Ain't Got Not Time EnchiladasSometimes I have a hard time pronouncing words correctly.  The list includes “wolves”, “brewery”,”antenna” and apparently “enchiladas”.

My BBF and I got into a long discussion one day about how I pronounce enchiladas incorrectly as “anch-iladas” and she said it was “inch-iladas”. Later in the day I consulted my Spanish teacher mother-in-law who confirmed I was saying it correctly (WIN!). However when I ask Google to pronounce it (which has to be correct)- I’m not even close.  Lucky for you this is a written blog post so you don’t have to hear me say it wrong as long as I spell it right.

Moving right along, here is how you can make your own quick and easy, Ain’t Got Not Time Enchiladas yourself!  If you have a hard time with the word just tell your family your having Mexican food for dinner.


  • 1 Pkg- Southwest Corn and Black Bean Frozen Mix (You could also just use a frozen corn, peppers and canned black beans).
  • 1 lb Ground Beef, Steak or Chicken
  • Flour Tortillas- Enough to feed your group
  • 1-2 cups- Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • 1 Package- FRONTERA RED CHILE Enchilada Sauce (You could use any Enchilada sauce or brand you like, I just really, really like this one).
  • Baking Dish

Before you get started, go ahead pour your enchilada sauce into a bowl that you can easily dip your enchilada wrap into before you place it into your baking dish.  Go ahead and put your baking dish beside your bowl of sauce so you are ready to go once you start wrapping and rolling!

Step 4: Place your tortillas on a plate, layering them with a moist paper towel in-between each one.  Heat for in microwave for about 15 seconds.  This will steam your tortilla’s making them more pliable, easier to fill and less likely to tear when you fold them up.

Step 5: Spoon the mixture into the center of your tortilla’s one at a time being sure to not overfill so you can fold the tortilla easily.  (If I have left over filling I’ll save it and use on tacos or taco salads for lunch or dinner another night.)

Step 7: Holding the middle together as pictured above, try and use your thumbs to lift and fold the back side of the wrap forward.  Tuck it in and keep rolling it forward until it’s made a nice tiny burrito looking wrap.

This method should keep your ingredients inside your wrap.  Some people choose to leave the sides open so it’s okay if they won’t stay closed or you don’t won’t to bother trying to be a pro tortilla wrapper.Ain't Got No Time Enchiladas Roll Up
