  3. Add 1 cup cheese. Mix until melted.
  4. Pour half of the enchilada sauce into a cake pan, spreading evenly over the bottom of the pan.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the tortillas, wrap them up, and place seam side down in your pan on enchilada sauce.

  7. Cover with tin foil and bake at 350º for 40 minutes.
Easy Enchilada 2

I got this recipe from my Aunt Steph for my bridal shower last summer. All the guests wrote down their favorite recipe for me to keep! I received a recipe box full of amazing dishes, but these Easy Enchiladas are a repeat offender at our apartment. They’re easy (wow!), delicious, and they make great left overs! I usually freeze half of the mixture that fills the tortillas for another dinner, and it reheats great!

If you want to make these a bit healthier use ground turkey instead of beef, skip the cheese, and mix in a can of pinto beans in place of the refried beans! Enjoy!
