2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 yellow onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
1.5 lbs ground beef
salt and pepper
1 oz can diced green chiles I used mild, 4
1 oz can black beans rinsed and drained thoroughly, 15.5
8-10 flour tortillas
3 cups Mexican-blend shredded cheese
1 batch homemade red enchilada sauce or 1 can store-bought enchilada sauce
chopped fresh cilantro and green onions for garnish
- If you’re making homemade enchilada sauce, prepare it.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Add oil to a big skillet and heat over medium high heat. Add ground beef and crumble (use a potato masher to make it easier). Once ground beef is about halfway cooked, add onion, garlic, and green chiles and saute for 3-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain beef mixture.
- To make the enchiladas, spread a couple of tablespoons of the enchilada sauce over the tortilla. Add beans in a line down the middle of the tortilla, then add in a spoonful of the beef mixture, drizzle some extra enchilada sauce over the meat, then add one third of a cup of cheese. Roll up tortilla and place in a greased 9 x 13″ baking pan. Continue with remaining tortillas.
- Spread the remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the tortillas, and sprinkle with the remaining shredded cheese.
- Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, broiling the last few minutes if you want the cheese to be a more golden brown. Garnish with chopped cilantro and green onions.
** you could easily swap out ground turkey, diced chicken, pre-cooked shredded chicken or all beans for the beef in this recipe.
