  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles (optional)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 10 corn tortillas
  • Optional Toppings: fresh chopped tomato, shredded lettuce, minced onion 


  1. Add ground beef to a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat then season with salt and pepper. Brown beef then drain and add to a large mixing bowl. Stir in ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and pickles then set aside.  
  2. Turn heat down to medium then carefully wipe out skillet with a paper towel. Melt butter in skillet then sprinkle in flour and whisk to incorporate. Cook for 30 seconds then slowly pour in milk while whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Season with salt and pepper then turn heat up slightly to bring to a bubble and then turn heat back down to medium and cook until slightly thickened and bubbly, stirring often, about 8 minutes (don’t let it get too thick.)  
  3. Take skillet off the heat then stir in cheese in 2 batches making sure the sauce is smooth before adding the next batch. Sprinkle in chili powder then stir until smooth.  
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees then spray a 9×13″ baking dish very well with nonstick spray, and then spread a couple Tablespoons chili cheese sauce in the bottom.  
  5. Wrap half the tortillas in a damp paper towel then microwave for 30 seconds. Spread about 1/4 cup ground beef filling across the center of each tortilla then roll and place seam side down in the prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining ingredients then pour remaining chili cheese sauce on top, taking care to cover all the exposed tortillas (they will get hard while baking if not covered in sauce.)  
  6. Spray a large piece of foil with nonstick spray then place sprayed side down on the baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes then remove foil and bake for 5 more minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving with toppings.
