Recipe time!!!! Pioneer Woman style or as I like to call her P-Dub!! I love making enchiladas around here but for a reason I don’t know I have never made beef before! After watching her show I was inspired to make these and they were So good!!!


  • 1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon All-purpose Flour
  • 1 can (28 Ounce) Enchilada Or Red Sauce
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Chopped Cilantro
  • 1-1/2 pound Ground Beef
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Finely Diced
  • 2 cans (4 Ounce) Diced Green Chilies
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 10 whole (to 14) Corn Tortillas
  • 1/2 cup Canola Oil
  • 3 cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Black Olives
  • 1 cup Chopped Green Onions
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Cilantro

 Step #1 – The Sauce
In a large saucepan over medium heat, add oil and flour and whisk together to make a paste, cooking for one minute. Pour in the red sauce, chicken broth, cilantro, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30-45 minutes.

TIP!!!!! I didn’t “dunk” the tortillas instead I poured 1/2 the sauce into the bottom of my baking dish!

Step #2 – The Meat
Brown the meat with onions in a skillet. Drain off fat. Stir in 2 cans diced green chilies and seasoned salt. Set aside

I skipped Step 3 of “frying” the tortillas so if you want to add that step back in check out her recipe online!

 Step #4 – Assembly
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour ½ cup red sauce in bottom of baking pan. Spread to even out. Dip each tortilla into red sauce, then remove to work surface. Spoon meat, a little grated cheese, a little black olives, and green onions in the center of tortilla. Roll up and place, seam down, in baking pan. Repeat until pan is filled. Pour extra red sauce over enchiladas. Top with remaining cheddar cheese.

 Bake at 350 for 20 minutes!!!!! I did a 1/2 order and it made 5 and they were so good!

 TIP!!!! I poured the other 1/2 of the red sauce on top of the enchiladas and I think it gave me the same finished product if I had dunked them!

 We loved it……we had a little late September Cinco deMayo on our patio!!!!

    This recipe is so good, but it's so much work! Ugh, I don't make it that often because it does have so many steps!
