Gluten Free Enchiladas

Making enchiladas gluten free is pretty easy.  You just need to check the labels of the ingredients that you use.  Some packaged corn tortillas contain gluten usually listed as modified food starch, so read the labels carefully.  I typically use Mission brand yellow corn tortillas.  The other item to be careful with is the taco seasoning.  I try to avoid the high salt content of prepared seasoning mixes, so I typically season my meat with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime seasoning.  You'll also need to check the enchilada sauce since many canned enchilada sauces contain gluten.  I used Rosarita brand enchilada sauce. Of course, you can make the tortillas and enchilada sauce from scratch, but really who has time when you have small children.

Making the Meat Filling

Brown 1 lb of ground beef along with a small chopped onion and peppers.  I used some frozen red and yellow peppers from last summer.  Once the ground beef is cooked thoroughly, then mix in a can of drained black beans and season with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime to taste.

Prepare Enchiladas

Warm the corn tortillas in a small skillet.  Place filling on warm tortilla and roll it up.  I typically make about 12 enchiladas in a large rectangle baking dish.  Cover enchiladas with a can of enchilada sauce and shredded cheese.


Bake enchiladas for approximately 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
