Cream Cheese Beef Enchiladas

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 8


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups mild salsa divided
  • 1 Tablespoon low-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cups shredded colby-jack cheese divided
  • 8 8-inch flour tortillas (sometimes I use corn tortillas instead. Both are delicious)
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced


  • Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, cook and crumble ground beef over medium-high heat until browned. Drain any grease. Add cream cheese, 1/2 cup salsa, taco seasoning, chili powder, cumin and water. Bring to a small boil, then reduce heat to low and cook 5 more minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove skillet from heat.
  • Spread 1/2 cup salsa in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Place 1/3 cup filling onto each tortilla and one tablespoon cheese. Roll up and then place side by side in baking dish.
  • Pour remaining salsa over enchiladas, spreading evenly to coat all of them. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese all over the tops.
  • Bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve with sliced green onion, more salsa and any other toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
