I have tried many enchilada casserole recipes and this is the best yet. I added green onions to the meat mixture and used sweet corn kernals instead of olives to add a contrast to all of the other salty ingredients. I also cut back the cheese by about half (health concerns) and this came out just super delicious! Also, put your refried beans in the microwave for 2 minutes and then stir them, it makes them very easy to spread.
this is a very easy and delicious dish, you could also change the recipe for your prefrences or even roll these up to make actual enchiladas. I reccomend this dish highly!!
I made this for a potluck and everyone gobbled it up. Its quite easy to make. I left with an empty dish and requests for this recipe. A definate winner!
I am always worried when I plan to try enchiladas, as my family has never liked the ones I've done. I tried this, using corn tortillas, 1 jalapeno, beans instead of refried, added chopped homegrown tomatoes when cooking veggies (and I think another veggie). I made it in a 9x13 and used 10 small sized tortillas. I thought it would come out too hot, so I added some sour cream and the whole family loved it. My picky 17 yo ate a lot. As did the picky 8 yo! Yeah!
This was fantastic.My husband loved it too. I used soy crumbles instead of hamburger to cut down on fat. Couldn't tell any difference. I also sprinkled some avocado in the layers. It was wonderful. I'll deffinitely be making this again. Thanks a ton for this great recipe. =)
I made this for a family dinner and they loved it. The only thing I changed was instead of jalapenos I used a 4.5 oz can of diced chilles. I just don't like jalapenos. Thanks for the great recipe!!!
Excelent! Exactly what I was craving! I used corn tortillas instead of flour, shredded chicken, and a can of chopped ortega chilis instead of a jalapeno, and I omitted the beans. Everybody loved it!
This was an awesome recipe. I added mexican corn (corn with peppers and black beans) and did one half of the pan with chicken (sprinkled with taco sauce) and one half with a beef/venison mix. My hubby loved it and he never likes mexican food. I found it very flavorful and the perfect consistency. Use enchilada sauce sparingly as suggested. It will seem like too little, but it turns out perfect if you pour a little more on top about 10-15 minutes before it's done.
This was a delicious dish!!! I will definitely be making this more.
My family loved, loved, loved this! Made 1 1/2 times in a larger pan and it came out great. So glad I did, now I have some for lunch. :) made as directed using the Mexican Enchilada Sauce #109685 (doubled for my extra large casserole). The pairing of these two is perfect! Using this sauce, well seasoned meat and beans, onions, jalape?o, and olives made for a nicely flavored dish. I can't imagine this being called bland unless the sauce or other seasonings were not up to par. In any case, each component tasted great and combined for a super casserole. Thanks for the new dish. Family already wants to have this again..
