  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish, and pour the salsa into the bottom of the dish. Set aside.
  2. Cook and stir the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until meat is browned and crumbly. Drain the grease from the beef, and add the salsa con queso to the skillet, stirring to mix well. Place about 2 tablespoons of the beef mixture down the center of each tortilla, roll the tortillas, and place them seam side down on top of the salsa in the baking dish. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the enchiladas.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cheese is browned and the enchiladas are hot and bubbling.

Quick and easy. My husband prefers these to the "real" thing. The only thing I do differently is to use enchilada sauce (canned) instead of salsa.

This was a good idea, but there is something wrong with the recipe measurements because it didn't turn out right for me. I think it was supposed to be 2 lbs. ground beef instead of 1. I only got 11 small enchiladas. There is no way 1 lb. of ground beef goes with 32 oz. salsa and 20 tortillas.

I liked this recipe because it was easy to make and very quick- but for whatever reason when following the original recipe it only yielded eight enchiladas. My husband and I both noticed that the pound of ground beef seemed a bit small for a pound, so perhaps that's the issue- all and all I really liked this recipe.

This is a great recipe except it was too tomato tasting so I mixed a half of one of the jars of salsa with one can of cream of chicken soup, used half of that in the chicken stuffing, not hamburger, then rolled and placed on top of salsa in pan. I used rest of half and half mixture on the top, covered with foil, baked 20 minutes then uncovered, topped with cheese and finished baking.

This was really good, but you don't need to put two jars of slasa on the bottom of the baking dish. I only got 8 burrito sized enchiladas out of this too. I will make this again, very easy very fast and very good!!!!!!

I thought my hubby was going to keel over he ate so much :-) He absolutely LOVED this! I enjoyed it, but not as much as he did...think I might try it with chicken next time. It is a very easy dish that we'll put on regular rotation! I also added a can of drained rotel tomatoes. Fabulous!

These were only ok. Definitely not something I would make again however.
