Ground Beef Enchiladas June 3, 2012

I made this recipe for dinner last night and boy it was good.  The recipe took an hour of prep time and it baked for 30 minutes.  It was a time consuming recipe; however, we enough leftovers for a second dinner.  My kids spent the night at Grandma’s, so my husband and I enjoyed cooking this meal together!

Time:  1 hour of prep and 30 minutes to bake

Substitutions:  I didn’t have any olives and I only had one can of green chilies.


Next time (and there will be a next time) I will only use 1 pound of ground beef for many reasons.  (1) I purchase ground beef in 1 pound packages.  We ended up using the remaining 1/2 pound for a large hamburger patty.  I would much rather just use up the entire pound and not have to come up with an alternative use.  (2)  I had so many enchiladas that I had to use a second pan.  I think if I cut down to 1 pound, I will still have enough enchiladas for two dinners.  (3)  The recipe calls for green onion and cilantro for a filling.  I ended up running out of both toward the end.  Cutting down to 1 pound of beef should resolve this problem.


I usually make chicken enchiladas, but my husband says he doesn’t think he wants to go back after eating these!
