This Italian Enchilada Skillet is a comfort food fusion in one convenient skillet. Ground beef, Italian sausage and spinach layered between tortillas with tons of melty cheese and marinara sauce in a cast iron skillet.
Italian Enchilada Skillet
One day a handsome enchilada was walking down the street and passed a pretty slice of lasagna. He took one look and they fell in love. They were from different worlds but it didn’t matter. They found a nice cozy cast iron skillet and built a cheesy, messy, delicious life together.
It was a romantic fusion of two cultures just like Paul and I… Pretty cute, huh? I guess I am being exceptionally dorky because today is our anniversary. Yep, it’s been 2 years since we snuck off to Vegas and tied the knot.
2 years of ups and downs, of starting over, then starting over again and finally finding a little balance. The blog has changed tremendously, Paul’s business is growing and the kid has one foot out the door. We are a long way from where we started and it’s only going to get better!
With everything we juggle on a daily basis, up at 3am work then work until we drop 6 days a week, dinner needs to be delicious and easy. But sometimes delicious is also super messy.

What I love most about this Italian Enchilada Skillet are the layers! Lasagna has layers of pasta. Enchiladas are made with tortillas. And you know how we feel about tortillas! lol
You start by making the filling in the pan on the stove. Ground beef, sweet Italian sausage, fresh spinach and diced onions. Be sure to salt and pepper the mixture.
Scoop it all into a bowl and set aside. Start with a layer of marinara sauce in the bottom of your skillet. I used a simple jarred sauce from Target.
Then put down a layer of tortilla. Find ones that fit your skillet perfectly or cut them down to size like I did. You just want to make sure it covers the whole area.
Top with half the filling and more sauce.
Then go for another layer of tortillas and the remaining filling. And don’t forget more sauce.
The top layer is going to be tortillas topped with the remaining sauce…
And lots of cheese!! I also gave the top a sprinkling of dried Italian seasonings.
Needless to say this Italian Enchilada Skillet didn’t last long. We had a family friend over for dinner and the guys destroyed every last bite.
