Oven Baked Burrito ‘Chiladas

 

In this post I’ll be sharing an easy recipe for Oven Baked Burrito ‘Chiladas.

This is a delicious recipe and perfect for those busy weeknight meals! It is versatile as well and can be adjusted to use the ingredients that you have on hand.

In case you might be wondering what a burrito ‘chilada is….it’s my version of smothered burritos.

When I originally posted this recipe back in 2016, it quickly became the most popular recipe on the blog and held the number one spot for a year.

I was introduced to this dish many years ago from a dear friend who made wonderful smothered burritos. These burrito ‘chiladas are wonderful for your home cooked Mexican cuisine dinners and for Cinco de Mayo!

Ingredients:

  • A pound of Ground Beef (Chicken is good too)
  • Onion, diced
  • Bell Pepper, diced (color of your choice)
  • A Packet of Taco Seasoning
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 1 c Cheese, grated (I used cheddar)
  • Sliced Black Olives (optional)
  • 1 large can Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 can mild Rotel
  • Flour or Corn Tortilla Wraps

As I mentioned, this recipe can easily be adjusted. If you don’t have sliced black olives on hand then just leave them out.

Want to add in some refried beans, go ahead, or even Spanish style rice would be delicious.

Baked Burrito Enchiladas

In a large skillet brown the ground beef then add the onions and peppers and cook until tender. Next, add the Rotel. Add taco seasoning and water. Stir to combine everything together and simmer until water cooks out and sauce thickens.

Add enough of the enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large baking dish. Spoon mixture into tortilla shell, add a little cheese, fold and tuck ends rolling up. Place into a baking dish.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top with black olives. Cover with the remaining enchilada sauce.

Bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce is hot and bubbly. Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired.

These sound really good. I make my own enchilada sauce. I would add a little kick to it with some chopped jalapeños a d use pepper jack cheese. Can't wait to try them.

Very good. Used a 9x13 baking dish. Added green onions to top. Increased the cheese amount to almost 1# of Mexican cheese (3 cheeses, shredded). Also used the Rotel tomatoes with Serrano peppers instead of the plain Rotel. Made 6 large enchiladas. Will definitely make again.

If I was doing shredded chicken, would you make the chicken in the crockpot or oven and which ingredients with just the chicken prep?

Danelle, You can prepare the chicken in any way that is easiest for you. It can be cut into small pieces and cooked in a skillet. A Crock Pot is a great option and then you can just shred the chicken. You'll want to season the chicken just like you would ground beef for the burritos, usually with a taco seasoning.
