What do you fix for dinner when you have run out of ideas and nothing sounds appetizing? The other day I threw something together and hoped for the best. I must admit, I thought it was pretty tasty. I’m calling it Deconstructed Enchiladas. Give it a try and let us know in the comments.
- 1lb ground beef
- 1 can (10 oz) enchilada sauce
- 1 can (15 oz) white or black beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1 cup cooked jasmine rice (optional)
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 flour tortillas
- 1-2 cups shredded taco or cheddar cheese
Brown ground beef in large skillet. Stir in enchilada sauce, beans, cooked rice, onion powder, cumin, and chili powder and heat through.
Pour into a lightly greased casserole dish or 9×9 baking dish. Top with desired amount of cheese.
Bake uncovered in a 350⁰ oven for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly and cheese browns.
I served these with fried tortilla slices. A healthier option would be to bake them if that’s a concern for you.
To fry the tortillas, cut them in eight pie shaped wedges. Place them in a pan with about ½ inch of hot cooking oil and fry until golden brown. They will puff up like pillows. You can avoid this by piercing them with a fork before you cook them. Drain on paper towel.
Serve with salsa, sour cream, avocado or guacamole. I only had salsa and cream cheese, but I kept thinking how good it would taste with some sliced avocado.
