What's for Dinner: Quick Ground Beef Enchiladas

When your gang catches the tantalizing aroma of these enchiladas wafting from the oven, they'll run straight to the dinner table. Luckily, this quick-cook dish won't keep them waiting long.

Servings: 4


  • 1 package McCormick Enchilada Sauce Mix
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • Shredded cheddar cheese


Prepare the enchilada sauce according to the package directions, using the tomato sauce and water.

Brown the ground beef and drain. Add 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce to the beef.

Dip each tortilla into the remaining sauce and then spoon about 3 tablespoons of the meat onto each tortilla with about 1 teaspoon of chopped onion (or to taste). Fold over both sides of each tortilla and place seam sides down in a 12-by-7-inch baking dish. Spoon the remaining sauce over the enchiladas and cover with cheddar cheese. Bake in a 350-degree-F oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Variations: You may substitute refried beans or diced white-meat chicken for the beef to make bean or chicken enchiladas. You may also substitute shredded seasoned beef.

Chopping onions is just one of dozens of tasks that call for a chef's knife. Shop for a chef's knife.
