Easy Enchiladas

Even though I haven't been on here in a very long time, I have been trying new recipes. I just haven't found anything that really "wow-ed" me...until this recipe. It's so easy that I nearly skipped it thinking that anything this easy would most certainly be bland & a waste of my time. I'm so glad I didn't! My family has proclaimed this their new favorite enchilada recipe. 

Easy Enchiladas
(taken from

Flour or wheat tortillas (I used wheat)
1 lb. ground beef or chicken
1 can green or red enchilada sauce (I used red)
1 pkg cream cheese
1 pkg shredded cheese (I used Kroger brand Mexican blend shredded cheese)

Melt cream cheese in microwave until very soft. Add half of can of enchilada sauce to cream cheese. Reserve remainder of enchilada sauce. 

Cook beef or chicken & add to mixture.

(The recipe calls for heating tortillas in microwave before filling. I skipped this step since the ones I had were easily rolled & going into the oven to heat up anyway. You may need to do this if your tortillas are too stiff to roll up without tearing)

Place mixture in tortillas & wrap.  Place enchiladas in baking dish. 

Pour shredded cheese & remaining sauce over top.

Bake 20 min. or until hot at 325 degrees.
