How do you make Cheesy Beef Enchiladas?
These enchiladas are easy to make with burrito-sized flour tortillas or you can use a gluten-free alternative such as white corn tortillas.
Once you have your tortillas chosen, then you will want to brown the ground beef. Once your ground beef is fully cooked, you can either add in taco seasoning per the package instructions or you can use this homemade taco seasoning.
After your meat is done, then you will combine your meat, beans, and Rotel to stuff inside your enchiladas. At this point, if you wanted to add more to it like refried beans or other ingredients, you can really customize it.
After this is done, simply place them seam side down into a 9×13 baking dish and coat them with enchilada sauce, chilies, cheese, and then green onion to garnish and bake them up!
Once they come out you will have cheesy goodness that pairs really well with Air Fryer Mexican Street Corn too.
How do you make these gluten-free?
These can easily be made into gluten-free beef enchiladas with a few simple swaps.
First, you can use a gluten-free flour tortilla such as these tortillas from Mission.
Secondly, my personal favorite is to use white corn tortillas. We use these regularly in enchiladas. It’s VERY IMPORTANT to remember that when using these, be sure to heat them up first for 20-30 seconds so that they are pliable.
If you skip this step, they will tear when folding them. If you use white corn tortillas, you will use 16 of them for the plate of enchiladas.
Now it’s time to enjoy dinner!

This is a good recipe except for I omitted the green chilies because Rotel comes with some in them. Also, there was no instruction to cover with aluminum foil and I believe you need to because they came out a bit dry. Maybe last 5 minutes remove it. Corn tortillas tear so very easily even warmed up. I couldn’t roll them tight I had to gently fold them over. I’ll stick with flour tortillas I think. More easily pliable. Only made 12 with corn. Probably because I wasn’t able to tighten them up as much as I would have liked.
I use corn because they are gluten free but flour is much more pliable. I think I have rolled corn tortillas so much I’m used to them now but I do agree flour does roll better.
