Beef Enchiladas

Here is the meal I used for my freezer meal group. It is a Hansen family favorite.


2 pounds hamburger
1 package Lipton onion soup
Corn tortillas
Cheese – mozzarella & cheddar

Sauce Ingredients
1/3 cup shortening
½ cup flour
1 can Nalley’s Big Chunk Chili (no beans)
3 Tablespoons chili powder
1 can enchilada sauce
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 can beef broth
1 package Lipton onion soup
2 Tablespoons sugar

Brown hamburger and mix in Lipton onion soup mix. Take off heat and set aside. In separate pot (on stove), melt shortening and add in flour, chili, and chili powder. Off heat add enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, beef broth, Lipton onion soup, sugar and salt (to taste). Put sauce back on heat and thicken.

Building the enchiladas
Warm the tortillas in the microwave until they start to curl. Pour in sauce in bottom of pan. Take a tortilla – add meat & cheese. Roll and place in pan. Continue rolling enchiladas until pan is full. Pour sauce over top of enchiladas – completely covering all enchiladas and add cheese.

To Bake
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes
If frozen, a bit longer

Recipe will make either 2 – 9X13 pans or 4 – 8X8 pans
