  • Cook and stir ground beef, onion, 1 can green chiles, and taco seasoning in a large skillet over medium-high heat until meat is browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain excess fat.

  • Stir together sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and 1 can green chiles in a saucepan over medium-low heat until warm, about 10 minutes.

  • Pour about half of warmed sour cream mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Spoon ground beef mixture in the center of a tortilla. Roll tortillas and place on top of sour cream mixture in the 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour remaining sour cream mixture over tortillas and top with Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbling, about 35 minutes.

  • Top enchiladas with lettuce, tomatoes, olives.

Cook's Note:

You can adjust the green chilies to taste and use different types of cheese and toppings. Kids love this.

My mom (Iowa native) makes this. It's one of my favorite mom dishes. Like Areena noted, it's better if you put a little of the soup mixture and some cheese inside the tortilla, too. Again, this is not intended to be real Mexican, hence the title. ;-) Read More

I never rate a recipe without trying it first but I'm making an exception because one of my friends makes a casserole exactly like this and it's delicious. In fact I found this recipe while searching by ingredients because I lost the recipe my friend gave me. It's not gourmet by any stretch and I usually avoid processed foods like canned soup but this is good easy comfort food for a crowd. Just don't expect it to taste like Mexican enchiladas; different thing altogether. The only thing my friend does differently is mixing in some of the sauce with the ground beef filling & adding a little cheese on the inside as well. I add jalepenos but that's my thing. I think you'll like it if you try it. Read More

Great alternative to tomato-based versions. My husband has horrible acid reflux but loves Mexican. This did not bother his stomach a bit. Satisfied the whole family. Served lettuce tomato & other toppings on the side so everyone could build it their way. Read More

These are really good. I made one pan according to the recipe except with cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken and I made one pan gluten free with corn tortillas and spicy taco seasoning and double the green chilies. I would recommend making 10 flour tortillas because that is how they come in a pack and then you would get more sauce/cheese on each one instead of squishing 12 roll ups in one pan. Read More

This was darn tasty! Full disclosure I'm a vegetarian so I used Gardein crumbles and cream of mushroom soup. Other than that I didn't make any changes. Kids loved it! Read More
