Easy Ground Beef Recipe: This Beef & Bean Enchilada Casserole Recipe Is Dang Delicious

If you love a good taco casserole, then this enchilada casserole with meat, beans, cheese and spiked with garlic-laced sour cream is sure to be put in the recipe rotation. To cut out some calories, only use half a pound of ground beef, low-fat sour cream and low-fat cheese. You could also use ground turkey.

Cuisine: Mexican
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Servings: 8


  • optional garnishes: chopped fresh cilantro, sliced avocado, guacamole, chopped tomato, salsa

Here's how to make it:

Combine the sour cream, flour and garlic powder. Set aside. (Don't dirty a bowl and mix this in the container the sour cream comes in.)

Brown the ground beef and onion until meat is cooked through. Drain off fat. Add the ground cumin, chili powder, pinto beans and green chiles with their liquid. Turn off heat.

Put half of the tortillas on the bottom of a rectangular casserole dish.

Top with half of the meat and bean mixture.

Dollop half of the sour cream mixture over the top. Gently smooth to cover the meat.

Pour half of the enchilada sauce over the top.

Repeat layers.

Sprinkle with the shredded cheese. Cover with foil and bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 30 minutes, or until bubbly and cheese has melted. Serve with optional garnishes.
