Cinco de Mayo Recipes Including Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas plus Chipotle Recipes

Pictured above:  Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas


  • 1 pound lean ground beef  (hormone free, if possible)
  • 1/2 – 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1  14-ounce (medium-size) can Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce, Medium Red (or if you like lots of sauce like us, then 1 large can or 2 small cans)
  • 1 package corn tortillas
  • 1 package shredded sharp cheddar cheese, reduced fat


Cook chopped onion and ground beef until no pink is left in the meat.  Warm tortillas either briefly in the microwave (this can be done by inverting a dinner plate on top of another one to make a “tortilla warmer”) or in a skillet so they will roll without breaking.  Place ground beef/onion mixture in a line down the middle of a tortilla and spoon a couple of tablespoons of enchilada sauce over it.  Roll to make tortilla and place in casserole dish.  Repeat until all the meat mixture is used up.  Pour remaining sauce evenly over tortillas and top with shredded cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
