Cheddar Beef Enchiladas Recipe

"I created these enchiladas to satisfy several picky eaters in our house," explains Stacy Cizek of Conrad, Iowa. "They were an instant hit and are now requested at least once a week. I especially like that we can enjoy this meal twice by freezing half for a later (and busier) day."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 10 to 12 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) salsa
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in taco seasoning and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in rice. Cook and stir until liquid is evaporated.
  • 2. Spread about 2 tablespoons refried beans, 1/4 cup beef mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese down the center of each tortilla; roll up. Place seam side down in two greased 13x9-in. baking dishes.
  • 3. Combine salsa and soup; pour down the center of enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • 4. Bake one casserole, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Cover and freeze remaining casserole for up to 3 months.
  • 5. To use frozen casserole: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through and cheese is melted. Yield: 2 casseroles (5-6 enchiladas each).

"This was definitely a hit, the only thing I changed was to add some canned green Chile's for more spice and less "taco" flavor to the meat mixture. I didn't measure, go according to your taste, they were awesome."

"Thanks for sharing the recipe. We loved it. I ran out of beans for the last one (just shy by 1 Tbls). I added onion to the beef while it was cooking too. Also we used more cheese, can you ever have enough cheese? (We don't think so.) Turned out wonderful and nice to have the 2nd pan in the freezer ready for another night when I don't feel like cooking. Since there are only 2 of us, we should have made several smaller 8x8 pans instead of 9x13, but I always follow the recipe exactly as possible the first time through and make changes the next time if needed. I think that will be the only other change we'll make next time. Thanks again for sharing such an "easy" recipe that makes enough for two suppers! Love it!!"

"These are quite tasty! They were easy to assemble, and it was great to be able to freeze a second dinner from the recipe. The frozen casserole cookked up just fine straight from the freezer, taking about 90 minutes. (I found this out by accident when I forgot to take it out the night before!)"

"This is one of my favorite recipes! I make it all the time for our family, as well as friends who've just had a baby, are ill, have lost their job, etc. It is a HUGE hit with everyone. I find that I get MORE enchiladas out of this recipe than indicated, and they are good size. I lighten all the ingredients (ground turkey, 2% cheese, 98% fat free soup, fat-free beans, etc) and it still comes out wonderfully. I cannot recommend this recipe enough!!!"

"This was my first time preparing the recipe and I was a little disappointed. I was not able to prepare two casseroles with the ingredients listed. I used exact measurements and found that there were not enough refried beans if you put 2 tablespoons in each one. I only had one can of beans so I will freeze the rest of the meat/rice mixture for a different use. I put extra sauce on the enchiladas for tonight, but not all of it, because it would be too soupy. Did you mean 2 teaspoons of refried beans? We will see how they come out......"

"My family loves this recipe. Very easy to make and easily adaptable to favor different tastes. I'm not a bean eater so we skip that, but I love spanish rice and we add 2 cups of that instead of just plain rice. Also, a small can of green chilies and some diced onion added to the beef mixture gives it a real "zing". Highly recommend this recipe!"
