  • 1 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese Divided
  • 1 1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 lb Ground Beef
  • 1/4 Cup Minced Onion
  • 1 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese Divided
  • 1 1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1/4 Cup Minced Onion
  • 1 Tbsp Cumin
  • 1/2 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 1 Tsp Onion Powder
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Power
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/8 Cup Pickled Jalapeños Optional
  • 1/2 Cup Enchiladas Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Sour Cream


  • Brown the beef with the minced onion. In a cup mix the cumin, chilli powder, onion and garlic powder and salt and pepper with the water. Then pour over the browned ground beef. Let simmer for 5 – 10 minutes or until all the liquid is evaporated. Chop the add the pickled jalapeños. Mix until incorporated.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix 1 1/4 cup of the cheddar and all of the mozzarella cheese. Divide the cheese mixture into 6 then make balls. Place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake @ 400 F for 6-8 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Let cool for 1- 2 minutes. Flip upside down, then place a few spoonfuls of the beef on the edge of each shell. Tightly roll each one into a cigar shape. (You need to do this quite quickly, before the cheese hardens)
  • Turn your oven temperature down to 350 F. Place the cheesy beef rolls in a row on a small baking pan or dish. Then pour the enchiladas sauce evenly over them. Cover with remaining 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese, then bake for 8 - 10 minutes of until the cheese on top is melted.
  • Remove from the pan and serve with sour cream and chopped cilantro.
