This easy recipe was a hit! My boyfriend loved it and asked me to make it again soon. I did make a couple tweaks: <br/>1) I omitted the "chunky salsa" ingredient and opted instead for a can of Ro-Tel. This added a bit of heat and lots of flavor.<br/>2) Instead of cheddar cheese, I used a bag of Mexican blend cheese. <br/><br/>I made the sauce as indicated and put the first layer of tortillas in the dish. I then poured what I thought was about the first half of the meat sauce, but when I went to pour the last half of that sauce, I was running out and had to spread it out quite a bit to cover the dish. I guess I could be terrible at judging amounts, though :) Just to be safe I think I will use closer to 1.5 lbs of beef next time. <br/><br/>Overall, it was indeed VERY easy with a delicious and impressive tasting result!
This was quick, easy, and soooo delicious. I will repeat this one for sure!
Very good. This dish is great for crowd. I definitely would make this again.
Made it tonight and LOVED it! I took out the olives, added a can of Hot Rotel and used whole wheat tortillas. I was shocked that such easy preparation yielded so much flavor!! Maybe next time I'll try it with chicken...
Yummy. I was in the mood for enchiladas but without all the rolling and a casserole fit the need but I was also in the mood for spicy yumminess to have without taking an hour and this fit the bill perfectly. I made it to the recipe using Pace thick and chunky salsa HOT and La Palmas medium enchilada sauce mixed with 85/15 ground beef. I think this would do very well with ground turkey as well since there's so much flavor between the sauces and the refried beans to choose from.
Pretty yummy! Love that it helps you clean out the pantry - I was able to make it with things I already had on hand... It had great flavor, but I could take it spicier. I think next time I'll use pepper jack cheese, add some jalapenos, and maybe some Chipotle Tabasco sauce. Great recipe - thanks for sharing!
This was delicious! My family loved it and it's going into the regular rotation. It was really easy and it set up nicely and came out of the pan easily right away, no standing time needed. I used a blend of sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack. I added green onions and cilantro to the top the last 5 minutes of baking. We topped it with crushed tortilla chips, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and taco sauce. My son had two helpings and that happens very rarely! Thank you for posting this!
This is wonderfully quick and tasty! I make it with spicier enchilada sauce and salsa since that's what we like. The only other change I make is to double the refried beans (2 cans instead of one). Fantastic recipe!
I was looking for spicy and cheesy comfort food for a cold winter night and this did the trick. I had some chorizo on hand so used 1/2 lb chorizo and 1/2 lb ground beef. My husband said it wasn't in his top ten which I wasn't surprised about because he's not a big casserole guy anyway. This just means more leftovers for me to freeze for delicious lunches. Thanks for posting!
I did not change anything. What a great recipe. My brother loved it. Sure will be making over and over. Easy and I had the ingredients on hand. Thank You
