Beef and Cream Cheese Enchiladas

Enchiladas will always hold a special place in my heart as they were one of my Grandpa’s specialties. He would pull you into the enchilada assembly line of dipping tortillas, adding the fillings, rolling them up tight and tucking them into the ban to be baked into wonderful goodness. Everyone would gather around with a plate in hand once those puppies came out of the oven to eat up as many as they could. It’s such a wonderful memory of a simple comfort food made with love and bringing family together that I will never forget. I can’t wait to show our own kids that someday!

 

Another thing about enchiladas that was my Grandpa’s specialty was lettuce. Lettuce was rolled up in every single enchilada with beef and cheese. It was so darn simple, but SO so good! A beef enchilada just isn’t the same without lettuce in them! You just have to try it for yourself to believe in this savory goodness.

And oh buddy, cream cheese is always the way to go! When you have all of the goods rolled up together in one perfect pan full, you just can’t stop eating them! The perfect comfort food and the way to the heart of everyone who digs in. It’s just like a pan-full of love. Food is memories and comfort and this is the perfect dish to serve for a weeknight meal, football party, Sunday dinner or any occasion that you just need some good ol’ comfort for.

Roll these up and bake them to perfection to serve up to your family and friends and fill their hearts and their tummies.

PS: I used my Homemade Enchilada Sauce to make these and it was SO good! If you don’t have the time to make the sauce homemade, then use your favorite canned version will work perfectly!

Description

Enchiladas will always hold a special place in my heart as they were one of my Grandpa’s specialties, and these beef and cream cheese enchiladas do not disappoint! Tortillas are rolled up with ground beef, cream cheese and lettuce to create a decadent enchilada!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 6 cups enchilada sauce
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups baby romaine lettuce
  • 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese, plus 1 cup to top the enchiladas with
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a medium saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add in the garlic and the beef and cook until the meat is browned and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
  2. Prepare an assembly line to make your enchiladas. Spread 1 cup of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 13×9 pan. Spread another 1 cup of enchilada sauce on the bottom of a round plate, pan or platter (whatever works!) that is large enough to dip the tortillas into the sauce.
  3. Working with one tortilla at a time, dip both sides into the prepped enchilada sauce on the plate to coat both sides of the tortilla with enchilada sauce. Splitting the filling ingredients (ground beef, cream cheese, lettuce and cheddar cheese) evenly between the 8 tortillas, fill the dipped tortilla with the filling ingredients, roll it up tightly and place into the prepared 13×9 pan. Continue until all of the tortillas have been dipped, filled, rolled and tucked in the baking dish.
  4. Pour the remaining 4 cups of enchilada sauce over the top of the prepared enchiladas, making sure that all of the tortillas are covered. Using the separate cup of shredded cheese, sprinkle an even layer of cheese over the top of the enchiladas.
  5. Bake the enchiladas for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese topping is melted and the sauce is bubbling. Enjoy!
