    Cooks4_6's Note:

    My family loves enchiladas! This recipe makes them just as yummy but with half the labor! You can substitute canned enchilada sauce and refried beans but making them from scratch makes it so much more delicious! You can also substitute additional water or vegetable broth for the chicken broth.

    Refried Beans

    Enchilada Sauce

    Condiments (Optional)


    1. 1
      To make the REFRIED BEANS: Place the drained beans, butter, salt and green chilies in a food processor and puree until smooth.
    2. 2
      To make the ENCHILADA SAUCE: Melt butter/margarine in a sauce pan. Make a roux by browning flour in melted butter/margarine. Add spices and tomato paste; stir until well blended into roux. Add water gradually, stirring constantly. Heat until boiling. Add broth and continue simmering and stirring until desired thickness is achieved.
    3. 3
      To make LAYERS: Brown the ground beef with onion, and drain. Prepare with taco seasoning as directed on the package.
    4. 4
      Place a thin layer of enchilada sauce at the bottom of a small, rectangular baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
    5. 5
      Place 3 tortillas in the pan, layering slightly. I cut the edges of the two side ones to better fit the pan.
    6. 6
      Spread 1/3 of the refried beans over the tortillas.
    7. 7
      Spread 1/3 of the meat over the beans.
    8. 8
      Add 1/3 of the sauce.
    9. 9
      Add 1/3 of the cheese.
    10. 10
      Repeat 2 more times ending with the cheese.
    11. 11
      Spray the bottom of a piece of foil and cover the pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until bubbly.
    12. 12
      Remove from the oven and allow it to cool for 15 minutes before cutting.
    13. 13
      Top individual servings with desired condiments.

      This is a fantastic casserole but I don't think it's quite the same as eating enchiladas. But its not as much work as actuaal enchiladas are so its the next best thing. I wasn't sure how to layer the tortillas so I just put 1 in the pan and tore the others to fit around it. We ate ours with sour cream. Thanks for posting!

      This was so easy and so good, just what I was looking for. I took your suggestion and used Mucho Gusto Taco Seasoning Mix for the taco seasoning and it was great. I also used left over chicken from one we'd roasted instead of hamburger, tossing it in the taco seasoning, then followed directions it turned out great, even DH who is picky about his Mexican food and the spices in it claimed this as a winner and a must repeat. Me, I loved the simplicity of layering instead of trying to wrap each individual one. All in all a very nice recipe. Made for Photo Tag 2013 game and I must say a great choice.
