I am a sucker for Mexican cuisine. The spices, flavors, and of course a large margarita to wash it down; what’s not to love? When it comes to ordering Mexican food, I am a traditionalist. I tend to order a quesadilla or some tacos, but never enchiladas. I like handheld foods and dislike making a mess when I eat, which is what I associate with eating enchiladas. Due to my husband working late and my craving for Mexican food kicking in, I decided to roll up my sleeves and meal prep beef enchiladas last week. They were amazing and so easy to assemble, bake, and reheat for a busy night!
I’ve said this before, Siete Foods is one of my favorite brands to support and use in everyday cooking (and snacking). Siete is a family owned and operated business, with roots stemming from seven (Siete) family members. Their line of grain-free tortilla chips, tortillas, hot sauce, and their enchilada sauce is made with clean and healthy ingredients. I made chicken enchiladas before using their cassava flour tortillas), and decided it was time to make beef enchiladas using Siete sauce. You can find their enchilada sauce on their website, linked here! I also want to note here that if you cannot find Siete brand, do not worry. Grab the brands you have access to, and enjoy creating delicious food in your kitchen.
This recipe is a very easy, no-frills version of enchiladas, and can be meal prepped for the week. What I love the most about this recipe, is how simple it was to prepare, assemble, and bake. Now that I’ve made these beef enchiladas, I know that it’ll be on repeat for the next few weeks. I hope you love them as much as we do!
- 1 lb ground beef I prefer grass fed
- 5 tortillas
- 1/4 cup enchilada sauce
- 2 tbsp enchilada sauce for the taco meat
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning
- 1/4 cup water
Preheat the oven to 375°.
Heat a large pan over a medium flame and brown the ground beef. Add in the 2 tbsp of enchilada sauce and taco seasoning, and 1/4 cup of water.
Bring the flame to a low/simmer and continue to cook the beef until the water is absorbed and the ground beef is fully browned. Turn off the stove and set the beef aside.
Pour in a little of the enchilada sauce to the bottom of a 9×13 oven safe dish.
Take the tortillas and lay them flat. Take the ground beef and add 1.5 spoonfuls to the tortilla, sprinkle some cheese, and roll the tortilla from one end to the other.
Place seam-side down into the baking dish, repeat for the remaining tortillas. Pour 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce on top of the tortillas, more of the ground beef, and the cheese.
Bake for 20m. Top with sour cream and avocado.
