How to Make Beef Enchiladas?

The first step is to brown your ground beef with the onions. A trick I recently discovered is to crumble up the beef using a potato masher. It works so much easier and better than a wooden spoon. I think I actually use the potato masher for cooking ground meats more than I do for mashing potatoes. Ha!

Once the beef and onions are done, you can add in the garlic and then take the pan off the heat. To complete the filling, mix in a little of the enchilada sauce, black beans, green chilies, and seasonings.

Fill the tortillas and then place them in the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan with enchilada sauce in the bottom. Smother those babies with more enchilada sauce and then top it with loads of cheese.

Filling for ground Beef Enchiladas loaded with black beans, onions, and green chilies.

These Beef Enchiladas take just 20 minutes to bake in the oven and then you can top them with anything you like. I like to keep things simple but you can finish these easy beef enchiladas off with tomatoes, jalapenos, red onions, cilantro, avocados, sour cream, lettuce…there really are so many choices!
