With just one pound of ground beef and 20 minutes of prep time, you can have a pleases-all-customers dinner for five on the table in less than an hour with this easy enchilada recipe. Transform five simple ingredients into this cheesy, hearty meal, with a little help from Betty
A true red enchilada sauce starts with a little puréed tomato and broth that’s heavily seasoned with finely chopped garlic, onion, oregano, basil, cumin, and lots of ground red ancho (dried ripened poblano chiles) powder. Green enchilada sauce is all about roasted green chiles and tomatillos and is generally much hotter.
Create a toppings buffet with a bowl of spicy green salsa verde and a smoky tomato salsa, lots of torn fresh cilantro, chopped tomatoes, green onions, and chopped avocado.
Using ground chicken or turkey instead of ground beef would make a good variation for saucy enchiladas. Turkey in particular is a favorite in the southwest.
