Cheesy Beef Enchiladas...

This is a delicious and easy meal you can have ready in 30 minutes.
The sauce freezes well, so you can make extra for the future when life gets even busier


Cheesy Beef Enchiladas...




I posted the original recipe for this dish, Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
awhile ago and it was very popular here at Walking on Sunshine.


We enjoyed it with chicken, so I thought, why not Cheesy Beef Enchiladas.
The secret to this dish is the sauce.
It is FABULOUS.

Ingredients for the sauce:

3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 oz) can diced green chillies
1 (4 oz) can diced jalapenos 

Ingredients for the Cheesy Beef Enchiladas:

Ground Beef
1 can refried beans
flour tortillas
cheddar and Monterrey jack cheese


Let the deliciousness begin...

In a pan, melt the butter.
Then stir in flour and cook 1 minute...


Add broth and whisk until smooth.  
Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly...


Stir in the sour cream, the can of chilies and the can of jalapenos, which I do NOT drain.  
Do not bring to boil, you don't want curdled sour cream...


Sauce is ready...


Now on to the Cheesy Beef Enchiladas...

Brown the ground beef in a pan.
Once the meat is browned, add the can of refried beans and combine.
Spread the beef and refried bean mixture down the center of a flour tortilla
sprinkle with cheese...


Roll up and place seam side down in a baking dish...


Cover with the DELICIOUS sauce.
If you have extra sauce, don't worry, it freezes well.
Sprinkle more cheese on top...


Bake at 415 until bubbly, maybe 15 minutes.
Then turn the broiler on and broil until the cheese is 
slightly browned and looking DELICIOUS.
This only takes a few minutes, so do not walk away...


DELICIOUS...


Serve with a side salad and you have a very easy and fabulous meal.


Enjoy your day!

    Beef and chicken enchiladas are a fav around here too. We love mexican food, it is just so flavorful and different.
    Thanks for coming by, and yes, you will like those easy tacos, my hubby loves them too.
    My hubby is an engineer so when it comes to computers there is not much he can't figure out, so glad,
    cause I am the opposite, very techy challenged!! lol
    I am amazed I have learned as much as I have to be honest, cause I used to be like..........you want to teach me about the computer??
    Only if you tie me to the chair! lol
    Have a good evening,
    Blessings, Nellie

  11. How much ground beef and what size tortillas do you use? The hubby isn't big on Mexican, but this would be a perfect quick meal for the kids and myself when he's at work in the evenings!

    Thank you for continuing to help to fight for Lauren's Law!

  19. I was wondering have u ever tried using beef broth instead of Chicken broth, I only ask because I have tried beefy cheesy enchiladas with some nice creamy chicken sauce and maybe its my taste buds but chicken beef didnt seem to mix well, so I figured subbing beef broth instead, I think Im gonna make a small bit of beef sauce and small of chicken and make 2 seperate pans and give it a try.
