6-Ingredient Ground Beef Enchiladas Recipe: Low-Calorie & Budget-Friendly

Ground beef in an inexpensive ingredient that cooks up quickly and is so versatile. This ground beef enchilada recipe has just six ingredients: ground beef, onion, chopped green chiles, enchilada sauce, reduced-fat cheese and tortillas. These enchiladas are on the table in about 30 minutes! 

Two of these ground beef enchiladas have around 400 calories. Not bad. Just remember, the more toppings you add to this enchilada recipe, the more calories! But if you're not watching your weight, if it's cheat night or if you're the honey badger (and just don't care!), pile on the guacamole and sour cream. This easy ground beef enchilada recipe is a family pleaser.

I am so glad you got the "honey badger" comment. I mentioned it to my daughter and she was worried no one would get it. :-) We keep up! lol I love enchiladas, too. May try these one time with salsa verde instead of red enchilada sauce.
