This is the type of recipe that suits a college student or inexperienced cook. I developed it for my son who studies at Purdue. Rather than rolling individual enchiladas, you create a layered casserole with the corn tortillas on the bottom. With the simplicity of canned ingredients, this dinner can be assembled, baked, and put on the table in 30 minutes. To serve, add your preferred toppings, such as sour cream, black olives, extra cheese and salsa.
