Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium skillet over medium high heat, cook the ground beef and onion until beef is evenly browned and onion is tender.

  • Prepare the enchilada sauce according to package directions. Pour 1/4 cup of the sauce into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.

  • On each flour tortilla, place an equal portion of the ground beef mixture and about 1 ounce of Cheddar cheese, reserving at least 1/2 cup of cheese. Then tightly roll the tortillas and place seam side down in the baking dish.

  • Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the enchiladas and sprinkle with the remaining cheese and olives.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and cheese is thoroughly melted.
