How to Make Beef Enchiladas

This easy beef enchiladas recipe is so much simpler than you might think! It does take some time to cook the beef, but it’s well worth it in the end. Cook the beef, make the enchiladas, bake, and done!

  1. Season the roast with salt & pepper, then set it aside.
  2. Heat oil in a dutch oven, then add in the onion and saute for 4-5 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook another 30 seconds, then transfer the mixture to a plate.
  3. Now cook the beef in the same dutch oven. Sear the roast for about 4-5 minutes on each side. Then sprinkle it with taco seasoning, chili powder, and cumin, and pour the beer in the pot around the beef. Cover it with a lid and roast it in the oven at 300°F for 3-4 hours.
  4. When the beef is done cooking, shred it up using two forks.
  5. Now set the oven to 350°F and prepare your casserole dishes.
  6. Spread 1/2 cup of the picante sauce over the bottom of the casserole dish.
  7. Assemble the beef enchiladas by filling each tortilla with shredded beef, sour cream, picante sauce, sauteed onion, garlic, and shredded cheese. Roll them up tightly and place them into the casserole dish.
  8. Spread the rest of the sauce over the enchiladas, cover the dish with foil, and bake 15 minutes.
  9. Remove the foil, sprinkle them with cheese, and then bake another 10-15 minutes.

When they’re done cooking, top them with all your favorite ingredients (tomatoes, guacamole, more sour cream, etc) and serve hot.

To help speed up the process, you can prepare the shredded beef up to a couple of days ahead of time. Cook the roast according to instructions, shred, and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make the shredded beef enchiladas.
