  • Cook and stir the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until meat is browned and crumbly. Drain the grease from the beef, and add the salsa con queso to the skillet, stirring to mix well. Place about 2 tablespoons of the beef mixture down the center of each tortilla, roll the tortillas, and place them seam side down on top of the salsa in the baking dish. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the enchiladas.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese is browned and the enchiladas are hot and bubbling.

Editor's Note

You can make this recipe with cheese, ground, or shredded chicken, steak, or shredded beef instead of ground beef.

Quick and easy. My husband prefers these to the "real" thing. The only thing I do differently is to use enchilada sauce (canned) instead of salsa. Read More

This was a good idea, but there is something wrong with the recipe measurements because it didn't turn out right for me. I think it was supposed to be 2 lbs. ground beef instead of 1. I only got 11 small enchiladas. There is no way 1 lb. of ground beef goes with 32 oz. salsa and 20 tortillas. Read More

I liked this recipe because it was easy to make and very quick- but for whatever reason when following the original recipe it only yielded eight enchiladas. My husband and I both noticed that the pound of ground beef seemed a bit small for a pound, so perhaps that's the issue- all and all I really liked this recipe. Read More

This is a great recipe except it was too tomato tasting so I mixed a half of one of the jars of salsa with one can of cream of chicken soup used half of that in the chicken stuffing not hamburger then rolled and placed on top of salsa in pan. I used rest of half and half mixture on the top covered with foil baked 20 minutes then uncovered topped with cheese and finished baking. Read More

This was really good but you don't need to put two jars of slasa on the bottom of the baking dish. I only got 8 burrito sized enchiladas out of this too. I will make this again very easy very fast and very good!!!!!! Read More

I tried this recipe for the first time tonight and absolutely loved it! It is amazingly easy to make and the outcome was amazing. I did use about 1.5 lbs of hamburger and a 23 oz jar of queso, along with one 23 oz jar of salsa for the bottom layer. I used twice the meat per tortilla than the recipe called for, and it made the enchiladas very filling. Ten fit perfectly in my baking dish! I will definitely use this recipe again! Read More

I thought my hubby was going to keel over he ate so much:-) He absolutely LOVED this! I enjoyed it but not as much as he did...think I might try it with chicken next time. It is a very easy dish that we'll put on regular rotation! I also added a can of drained rotel tomatoes. Fabulous! Read More

I used enchilada sauce instead of salsa and poured the second can over top before adding the cheese. I also used taco meat with about half a can of black beans (drained) and half a small can of diced jalapeño (also drained.) Very happy with the result! And this was very easy to make. Read More
