This deconstructed recipe for Beef Enchiladas with creamy Sriracha sauce is made in one skillet in only 30 minutes, perfect for busy weeknight dinners!
Today on the blog I’m combining two of my favorite things, beef enchiladas and one pot meals!
This deconstructed version of an enchilada might not look as pretty as it’s perfectly rolled up counterpart, but the entire dish is made in only one skillet and in 30 minutes, and you just can’t beat that!
After cooking up the meat, simply add all of the sauce ingredients to the skillet, simmer, then top with tortillas and cheese, cover and let the cheese melt in! Easy as that, you have all of the delicious elements of traditional beef enchiladas with much less mess, and in only 30 minutes!

- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp paprika

- 1 + ½ cup beef broth
- 1 cup sour cream
- ¼ cup sriracha
- 6 oz can tomato paste

Add the ground beef to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the ground beef through, 7-10 minutes, then drain any grease.
