5 Ingredient Beef Enchiladas











1 pound lean ground beef

1 cup chunky salsa

1 (10-ounce) can red enchilada sauce

8 (8-inch) tortillas (Flour preferred, but corn tortillas are more traditional.)

1 (8-ounce) package Borden Cheese Thick Cut Shredded Four Cheese Mexican (about 2 cups)


1️⃣ Preheat Oven & Prepare Baking Dish: Set your oven to 350°F and lightly coat a 9×13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.


2️⃣ Brown the Beef: In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain any excess fat and return the beef to the skillet on medium-low heat.


3️⃣ Add Salsa: Stir in the chunky salsa to the beef and continue to cook until the mixture is thoroughly heated. Then, remove from heat.


4️⃣ Prepare Baking Dish: Pour about half of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of your prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly.


5️⃣ Warm Tortillas: Follow the package directions to warm the tortillas, making them more pliable for rolling.


6️⃣ Assemble Enchiladas: Spoon about 1/4 cup of the beef mixture down the center of each tortilla. Add approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of cheese on top of the beef. Roll the tortillas tightly and place them seam side down in the baking dish.


7️⃣ Top with Sauce and Cheese: Drizzle the remaining enchilada sauce over the rolled tortillas and sprinkle the rest of the cheese evenly on top.


8️⃣ Bake: Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until the enchiladas are heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
