Creamy Beef Enchiladas Recipe

Creamy Beef Enchiladas Recipe

These American-style enchiladas are rich, creamy and loaded with cheese. Kids will like the texture and the fact that they have just a touch of south-of-the-border heat. Belinda Moran - Woodbury, Tennessee

"This dish was very good! I halved the recipe and used corn tortillas instead, which gave the enchiladas alot of flavor and used more enchilada sauce on the bottom and over the top. We garnished them with shredded lettuce, sour cream and diced jalapeno. Simple to make, too! Will definitely make again!"

"These are AMAZING! This is my go-to recipe for a quick, delicious dinner. I put a full can of enchilada sauce into the mixture. I bake covered with just the enchilada sauce on top for about 15-20 minutes then sprinkle the cheese on top and bake uncovered until the cheese is melted. This has prevented the tortillas from getting dried out."

"These were good. I did a few things differently. First, I used leftover steak. Secondly, I lightened the recipe a little bit by using reduced fat sour cream and healthy Request soup. I also added a packet of low sodium taco seasoning and a can of refried beans. In addition, I used fat free tortillas. I also used a full can of enchilada sauce in the sauce and just spread that on the bottom of the pans and used the remaining to top before baking. I liked the cream of mushroom and sour cream with the sauce. I will make these again."

"These enchiladas were very good. I was worried at first after reading these reviews but had to find out for my self and I'm glad I did! I also added about 1 TBS to the filling which made the whole dish!"

"I was not impressed at all with this recipe. The filling was incredibly bland and had a strong sour cream and soup taste. Both my husband and I could not finish our enchilada and I ended up just throwing it all out. Maybe it would have been better had I not cut the recipe in half as I did not want two casserole dishes, but I will not try to make it again to find out."

"This is so good! It lives up to its name of "creamy".My family thought it was just a little bland the first time I made it, though that could be because I use mild enchilada sauce, so I add a TBS or so of taco seasoning to the filling. It makes all the difference. I think 1/2 a cup of filling per tortilla is a bit too much, so I use a large kitchen scoop that measures around 1/3 cup. That is just the right amount of filling for me, plus it fills more tortillas that way. I've substituted velveeta for the grated cheddar and that works, too.

If your family likes Mexican style food, they should like this!"
