Skillet Enchiladas

Oh, friends.  This is good stuff here!  And with summer approaching, you’ll be happy to know the title says it all:  Skillet Enchiladas.  No oven necessary!

Skillet Enchiladas

  • 1 lb. hamburger
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup (I make my own)
  • 1 (10 oz.) can enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies
  • 1-2 cans (I use about 2 cups homemade) refried beans
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 8-10 flour tortillas (I’m sure corn tortillas would work, we just prefer flour)
  • 2 1/2 c. shredded cheddar or Mexican Blend cheese

In the largest skillet you have 😉 , brown the hamburger and onion.  Remove 1/2 of the hamburger/onion mixture (set aside).  Stir in soup, enchilada sauce, milk, and chilies.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While the sauce is simmering, grab another skillet to make the filling.  Warm reserved hamburger with refried beans, water, and taco seasoning.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat.  Simmer 5 minutes.  (Simmer longer if too thin, add more water if too thick.)

In each tortilla, spread about 1/4 c. beef/bean mixture and 1/4 c. cheese.  Roll up; place seam side down on the meat sauce in the large skillet.  Sprinkle all with cheese.  Cover and cook until cheese is melted.

*** We love the taste and frugality of refried beans in our enchiladas.  If your family is anti-beans, feel free to omit them, using another pound of beef instead.

  1. These look great! I’ve been looking for an enchilada recipe, so I’m bookmarking this one. Thanks 🙂

  2. I bought the fixins for chimichangas today, but this is sure catching my eye! :>) I also found a recipe for enchilada sauce, which I’m hoping is nearly as good as the canned stuff that I adore but is so not good for us.

    Re: beans – I have very, very good luck pureeing them if I don’t want to feel them. (I think for a lot of people it’s more of a texture thing than a taste thing.) For my chili, I puree all the beans and it really thickens it (YUM). Either run them through the food processor OR mash with a potato masher then thin the mixture with extra water and see if you can sneak the beans by the bean haters.

    PS – still laughing about the burp comment!

  3. Sounds delish – even better if you make your own enchilada sauce!

    This is the one I make – only problem with it is once you make it you will not go back, so yum.

  4. These look wonderful! I might even give them a try tonight, so it’s perfect timing!

    I passed a “Sweet Blog” award on to you today. Don’t feel obligated to do anything more than feel appreciated. 🙂 I really do enjoy your blog!

  5. I would have never thought about making enchiladas in a skillet – great idea!

  6. This looks really good!! I think I’m putting them on our menu for next week.

  7. Mmmm… sounds great! I think I need a bigger skillet….

  8. Love that these can be made on top of the stove! 😀 Great for those warmer days that are around the corner!!

    Have a great day, Amy!

  9. Yum!
    This Texas girl is definitely gonna give these a try!
    Thanks for sharing!

  10. Have you ever tried a chicken version of these? I’m loving that they can be made in a cast iron skillet. Always looking for easy cast iron skillet recipes. Love cooking with mine & am wanting to upgrade to a 20″ to better accommodate my hungry brood 😉

    • I have not. That silly cow we keep in our deep freezer just beckons… 😉 I don’t know why it wouldn’t work, though! Love my cast iron!
