This Cheesy Beef Enchilada Dip wins me big points with my 15-year-old son and husband every time I make it! My son Connor made it the last time we enjoyed (which I love). Watch out ladies, this may be the dish he makes the first time he ever cooks for a girl, lol!
Making this Beef Enchilada Dip is easy! A quick prep of the ingredients, cooking the ground beef, assembling the dip and a short trip to the oven is all it takes until you do your first scoop.
Table of Contents
- olive or avocado oil
- ground beef
- Salt & pepper
- black beans
- enchilada sauce (see how to make your own here)

Sports season is about to get into full swing, so try this Cheesy Beef Enchilada Dip at one of your next gatherings (or just because at home...especially if you have teenage boys...Trust me, lol!) It's like a beef enchilada but with a crunch!
