I’m not particularly athletic.  Ok, that’s an understatement.  I’m not even remotely athletic.  I’m the least athletic person I know.  I joke that if you ever see me running, you’d better start running too because something is after me.

As a kid, I played baseball.  And hated every minute of it.  We were league champions, no thanks to me.  The season couldn’t end soon enough.  It’s just not in my genes.  As my mother would say, “He’s just not built for sports.”  LOL!

It's the perfect recipe for a busy weeknight! #recipe #southernbite #enchiladas #easy #quick #weeknightFast forward a few years and the man upstairs thought it’d be funny to gift me with an athletically-inclined kid.  And when I say athletically-inclined, I mean he’s actually pretty dang good.  I mean, his first word was “ball.”  Baseball, basketball, football, the kid just loves sports.  But soccer is his passion.

And with practice several times a week with a smattering of games in between, we’re on the run a lot.  He plays fall and spring league and there have been mentions of playing all-stars this year too.  It keeps us very busy.  But we love that he loves it.  And that he does.

But 6:30 practices can put quite a cramp in our evening schedule when you consider we’ve got to tackle homework and everything else – especially when it comes to supper.

We rely on quick and easy meals just like these 5 Ingredient Enchiladas to make quick work of getting a homecooked meal on the table.

But don’t think that few ingredients mean a lack of flavor.  These babies are deee-lish! These quick and easy enchiladas only call for 5 ingredients and are ready in no time! It's the perfect recipe for a busy weeknight! #recipe #southernbite #enchiladas #easy #quick #weeknight

But when you strip things down like this, the quality of each ingredient is even more important than normal.  That’s why I love using Borden® Cheese in my recipes.  It’s crafted with high-quality, wholesome ingredients on family farms across the country.

And the new Borden® Cheese Thick Cut Shreds are my new favorite thing.  I’ve always preferred the thicker shredded cheese in casseroles and things like this, so I was over the moon to hear about the new Thick Cut Shreds from Borden® Cheese.  When these thick shreds melt, you get creamy, tasty deliciousness.  And you can actually TASTE the cheese!

They’re an excellent source of calcium and the Four Cheese Mexican Thick Cut Shreds offer up 6 grams of protein per serving!

5 Ingredient Beef Enchiladas
Prep Time
20 mins
Cook Time
35 mins
Total Time
55 mins
 
Servings: 8 enchiladas
Author: Stacey Little | Southern Bite
Ingredients
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1 (10-ounce) can red enchilada sauce
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas (corn will work as well)
  • 1 (8-ounce) package Borden® Cheese Thick Cut Shredded Four Cheese Mexican (about 2 cups)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain the excess fat away and return the meat to the skillet and to medium-low heat. Stir in the salsa and cook until heated through. Remove from the heat.
  3. Pour about 1/2 of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  4. Warm the tortillas according to the package directions. Add about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture down the center of each tortilla and top with about 1 heaping tablespoon of cheese. Tightly roll each tortilla up and place them in the dish, seam side down. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over them and sprinkle the remaining cheese over.
  5. Tightly wrap the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

  1. Hope I can find that thick cut cheese as that really makes this look delicious. You are proving that quick doesn’t mean you sacrifice flavor!

    I get the thing about running. Oh I used in my callow youth but now in my 60’s it would not be a pretty sight.

  2. Oh my goodness Stacey! It’s as if you were reading my mind. I always make chicken enchiladas and actually wondered about beef ones just a few days ago. I will definitely have to try these soon. MMMM! Will be looking for that special cheese too…Thanks so much.

  3. I fix these all the time! My husband and two (athletic) boys love them too! I am like you not gifted in that area at all!! In fact I can fall down or upstairs with no help at all HA! Have a good day love your recipes!

  4. This looks like a great meal. And I love simple. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  5. Deb Leonard says:

    Is there any particular brand(s) of enchilada sauce that you prefer?

  6. I am going to try this recipe this week-end! I am happy to know you like Borden dairy products. My understanding is they are a company with heart and integrity.

  7. Shelly in Sunny San Diego says:

    Thanks for sharing on Meal Plan Monday!! Shared this on Facebook and saved to my recipe file for future reference!! New follower too!

  10. The blasphemy FLOUR TORTILLAS FOR ENCHILADAS!?!?!?!?? No no no NO!!! Corn will not work AS WELL that is the only way!! What is you doing baby????!!!

    • LOL! Yes, they are certainly more traditional, but my family really dislikes the corn tortillas. I can budge with this one, but MUST have corn tortillas with my tacos.

  11. Trish in VA says:

    Hi Stacey,
    I made the enchiladas for dinner last night. SO GOOD!!! Thanks for another great recipe.
    (And so glad that I have leftover enchiladas for lunch today! WIN! 😁)

  12. Wow looks good, must try.

  13. Tillamook has the thick cheese called Homestyle, I think. I just noticed it yesterday. We don’t have Mortons (in Denver) that I know of. Soon everyone will have it! It’s a great idea…

  14. Thanks SO MUCH

  15. Mary Jo Spring says:

    Since I have found this recipe about 6 weeks ago, we have had it 3 times now. Husband LOVES this. I shred my own cheese, I just prefer it over package cheese. This recipe is a winner❤️

  16. I made these for dinner tonight. They were so quick and easy to make. Everyone loved them and I even have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for a GREAT recipe.

  17. I love your recipes. Theses are by far my family’s favorite.
