Cheesy Beef Enchiladas
Prep time: 10-15 minutes Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
1 lb lean ground beef (93/7)
12 oz. frozen riced cauliflower
1-15 oz can black beans
1-15 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1-10 oz bag frozen chopped peppers and onions
1-28 oz can red enchilada sauce (divided into thirds)
2-1 oz packages taco seasoning
4 oz cream cheese
12 low carb flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large skillet cook ground beef. While ground beef is cooking, place riced cauliflower in the microwave to cook according to instructions on the package. Open all cans and rinse and drain black beans.
When ground beef is finished cooking, drain excess grease and return beef to the same skillet on medium-high heat. Add the riced cauliflower, black beans, diced tomatoes, frozen peppers and onions, ⅓ of the enchilada sauce, and taco seasoning.
Stir until evenly combined and add in the cream cheese. Occasionally stir mixture for another 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour ⅓ of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of a large baking dish. Lay out your flour tortillas and when your filling is done, portion it out onto each flour tortilla, roll up and lay into the baking dish. When all of your tortillas have been filled, top with remaining ⅓ of sauce and shredded cheese.
Bake uncovered for 10-15 minutes in the oven while you clean-up!
