Starting my week off with some BEEF ENCHILADAS straight to my face 🤤 My favorite meal to make for just myself, a big group or whenever I’m in a pinch. If you keep enchilada sauce in the pantry and tortillas in the freezer, you can most likely always find a way to whip up some type of enchilada recipe!
My favorite way to make these is BEEF + VEGGIES! Eating grass fed ground beef is a great way to get tons of protein, iron, B & D vitamins, and more. Crucial for our health, especially women!! Don’t be scurrred of the red meat y’all!
- 1 12 oz container of enchilada sauce
- 6 tortillas warmed up
- 1/2 cup Mexican shredded cheese
- 1 lb grass fed ground beef
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/3 cup shredded Mexican cheese
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tsp tapioca flour or corn starch or 1 tbsp regular flour
- 1 bell pepper chopped
- 1/2 white onion chopped
- kosher salt & pepper
- Avocado oil
- Pico de Gallo
- Pickled jalapeños
- Sour cream
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once it’s hot, add in your ground beef. Break it up with a wooden spoon as it browns.
Once the meat is almost fully browned, add in seasonings. If you like more “saucy” beef, add in a slurry of flour + water and let it simmer on low heat until the liquid dissolved (6-8 minutes).
Remove the beef from the heat and immediately stir in the shredded cheese.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add avocado oil to the pan. Add in your veggies and season with salt, pepper and any other seasonings you'd like.
Saute for about 5-7 minutes, stirring every minute or so. Remove from heat, and add to ground beef.
Assembling the Enchiladas
Pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce in a baking pan to coat the bottom.
Add the filling to your warmed up tortillas, roll them up and place the opening side down on your baking pan. Corn tortillas are harder to roll up! Make sure you heat them up beforehand and also don’t stress if the tortilla rips. It will still taste great!
Pour the remaining sauce over the tortillas to coat then add cheese.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
Add your toppings and serve!
