  1. I made this for a sorority meeting. Everyone loved it. 2 Lbs ground beef and 1 can enchilada sauce. I couldnt add onions,

  2. Sounds nice, how do you make the enchilada sauce though?

    • In the recipe itself the words enchilada sauce are in blue. Click those words. It is a link to the enchilada sauce recipe. =)

  3. I believe you buy it already made.

  4. The best topping for baked potatoes, makes a complete meal.

  5. Tried it with Hatch Green Enchilada sauce, medium, absolutely fantastic!

  6. Thanks Robyn! AND yes Tess, please do share!

  7. O I so want to try this

  8. Wondering how this would work in a crock pot? Cook beef, garlic, onions… Then mix in crockpot? Be nice to keep it warm for a pot luck situation!

    • I was just thinking the same thing as I read the recipe. Sounds like a great potluck dish if it works well in the crock pot.

  10. Hi Robyn

    Did you use a combination of monterey and cheddar cheese.

  11. Wow, this looks SOOO yummy! Where’d you get that super awesome deep dish cast iron pan?

  12. You said that montery jack or cheddar could be used. Which cheese did you use when you made the dish that’s shown above? If you used cheddar, was it sharp or mild?

  13. is good with Velveeta cheese too

  14. I added 1/2 a can of rotfl to this, a dash of cumin salt and pepper, plus garlic powder and about a quarter package of taco seasoning. Topped it with Mexican cheese. Put it in the crockpot for a gathering of friends. Really good.

  15. What size pan do you use to bake it in?

  16. This was a tasty, easy recipe. I added some rotel with chilies and lots of taco toppings. I found it helped to let the dip congeal a little while after cooking. Thanks for sharing!

  17. thanks for posting this great recipe, we tried it last weekend.

  18. Just made this and it is very yummy I also added a can of diced green chiles, cumin and garlic salt.

  19. How many recipes of this would you recommend for a group of 50?

    • Hi Katrina,
      Each recipe makes around 8 servings, depending on the serving sizes people eat. So if you go by this, you’d want to make 4 recipes. If you are serving other heavy appetizers with it, you might not need to make 4 of them. It’s delicious and I hope you and your group enjoy it as much as my family does! Thanks!

  20. I made the sauce this afternoon with intention of using it in the Enchalada dip. It’s quite tasty. I’m making it for a party this Saturday. Will let you know how it goes

  21. Has anyone made this in a crock pot? Did it turn out?did you double or triple it.

  22. I made this recipe three times when my husband and I were living in the Middle East. It’s soo good. I followed the recipe except for one thing. I used smoked meat, which I smoked myself. OMG. It took it to a whole new level. So, so good. By the way, one time, I used smoked camel meat. Yes, camel meat. (It’s white meat, just like lean pork, but has the texture of beef.) I asked my husband to take some to his Arab work colleague, who shared it with his wife, and both loved it. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

  23. It is quick and easy but enjoyed by everyone.
