This no-fuss supper of cheesy beef-filled enchiladas is full of flavor and ready in no time. Topped with fresh salad fixings, salsa, and sour cream makes this a complete meal that will become a family favorite in your house.



1 pound ground beef

1 package or 1/4 cup taco seasoning

2/3 cup water

88” whole wheat or white flour tortillas

116 ounce can refried beans

14 ounce can of chopped green chiles

12-ounce package Mexican Style 4 Cheese, shredded

1  10-ounce can green enchilada sauce

1  10-ounce can red enchilada sauce


Brown ground beef and drain.

Season the meat with taco seasoning, add water, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Lay 1 tortilla on a flat surface and spread 2 rounded tablespoons of refried beans across the middle.

Place 2 tablespoons of meat on top of the beans.

Spread a teaspoonful of green chiles onto meat.

Add about an ounce of shredded cheese to top off the layers.

Roll the tortillas up and place them in a greased 9×13 casserole dish.

Pour red and green enchilada sauce on top of rolled tortillas.

Top with more cheese and green chilles.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until bubbly.


Feel free to add whatever you like inside and out of these rolled tortillas.

If you prefer saucier enchiladas, add more enchilada sauce before baking.

If making ahead, add the sauce and top with cheese right before baking in order to avoid soggy tortillas.
