“Recipe I got from a Taco Bell dinner and now do from scratch. Much like enchiladas and very good. The recipe calls for ground beef, but I've used canned chicken, and also calls for cheddar cheese, but any cheese you prefer can be used. I've also started using diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, cilantro, and jalapenos to top it with.”
8 single tortillas servings

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 (14 ounce) can refried beans
  • 1 (14 ounce) can enchilada sauce
  • shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Brown the ground beef and drain off the fat. If using chicken, just throw the taco seasoning with the chicken into a skillet. Follow the taco seasoning directions for the rest of this preparation.
  3. Warm the tortillas in the microwave, covered with a damp paper towel, for 1 minute.
  4. Open the can of beans and place 1 tablespoon (or more, if desired) down the middle of the tortilla. Spoon 2 tablespoons (or more, if desired) of the beef or chicken on top of the beans. Roll the tortilla up, the beans and protein lengthwise, leaving both ends open. Continue until all tortillas are used.
  5. Place rolled tortillas in a 13"x9" baking dish. I usually place the "seam" side down. Open the enchilada sauce and pour oven the rolled tortillas and top with as much cheese as desired. Place in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Top with any garnishes desired.
