  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 8 flour tortillas (medium sized)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2.5 cups seasoned rice (I cheated and used a pack of Lipton Sides "Taco Rice" and it was pretty tasty)
  • 1-2 cups Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 can (10oz) enchilada sauce
  • 2-3 Tbls sour cream (optional)

Directions

  • Cook and season ground beef and prepare rice.
  • Warm the tortillas (I like to place them over the flame on my gas range for about 5-10 seconds on each side).
  • If desired, mix the can of enchilada sauce with the sour cream.
  • Put enough sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 dish so the tortillas will not stick. And preheat the broiler.
  • Assemble the enchiladas; lay out the tortilla and put down a bit of cheese, then some rice, then some ground beef, then a bit more cheese and some of the sauce. Roll up tight and place into the dish seam side down. Repeat this for the rest of the tortillas.
  • When they are all in the dish cover them with the sauce (amount to your liking) and top with cheese. Broil for ~10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Notes

had a pound of ground beef in the refrigerator with no inspiration on what to make with it. Then I decided on Mexican. I threw this together and loved the end result. Yummmmy!
