Sour Cream Beef Enchiladas
These are by far my favorite in my line of “enchiladas”! I put a short version of these up on my facebook page but I wanted to put these up here so it’s easier to come back too.
Start with browning your beef. Or you could follow my recipe for crockpot tacos (using beef instead of turkey meat) here… Easy Crockpot Tacos. Add a can of rotel & spices to the ground beef or follow the recipe for the Easy Crockpot Tacos.
Get a big 9X13 backing dish. Take a (low carb Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat) tortilla, stuff it full with taco meat and cheese.
Roll up and continue until the pan is full.
Cover with the sour cream sauce that you make in the blender.
Here is the link to the sauce: Creamy Jalapeno Ranch
Sprinkle with cheese.
Add some chopped onions on top or even cilantro (my favorite).
Cover with foil and bake.
Serve this with delicious guacamole or a queso with salad and salsa!!
How yummy does that look? It is so good! This is an S dish if you follow Trim Healthy Mama! The serving size should be 2 enchiladas so pack them full of taco meat and cheese! If you do not want to use the Low Carb tortillas try this as a casserole layered with Dreamfield’s Pasta or Joseph’s Lavash Bread (put meat, cheese, onions, lavash or pasta, salsa, repeat, top with cheese & onions an bake the same as this recipe) or have a gluten allergy try this over spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles! This would even be amazing over cauliflower or broccoli!
Sour Cream Beef Enchiladas
- Cook Time: 25
- Total Time: 25 minutes
- Yield: 8 1x
Awesome low carb sour cream beef enchiladas.
- 2 lbs of ground beef browned
- 1 can of rotel drained
- 1 packages of Low Carb Tortillas Whole Wheat (I use the Carb Balance Whole Wheat Mission Tortillas)
- Taco Seasoning to taste
- 1 small onion chopped
- 2 or more cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1– 8 oz package of cream cheese (I used 1/3 less fat)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup of chicken broth or water
- 1– jalapeno seeded & cored
- 1 handful of cilantro cleaned
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt or to taste
- Brown the ground beef.
- Add taco seasoning and a canned of drained rotel (diced tomatoes and green onions).
- Spray lightly a 9X13 baking dish with cooking spray.
- Take a tortilla, fill with beef & cheese, roll up.
- Continue the above step till pan is full.
- In a blender add cream cheese, sour cream, broth or water, jalapenos, cilantro, garlic & onion powder, & salt.
- Blend well.
- Pour over rolled enchiladas.
- Cover with cheese.
- Top with onions.
- Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese has melted and dish is heated through.
- **Note if you cannot find the lower carb (3 carbs per tortilla), you could also make this as a casserole with out the tortillas, add extra cheese, more veggies & use another form of low carb lavash or pita (toasted) as chips & make an awesome dip! Or put it over spaghetti squash or even the Dreamfield Pasta!

That sounds delicious! I’ve been following THM for a couple of weeks now and found your posts on Facebook. My husband is going to love that I can still make him Mexican style food. I’ll be making these for dinner this week. I look forward to reading and trying some of your other recipes. Thanks for sharing these!
They are super good!! Add some guacamole to it or cheese sauce.. oh my! lol Thank you and congrats on your THM journey!! 🙂

Looks yummy! It’s lunch time and my stomach is growling now for these!
Was wondering if this recipe would freeze well?
I’ve heard from others than said they did freeze well. I haven’t tried it yet because we never have left overs. 🙂
Would these still be THM compliant if I used corn tortillas?
Good questions… they would mostly not be on plan unless they were sprouted corn tortillas but and then it would be a crossover but on plan! 🙂
What would be a good side for these?
I would do a salad! I do serve with a guacamole salad and salsa. But it really is feeling without anything else!
This looks so good. I am new to THM. I can’t wait to try these.
Thank you!! 🙂
I made this twice in two days. Absolutely delicious! I added extra cheese inside the enchilada to make it super!
Oh AWESOME!!! My favorites!!! 🙂
patty shawver says
this is really really great!! thank you mrs criddle
OH you are quite welcome!!!! 🙂
Two seems so small? I’m assuming using the small mission carb balance tortillas. My dh is doing this with me and I can’t see him full after two
I’m sure three would be ok for him! Also, you could layer the tortillas flat on top to make it go further for sure!! It would be more of a casserole but still your would get more! 🙂

Thank you for making your recipes printable.
You are so welcome!!

This recipe looks so yummy! I’m wondering if it’s ok to use ground Turkey instead of beef. My husband and I haven’t had beef in quite a while and we are brand new to THM. Thank you.
This recipe is great! My husband and I both love it!

I made these for Christmas Eve for my whole extended family. They were a hit! Everything I make from Mrs. Criddle has been delicious. One of my go to blogs for recipes.
Peggy Kemper says
i found some sprouted corn tortillas at my local health food store. I am going to try them in this recipe using turkey. Thank you for sharing your recipes and congratulations on your THM journey so far. Your baby is beautiful.
These enchiladas are wonderful! One of our favorites! Can’t wait to work my way through the rest of your recipes. Thank you!
These are amazing! My family loved them!

Excited to try this – it looks delicious!
Ali Schaefer says
These have become a family favorite! So yummy!
My daughter cooked this tonight!! So good!! Thanks for a great recipe!!!
I’m so happy to hear this!!! 🙂
I can’t wait to try these. If I make this as a casserole, when do I put in the sour cream sauce? I do not see it listed in the description for how to make it as a casserole? Thanks so much.
You would want to pour the sauce on the top at the very end!! 🙂
kris barnett says
Would it be ok to use chicken instead of beef in these?? Really in the mood for some chicken (:
This sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing!
Just made these tonight served with a side salad topped with salsa and avocado. They are the best! I feel like I’m cheating but I’m not! I was able to stay within/under my carb limit for the day!! Thank You!
Awesome!!! 🙂 My favorites!
my absolute favorite! I could eat these everyday (but with so many other great recipes, I don’t). THIS one needs to go on THM membersite!
Heavens to Betsy that was delicious!!! Thank you!
Kelley Lindsay says
How much taco seasoning do you use?
This was amazing! I made it exactly as written and the flavors were outstanding! Definitely will make again and again.
Yay sooooo happy to hear that!!
Sorry, I couldn’t figure out where to leave my own comment, so I just hit reply to this one! Question….is the salsa that’s called for in the ingredients list just meant to be used as a condiment while eating, or was I supposed to add it in somewhere in the steps? I did see it come up in the directions. Thanks!!
Yes, to use as a condiment. Here in Texas we put salsa on almost everything. 😉
Alyda Dykstra says
Could I substitute greek yogurt for the sour cream?
yes, you can!
This is one of my family’s favorite THM-friendly meals. I’ve been making it since 2015 and I’m about to make it again. My tummy is already growling in anticipation. Thank you for this goody, Sarah, it’s a classic!
Tania Reguin says
