  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • ¼ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 ½ cups enchilada sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can sliced black olives, drained
  • ¼ cup shredded Cheddar cheese





Method of Preparation


  1. To begin with the recipe, you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Then place a skillet on a gas stove over medium heat. Add oil to it. When the oil is warm, add in ground beef with onion and cook until the meat is crumbly and no longer remains pink, which will take about 10 minutes. 
  3. When the meat is cooked properly, drain grease. Add in 1 cup Cheddar cheese, sour cream, parsley, taco seasoning, oregano, and black pepper into the ground beef. Cook until the cheese is melted. 
  4. Now add in enchilada sauce, chilli powder, garlic, and salt to the meat. Bring all the ingredients to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until meat sauce is slightly thickened, which will take you about 5 minutes.
  5. To assemble the enchilada, lay a tortilla into a work surface and spoon about ¼ cup of meat sauce at the center of the tortilla. Add1 tablespoon of beans and black olives. 
  6. Roll the tortilla up, enclosing the filling, while keeping it down in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Repeat the same procedure with remaining tortillas. Spoon any remaining meat sauce over the enchiladas and add any remaining black beans and black olives over the top. Then, sprinkle tortillas with ¼ cup cheddar cheese.
  7. Bake the enchilada in the preheated oven until the cheese topping is melted and enchiladas and sauce starts to bubble, which will take you about 20 to 22 minutes. 
  8. Serve the enchiladas with your favourite toppings.

I had the # 5 combination meat enchiladas with rice and refried beans, the total bill was $8.41, a pretty good price as there was a lot of meat in the enchiladas. I was very pleased as the service was fast and the food was good, if you want a good, fast , economical meal, then for sure this place might be a good bet.

Over time, this location has proven itself worthy of the 4 stars. Clean, friendly, and prompt. Salsa bar is always kept full, and the food is consistent.


**original review below:


I for one have always been a fan of local dining so I would pick this over a taco bell any day! The service here is always spot on, and the people are really nice. The menu has all your ameri-mexican favorites, burrito, taco, enchiladas, nachos...etc. None of the menu items have failed me yet.


They have a fresh salsa bar which is rare for fast food and they also have hash browns or as they call "potato things" which totally completes any order. The meat in the tacos are generous.


Don't expect the real authentic mexican deal here (there are a good few in town if you prefer that experience), but Taco inn is dependable and yummy, perfect for a snack or meal, this american-mexican favorite will have you happy you stopped by

Ladies and jelly spoons... the taco game in NY has officially been elevated. If you think you've found a more thorough taqueria in the 5 boroughs, you're fooling yourself. Slap yourself 5 times... HARD. Go! You finished? Good! Now repent! For Taco Inn is here to pardon the transgressions of NY's often maligned taco scene. For starters, their hand made tortillas are the right thickness. Perfect! Strong enough to hold a good amount of meat but thin enough to not take away from the flavor of everything you eat. I went with some classics: Bisket, Pastor, Pollo and Carne Enchilada. Half regular, half estilo Americano. Fantastic either way. Their sauces are also fantastic. Just enough heat to get the sinuses echoing but without taking away from the flavor. Price is perfect. Service is great. There is only one single drawback which is in no way the fault of the restaurant. They are close to a nail salon so that chemical smell from polish and the like may be off putting when you first enter. Brave it and treat yourself to amazing tacos. If you don't like it... slap yourself even harder for being a Gunther! I'm right, you're wrong. Period.

What's the best way to freeze an enchilada?


Ans: When the enchiladas are completely cooled, store the enchiladas in a freezer-safe or an aluminum foil container. Then you need to cover the container with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. If you want to freeze enchiladas individually, then freeze the sauce on the side and wrap each enchilada tightly in plastic wrap before wrapping them in aluminum foil.
