1 tbsp vegetable oil plus additional for frying tortillas

1/2 c onion finely diced

1 jalapeño minced and seeds removed

4 cloves garlic minced

1 lb 93/7 lean ground beef

1 c beef broth low sodium

2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce good quality

2 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp cilantro chopped

12 corn tortillas

16 oz Colby-jack cheese shredded

sour cream for serving


Start by heating one tablespoon of oil in a skillet, over medium-low heat.

Next add the onion and minced jalapeño to the skillet. Sauté them until they become softened which usually takes around 2 to 3 minutes.

After that stir in the garlic. Let it cook for an additional minute.

Once you’ve done that increase the heat. Add the ground beef to the skillet. Cook it until it turns brown.

Now it’s time to pour in the beef broth tomato sauce, chili powder, sugar, cumin, salt and pepper. Give everything a stir. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile in another skillet with oil lightly fry the corn tortillas until they become pliable.

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a baking dish measuring around 9×13 inches (22×33 cm).

Spread half a cup of sauce on the bottom of the greased baking dish.

Now comes assembling time! Fill each tortilla with some of that beef mixture along with some cheese. Roll them up tightly. Place them seam-side down in the baking dish.

Pour any remaining sauce over the enchiladas. Sprinkle some cheese on top.

Cover everything with foil. Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 20 to 30 minutes or until everything is heated through and bubbly.

Once ready garnish your enchiladas with cilantro. Serve them alongside some sour cream, for added deliciousness!
