Easy Beef and Bean Enchiladas

What makes this meal perfect is that as good as it is the first day the leftovers are twice as good! Layers of corn tortillas, beef and beans, cheese, and red enchilada sauce, this meal comes together in less than 30 minutes!
Beef and Bean Enchilada’s are a crowd pleaser!
IMG_0632This recipe is a new favorite at our house.  My son told me that it was definitely blog worthy and on top of that it was restaurant quality!  Wow really?!  I’ll take it.  I kinda found his statement funny because aren’t restaurants always trying to make food “just like homemade”. And we are trying to copy-cat our favorite restaurants all the time.



Well I’ve never had beef and bean enchiladas quite like this in any restaurant. Not only is this recipe super easy it is a great make-ahead meal, it’s also easily doubled, freeze one for later and throw one in the oven for dinner tonight!


If the rush of the holidays are pulling you away from the table, I encourage you to make your family this easy meal, grab a bag of chips and some salsa call everyone to the table and spend some time with those you love!

Much love,

    I agree, definitely blog worthy. I think it’s funny we try to create restaurant “quality” meals at home and they try to cook like dear old mom.

    This recipe got rave reviews from my teenage boys and husband! The math wasn’t quite right though with the tortillas – If you do 4 layers of 4 tortillas, you need 16…Unless it is really 4 layers of 3 tortillas?
    Anyway – I did 16 and it turned out great! Thanks Sheila!

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for letting me know…I will review the recipe and make the needed corrections. I do quite a bit of scribbling as I’m developing a recipe and sometimes I don’t translate it properly…so I appreciate it when I get feed back! Merry Christmas! Sheila

      I usually use La Victoria because that’s what they sell in my grocery store, I think any brand would work as long as you like the flavor. Hope this helps!
