Tex Mex enchiladas are one of my favorite foods of all time. I always order them at El Mercado on South First Street in Austin, Texas, but I am ashamed to say, I’ve never made them myself. That is until I found this fabulous recipe tutorial by Simply Mama Cooks on YouTube and it looked so delicious and easy, there was nothing stopping me from creating this awesome dish with my own hands for a family dinner surprise. The ingredients were really simple and straightforward and I already had them available in my kitchen.



For Enchiladas:

  • 1 pound of ground beef (you can use 97/3 fat ratio)
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 12 ounces of grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
  • 14 corn tortillas
  • 1/3 cup oil (for softening the corn tortillas)
  • 12 ounces of cheddar cheese (or Colby Jack cheese)

For Enchilada Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 4 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Knorr brand chicken bouillon cube
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) of water (or substitute 2 cups chicken broth or chicken stock)


  • If you use chicken broth adjust your salt and seasoning to taste
  • Bake in a 9 x 13 baking dish
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Bake covered for 20 minutes
  • Then bake uncovered for an additional 10 to 15 minutes


First, you make your enchilada meat mixture according to directions in the video and stuff your softened corn tortillas with the meat and cheese, then roll up and lay side by side in the casserole.
