  1. Bring rice and 1 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is almost tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 9x13-inch baking dishes.
  3. Cook beef in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking it up as it cooks, until crumbly and browned, about 10 minutes. Drain excess grease and stir in onion and garlic until thoroughly combined. Stir taco seasoning and 1 cup water into the mixture, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes to thicken. Gently stir in rice. Cook, stirring often, until liquid is absorbed. Mix refried beans, cottage cheese, and 1 cup Cheddar cheese into the filling and stir until fully combined.
  4. Spread about 1/2 cup of filling in a line down the center of each tortilla and roll tortillas; place 5 tortillas with seam sides down into bottom of each prepared baking dish.
  5. Mix enchilada sauce with sour cream in a bowl and pour half the sauce down the center of each pan of enchiladas; sprinkle tops with 1 cup Cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese topping is melted and the filling is hot, 20 to 25 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • After step 5, if desired, cover 1 casserole with aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 months. To cook frozen casserole, let thaw in refrigerator overnight. Add 5 to 10 minutes to baking time.

My husband just LOVED this recipe ! I made exactly as is !

Made this for dinner when we had company the other night. The feedback was "this is better than any enchiladas I've had at the top Mexican restaurants." I think that says it all. Yum!!!

My husband loved them! It definitely needs fresh toppings before serving though such as diced tomato, some black olives, lettuce, and/or fresh diced onion

I made these tonight because I happened to have all the ingredients in my refrigerator and since we are leaving soon to go on a vacation, I wanted to try and "clean out" the fridge. I had a sma...

Absolutely delicious! Followed the recipe exactly...except for the refried beans because I forgot to buy some. I'm usually one to make changes to a recipe as I cook because I feel that it is lac...

I made this except I used cream cheese rather than cottage cheese. I found the end result to be quit bland and the filling resembled vomit. Good thing its wrapped in tortillas. The canned beans...
