Easy Enchilada Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by shells75

I got this off an internet site years ago and it's my favorite Mexican dish to make. It was from Roy Clark in Midwest Living Oct 1984. I have also made it with shredded chicken breast, and the last couple of times I made it I added a can of drained, rinsed light kidney beans. It's so yummy, honest! I lighten it up just a little using Campbell's "healthy" cream of chicken soup and skim or low fat milk. I also don't add the entire pack of taco seasoning...maybe about 3/4....but it's a taste preference.

I needed something easy to fix tonight for dinner. I came across this recipe and had to try it, boy am I glad I did. Everyone loved it. The only changes I made was to make it in a 11-1/2 x 7-inch pan and I used flour tortillas my husband doesn't like corn tortillas. This was so flavorful and so easy. Next time I will use about 3/4 or less taco seasoning it was a little spicey for my little ones. We will be having this often. Thanks so much for posting shells75!
