I seriously could eat Mexican food every single night. My husband loves it too, as do two of my kids.
However, two of my children LOVE pasta. I would say they are part Italian, but they’re not.
This dinner made everyone happy! The pasta lovers enjoyed the noodles, and the Mexican lovers enjoyed the spicy sauce! Don’t you love when a single meal can please everyone?
This recipe takes a little extra work because you have to boil your lasagna noodles first. But, you can make this dish in the morning and cook it at dinner time. You can also make it the night before…I get how busy you all are!!
Now, if only my family could agree on their favorite cookie…
How to make Beef Enchilada Roll Ups
First start by cooking your lasagna noodles according to the package directions. Once cooked, lay them flat on large sheets of parchment paper! Let cool while you prepare the filling.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large skillet, brown ground beef until fully cooked. Drain and return to skillet. Add enchilada sauce, cuming, and mozzarella cheese. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine softened cream cheese with cumin. Set aside.
Pour half a can of red enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 13×9 baking dish.
Using a small offset spatula, spread cream cheese mixture over lasagna noodles, using all the cheese until they are evenly coated.
Top noodles with ground beef mixture. Roll up each lasagna noodle (don’t worry if some falls out) and place seam side down in prepared baking dish.
Repeat until all 15 noodles are in the dish. Spoon leftover meat that feel out onto the noodles. Top with remaining half can of enchilada sauce and extra cheese.
Cover with foil, bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and top with remaining cheese. Bake uncovered for 5 more minutes until cheese is melted.
Can Enchilada Roll Ups be frozen?
Yes! Today’s recipe makes a great freezer meal. 15 roll ups might be a lot for your family. Often times I double the recipe so that I’m working once and I can get three dinners out of this when doubled!
Once you have all the rollups prepped, place them in an airtight container.
