Who doesn’t love enchiladas?! Use extra lean ground beef, reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese, fat free or low fat sour cream and no salt added taco seasoning to make it a bit of a healthier version. Serve with a side salad.



  • 1 ½ lbs extra lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (28oz) enchilada sauce, divided
  • cups shredded reduced fat Mexican blend cheese, divided
  • 1 can (4oz) chopped green chilies
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp no salt added taco seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 8 8-inch flour tortillas
  • light sour cream for topping (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until no longer pink, breaking up the pieces while cooking. Add onions and cook for 3 or 5 minutes or until onions are slightly translucent. Reduce heat to medium.
  3. Add 2 cups enchilada sauce, 1 cup cheese, green chilies, garlic, taco seasoning and black pepper. Stir until well combined and cheese is melted.
  4. Divide the mixture evenly between 8 tortillas (approx ½ cup each). Roll up tightly and place seam side down on a greased 9x13-inch non-stick baking dish. Cover enchiladas with remaining sauce and top with remaining cheese. Cover and bake for 18 to 23 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Top with sour cream, if desired.
