my sister's best friend brought this back from visiting her brother's family in the air force out west in the seventy's, and we have loved it ever since. the only changes I have made is exchanging picante sauce for a taco seasoning package, to cut down on salt somewhere, and adding more meat and cheese sometimes. but this sure is a very easy recipe and enjoyed very much by my family and friends. hope you like it too. enjoy!!

How to Make ground beef enchiladas


  1. spray a 9x13 pan set aside and chop 2 onions and put in bowl
  2. brown and drain ground beef and add 1/2 a jar of picante sauce and cook till liquid is gone--I do this to cut down on salt in taco seasoning packages and I still get flavor and extra veggies too.
  3. open all three cans of chili no beans and add 1/2 a can of water to soup in sauce pan, mix and heat till warm and spoon thin layer into 9x13 pan
  4. take one floured tortilla and spoon a heaping spoon full of meat down middle--add onion and lots of co/jack cheese and roll up and lay seam side down on top of chili in pan repeating till all 10 tortillas have been filled and in pan ( 8 short way and 2 long way in pan ) and pour warm chili soup over top
  5. take a fork moving rolled up tortilla gently, so chili can sink down between rolls easier. now sprinkle on any left over ground beef mix. top with a heavy layer (we like
    extra cheese) co/jack cheese. do not cover.
  6. bake 350 for 20 to 30 minutes or cheese melts, watch this is a heavy and hot pan, let rest 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
  7. we like to top with lettuce--tomatoes--salsa or picante--onions and sour cream, and oh so good and filling, hardly ever have any left over
