Skillet Enchiladas



There are so many different forms of enchiladas and they are all so amazing.  Skillet Enchiladas are really like a lazy cook’s enchiladas.  No rolling up of tortillas is involved in this recipe.  You could make this dish even easier by using tortilla chips instead of tortillas.  Either way it will be an easy and delicious dinner.


1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
12 Flour Tortillas (8 inch size)
1 Onion, diced
1 1/2 lbs Ground Beef
