Easy Gluten-Free Beef and Cheese Enchiladas. You are going to love how easy these gluten-free beef and cheese enchiladas are to make! Made with homemade taco seasoning and mild red enchilada sauce.
Every week we have Taco Tuesday night (yes we are HUGE Lego Movie fans).
I try and mix it up and have a few different ways we eat Mexican meals. My husband’s favorite Mexican meal at home is gluten-free beef and cheese enchiladas.
Enchiladas are a perfect way to eat Mexican gluten-free. The baking of the meat and cheese filled corn tortillas really remind us of the softness of flour tortillas.
Homemade Gluten-Free Taco Seasoning
Being gluten-free I make my own taco meat seasoning. It’s so much healthier not having any extra additives (like MSG). I bet you already have the spices in your pantry.
Red Enchilada Sauce
I also use a premade mild red enchilada sauce. Truthfully I have never tried to make my own.
A technique I learned while living in New Mexico was to dip the corn tortilla in the enchilada sauce before you add the filling. Doing this step helps the corn tortilla stay moist and not crack when rolling.
These gluten-free beef enchiladas are baked in a 9 x 13 glass pan for 25 minutes.
Super easy, super yummy!
These gluten-free beef and cheese enchiladas will spice up your next Mexican food night.
