Simple Enchilada’s

One store-bought convenience food that  my husband can eat some of  is Campbell’s Soup and since I haven’t mastered the art of making my own cream soup taste very good yet, I rely on Campbell’s to “cream” things for me.  Yesterday’s Sunday Dinner was simple Enchilada’s using the leftovers from the previous day’s tacos and a little help from the Campbell’s company!

Here’s the recipe:

1 lb (0r so) of ground beef or turkey or pork) browned w/ onion in it

1 can cream of something soup (mushroom, chicken, or celery are best)

1 heaping Tbl refried beans (optional)

8-10 flour tortillas (or soft corn)

Shredded cheese


Shredded or chopped lettuce

Taco Sauce


Sour Cream


Combine the meat, soup (undiluted), and beans in a bowl.  Mix this well to “hide” the beans from your picky eaters who claim they don’t eat beans.  Set this aside. 

Warm your tortillas in the microwave or on the stove until they are soft and pliable.  Divide the meat mix among the tortillas and roll up.  You don’t have to roll burrito style unless you have the time.  Just place a scoop of the meat towards one end, pull up the end over the meat and roll.  Place these in a 9×13 greased pan, snugly fit into the pan.  Cover the pan with foil and bake in a 400^ oven until heated through.   (My meat was leftover and cold and it took about 30 min.  If your meat is hot, maybe 15-20 min).  Sprinkle your desired amount of cheese on top and return to the oven, uncovered.  Bake an additional 5 min or so to melt the cheese.  Serve these with your family’s choice of toppings listed above (to put on top) and a knife and fork.

True enchiladas (sometimes called “wet burritos”) are often baked with a tomato based “enchilada sauce” that you can buy or you can dilute a small can of tomato sauce with taco sauce.  If you want to do this, you would pour this on after the roll-ups are heated through but before the cheese.  Top this sauce with the cheese and return to oven to melt the cheese.
