Spicy Beef and Bean Enchilada Recipe

We love spicy food at our house! We usually have tacos, nachos, or enchiladas about once a week so I thought I’d share my favorite enchilada recipe. It’s super easy to throw together, then you can go get some other work done while it’s baking. Add a side salad and dinner is served.

You can cool off the spices in this dish with a little sour cream or guacamole. Yum!

Beef and Bean Enchiladas

  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • flour tortillas
  • 28 oz can enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 350`F
  2. Brown your ground beef in a skillet, and add the chopped onion. Drain the ground beef, then add the cumin, chili powder, refried beans, about 1/4 of the enchilada sauce, and garlic powder. Mix all the ingredients together on low heat.
  3. Roll two heaping tablespoons of the meat and bean mixture into each flour tortilla.
  4. Place the rolled tortillas into a lightly sprayed 9×13 casserole dish. You should be able to make about 12 enchiladas.
  5. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the top of the rolled up enchiladas and top with two cups of cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake at 350` for 30 to 40 minutes.

Garnish ideas: Sour cream, guacamole, cilantro, or fresh avocado


The leftovers are even delicious!
