Recipe Review: Easy Beef Enchiladas

My husband is not normally a picky eater, except for when it comes to one things...mayo. Anything that looks of taste like mayo he will not eat. I have several enchilada recipes that call for sour cream, but since I have been married to Jon I have not made them. For the past several years I have been on the hunt for a good enchilada recipe that does not call for sour cream.

I found this recipe on an Old El Paso enchilada sauce can. The first time I made it we feel in love with it! It does not have sour cream and it was very easy to change the recipe to make it more points friendly.

Here is the recipe for Easy Beef Enchiladas.

I use 98% lean ground beef, Weight Watchers shredded cheese, and Mission Carb Balance tortillas. I usually make two pans of enchiladas. One is with my lower point ingredients and the other slightly more generous with cheese and regular tortillas. Sometimes I add a cup of cooked rice the the meat mixture to make it go farther



This really is a very easy recipe and can be prepared in just minutes.



This top pan are Jon's and the bottom pan are my Weight Watchers friendly enchiladas.



The finished product! We always have leftovers which I love, because then I do not have to cook everyday of the week. Enjoy!!

This sounds so good. I need new recipes that I can make since my boyfriend is the one that does all the cooking.
Will add to my recipe book.

Sharolyn said...

Made these last night, kinda...Used left over chicken in place of the beef, and added the green peppers and onions. YUMMY! My husband has already requested I make it again when his sister and her boyfriend come to visit in 3 weeks! I did as you did and added more cheese to his share. Thanks again!
Oh yea, first loss at WW recorded...2.25 lbs down!

Living a Changed Life said...

Sharolyn - Those sounds great! I'm glad they were such a hit. Congrats on being down 2.25 lbs!! That's awesome!! Thanks for sharing with me.
