Steak Enchiladas

We’ve made these Steak Enchiladas lovingly just for you, so we hope that you enjoy them and keep coming back to make them more than once! With the help of Gran Luchito Chipotle Enchilada Sauce you can make this amazing dish for dinner in no time. We do all the work for you so that you can make this steak enchiladas recipe at home any day you want.

Attention steak lovers! This is the perfect marriage of juicy tender steak with slow cooked onions and our Chipotle Enchilada Sauce.

These steak enchiladas with red sauce are made with Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps filled with steak and onions and then wrapped into a taco-like shape. Once filled, they can be laid in a baking dish and finally covered in the delicious red enchilada sauce and grated cheese scattered on top.

Once baked in the oven we recommend serving steak enchiladas recipes alongside Refried Beans, our recipe for Mexican Elotes, or Mexican Rice.

How to make it

  1. Heat up 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot enough add in the onions and fry until they soften and get a bit of colour (5-7 mins). Simply season with a pinch of salt. When ready, remove the onions from the pan and set aside.
  2. In the same pan add the remaining olive oil and butter, then heat it up over medium-high heat. Season the steak with salt and pepper, then place it into the pan and cook the steak for 2 to 3 minutes on each side (for medium) depending on the thickness. Once ready, remove the steak from the heat and allow it to rest for 6 to 7 minutes before cutting. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/360˚F. Cut the steak into bite-size pieces. In a medium size baking dish, start laying the enchiladas. Add some of the steak into one of your Soft Tacos, then add a spoonful of fried onions, and wrap it into a taco-like shape and place it in the baking dish. Repeat the same process with the rest of the tortillas and steak. Once your baking dish is full, pour in the Chipotle Enchilada Sauce on top and the grated cheese, and place them in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, prepare a quick pico de gallo by combining in a bowl the tomato, onion, and coriander with the lime juice and extra virgin olive oil. Simply season with a pinch of salt and black pepper, and set aside.
  5. Remove the hot enchiladas from the oven and serve them warm. Add spoonfuls of pico de gallo on top and enjoy!
