Do you have recipes that you know and love and make over and over again? This recipe for Sour Cream Enchiladas is one that my mom and I have been making for decades! I believe this recipe was discovered at one of my many 4-H Special Foods events. Once we tried it, we knew we had to make this at home! Over the years, I’ve tweaked it, and made it with other fillings, but keep coming back to this original recipe.
One of the many things that makes this recipe so fantastic, is that it uses simple ingredients that you likely already have in your fridge and pantry. Growing up in rural South Dakota, we didn’t have much exposure to true, authentic Tex-Mex food. But, because we could get some of the basics at the local grocery store, this recipe was always a mainstay!
You’ll start by making the sour cream sauce. It’s very simple, using just butter, flour, broth, sour cream and canned chilies. You’ll add a bit to the bottom of the baking pan, and then reserve the rest for the top of the enchiladas. Next, you’ll make the filling, which is simply ground beef and taco seasoning. Adding some shredded cheese along with the ground beef is always a good idea! 🙂 Once your tortillas are filled with the meat and cheese and placed into the pan, you’ll then pour the rest of the sour cream sauce on top of the enchiladas, and then top with more cheese! Doesn’t it look amazing?!
Bake for a short 20-25 minutes, and you’ll have the most amazing soft, delicious enchiladas! My favorite topping is my Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa, which is awesome with just about any Tex-Mex meal! My Loaded Guacamole is always a nice addition as well!
This makes for a fabulous dinner option any night of the week, and is amazing for a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too! Here’s the recipe for these amazing Sour Cream Enchiladas:
