3-Ingredient Chili-Cheese Enchiladas

Here is a super fun weeknight dinner recipe that only uses 3-ingredients!! Yes, you heard me… these 3-ingredient Chili-Cheese Enchiladas are a total hit with the whole family and perfect for nights that you don’t want to work too hard in the kitchen and need to use what you have on hand. 

3-ingredient Chili-Cheese Enchiladas

Growing up, one of my best friends Mom’s (Mrs. Penny) made a recipe similar to this that we were obsessed with! A simple recipe that required just a few easy ingredients that was perfect for feeding a crowd. Mrs. Penny would whip up a batch of these enchiladas anytime she knew all of our friends were coming over for dinner and we would devour them. 

Originally made with convenient items like store-bought flour tortillas, a block of velveeta cheese, and a can of chili, I’ve recreated a version of Penny’s Chili-Cheese enchiladas in my own kitchen using ingredients that I always have on hand: Siete Foods grain-free almond flour tortillas, organic Monterey jack cheese and, most importantly, Kettle & Fire’s Grass Fed Beef Chili made with Bone Broth. Y’all, this carton of chili is so legit and I love having it in my pantry for these enchiladas, a quick bowl of chili for lunch, or making Frito Chili Pies for the kiddos!

  • Once all the enchiladas are rolled, pour the remaining chili over the enchilada and using a rubber spatula, spread to evenly coat the tops of the enchiladas. Top with the remaining shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

    I not only used leftover homemade chili, but I stuffed the tortilla with chili, cheese and sliced black olives. They were amazing!

    Loved this. And thought I’d order a bundle of the beef chili but it’s no longer on the website. Has it been discontinued?
    Also We loved this so much we were hoping for a chicken enchilada version. Any suggestion?

      Looks like they may no longer have in stock online, but others have mentioned still seeing it available in-store as well as through Amazon! For a chicken version, you could add shredded chicken into the enchiladas, then top with salsa verde and more cheese before baking. Similar to this recipe but even more simplified!

    One of our favorite recipes and I used my last box of the Kettle & Fire chili and beans and it looks like it is no longer on their website and I never see it in grocery stores. Do you know if they have discontinued it? And if so, is there another brand you recommend.

      Some people are still having luck finding it in-store at grocery stores + Walmart and I also think it is available through Amazon!

    My grocery store (Kroger) didn’t have Kettle and Fire so I just got a brand called Home Chef beef chili and beans and it was delicious! 10/10 for sure. I also added rotisserie chicken and even my toddler loved it! Love all the Delicious Dish recipes!

      If I wanted to make this and didn’t have the kettle fire what would you use instead? Just at the grocery store now

    These were MEGA easy and delish! They present beautifully, too! Next time, I’m going to try Pepper Jack vs. Monterey Jack to kick it up a notch on the spice level. Another great one! Thanks Alex!

    Reminiscent of the chili cheese enchiladas I had growing up in Texas! My husband complained about it only being cheese enchiladas and ended up loving it! Be aware that 8 enchiladas goes quickly with a family.

    So good and so fast!
    My thrive didn’t show up in time with my kettle and fire beef chili, so I used a can of bean chili from WF and added some cooked ground beef. Still quick, easy, and minimal mess!
