  • Chopped lettuce
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
  • Tortilla chips (for serving alongside the sanchiladas)
  • Chopped cilantro and scallions (for garnishing, if desired)


  1. Cooking the Beef:
    • In a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef with granulated onion and garlic until fully cooked; drain any accumulated fats.
  2. Preparing the Sanchilada Mixture:
    • Stir one can of enchilada sauce into the ground beef, cooking until the mixture is hot throughout. Remove from heat.
  3. Assembling the Sanchiladas:
    • Place a warm tortilla on a work surface.
    • Spread one-fourth of the beef mixture down the center of the tortilla.
    • Top with cheese and lettuce as desired.
  4. Sour Cream Drizzle:
    • In a small bowl, combine sour cream with 1/4 cup of red enchilada sauce.
    • Place the mixture in a sandwich bag, snip one corner, and drizzle it over the beef filling.
  5. Rolling and Baking:
    • Roll the tortilla around the beef filling and place it in a greased baking dish.
    • Repeat for the remaining sanchiladas.
    • Pour enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Garnish with scallions or cilantro.
  6. Heating and Serving:
    • Heat the sanchiladas in the microwave until heated throughout.
    • Serve alongside tortilla chips and enjoy immediately.


  • Warm tortillas before rolling for easier handling.
  • Experiment with different ground meats or green enchilada sauce for variety.
  • Adjust spiciness by using hot red enchilada sauce or adding red pepper flakes to the mild sauce.
