Weeknight Beef Enchiladas


Years ago I came across a recipe from Southern Living for Weeknight Enchiladas. They were absolutely amazing and it has been my go-to recipe ever since. Give them a try and I’m sure they’ll be on your favorite list too!

Weeknight Beef Enchiladas

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (10 3/4 oz) can tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 (10 oz) can mild enchilada sauce
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided


  1. Cook beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until meat is browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain and return to skillet.
  2. Stir soup and enchilada sauce into meat mixture.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup meat mixture onto each tortillas; sprinkle tortillas evenly with 1 cup cheese. Roll up tortillas and place seam-side down in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Pour remaining meat mixture over tortillas.
  4. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese, bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts.

If desired serve with sour cream, guacamole, rice and/or refried beans!

Freezer Instructions

Cover with sealable plastice wrap directly against the top of the enchiladas. Wrap with heavy-duty aluminum foil. If using a foil pan, I like to wrap a couple times. If using a reusable glass dish, place lid on over foil.

Before baking, remove lid, foil and plastic wrap. Then recover with foil.

To bake thawed:  Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Bake as directed above.

To bake frozen: Bake 1 hour.
