This is my Mom's Mexican casserole, it's my brother's most requested dish.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown meat with onions, drain fat.
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients except the cheese and tortillas.
  3. Grease a large casserole dish.
  4. Now alternate torn tortillas, the meat and soup mixture then the cheese. You can do this twice. I like to end with the cheese or save some of the cheese for the top.
  5. Top with remaining cheese. Bake in 350° oven for 30 minutes.

Very good recipe overall. However we did find the corn tortilla shells to be a bit overpowering in the dish. Next time I will try using the flour ones even though they will be a bit soft I think it will work. We still enjoyed it but for our taste preference we do not care for the flavor of the corn shells.

Wow! 5 stars from the whole family! Wilma was onto something, here! Loved the taste, ease and consistancy. So easy to prepare on a work night and serve leftovers the next night. I did add a little crushed red pepper after cooking for heat. This would be nice with sliced black olives and scallions on top to garnish. Just wonderful! Thanks, Luvin' Texas!

I didn't have any enchilada sauce or taco sauce, but thanks to your website I made homemade sauces to go with this great casserole. The flavor is great, and I think next time I'll throw in some refried beans, jalapenos, olives, and corn to give it a kick. Love this! Thank you!
