Easy Enchiladas (Beef or Chicken)

WOW!!! These are incredible! Better than the enchiladas at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I absolutely love this. A favorite enchilada recipe of mine.

Because of the many different options, it is also very versatile.

Frying the tortillas gives them texture and develops the flavor better. I will never skip that again, no matter how tempted I am.

Easy Enchiladas (Beef or Chicken)


1 lb ground beef or 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
1⁄4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons chili powder (more or less for your taste)
1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
3 cups shredded cheese (I like the jack or cheddar combos)
1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce
olive (optional)
12 corn tortillas


If using chicken, boil chicken in water. Then rinse and shred with fork. Add onion and garlic.

If using ground beef, brown with onion and garlic, drain.

Add next 7 ingredients (worcestershire sauce through black pepper).

In another skillet, heat oil. Add tortillas, one at a time, for 10 seconds on each side. Drain on paper towel.

In 10×13 baking pan, pour just enough enchilada sauce in the bottom to coat the bottom of the pan.

Fill each tortilla with a spoonful of meat mixture. Cheese, onions, and/or olives can be put inside each enchilada at this time, if desired.

Roll tortilla and place seam side down in pan. Continue with remaining tortillas.

Pour remaining enchilada sauce over tortillas and top with cheese (additional olives may be added if desired). At this time, pan may be refrigerated for several hours or overnight.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes (30 minutes if refrigerated).

Top with sour cream.
