinion. But if you prefer rolled enchiladas, then I say “to each his own”. This recipe is pretty basic, giving you a lot of freedom to make changes and create your own recipe.
- 1 can Enchilada Sauce
- 1 Packet Taco Seasoning
- 1 lb ground turkey or beef
- Flour or Corn Tortillas
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or Mexican cheese blend
- Taco toppings of choice: lettuce, tomato, cilantro, green onions, black olives, sour cream, chili peppers, chopped onion, guacamole
In a skillet, brown the meat. Drain; Add the taco seasoning, and follow the instructions on the taco seasoning packet to finish the meat. Spread a third of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Place three tortillas over sauce, tearing to fit bottom of pan. Spoon half of the meat mixture over tortillas; sprinkle with 2/3 cups cheese. Add three more tortillas. Spread refried beans over tortillas; top with remaining meat. Sprinkle with 2/3 cups of cheese. Layer remaining tortillas; top with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes, then top with choice of taco toppings before cutting.
LOW CARB OPTION: cut some zucchini into boats (see image) and stuff the boats with the enchilada filling and toppings!
VEGETARIAN OPTION: fill the enchiladas with seasoned mashed sweet potatoes instead of ground meat! so good….
