Enchilada Pasta Skillet is a homemade version of Hamburger Helper with a Mexican twist! Dinner is ready in 20 minutes, so it is perfect for any night of the week.
My family loves anything with Mexican flavors. Mexican Skillet Potatoes is such an easy dinner that my family loves. Pretty much anything that involves taco seasoning means my family is happy. And I love a good one pan meal that I can make quickly.
My son requests some kind of pasta skillet every time I ask him what he wants for dinner. Taco Pasta Skillet is pretty much my go to when he requests it. But this enchilada pasta is right up there, the enchilada sauce gives it so much extra flavor!
Busy weeks call for easy dinner recipes. You want to get dinner on the table and not rely on take out every night. You guys seem to be big fans of quick and easy dinners, so this should be right up your alley. This Cheeseburger Macaroni Skillet was a big hit, so this time I decided to put a little Mexican twist on it.
It uses the same concept of cooking everything together in one skillet, it is ready in 20 minutes, and uses just a few ingredients. If your family likes enchiladas or Mexican food, this enchilada pasta is going to be one you want to try.
Enchiladas are one of our favorite foods, but they take so long to make. Cooking the meat, getting the filling ready, the rolling, and then it still takes 45 minutes to bake. You won’t miss any of that hassle with this Enchilada Pasta I used canned enchilada sauce to make my life easier, but if you have a favorite homemade version, go right ahead! You can top your pasta with some of your favorite enchilada toppings too if you want.
And if white enchiladas are more your thing check out this White Chicken Enchilada recipe for a quick and easy dinner you can make in just one pan!
Black olives, diced avocado, tomatoes, sour cream, or even chopped cilantro would all be good choices for toppings. My 9 year old did everything in his power to not actually lick his plate the couple times I have made this. He loves the sauce, and asks for Enchilada Pasta Skillet often. The leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day too!
