Weeknight Beef Enchilada Casserole

"I got this recipe many years ago when I requested recipes from family members for a family cookbook. It took a long time for me to try it and I was glad when I finally did. The ingredients mix well and result in a creamy casserole."

    The recipe calls for 1 pound of shredded cheese - this is all mixed together with the rest of the ingredients (not on top)?

    WOW! This is FABULOUS stuff! I made it for a friend and we both (as well as my two year old) LOVED it and couldn't get enough. Only changes I made were to omit the onions, add some taco seasoning to the meat, and used low-fat ingredients. We loved it best with sour cream on top and sprinkle of jalapenos! Thank you so much for sharing -- this one's a star!

    This is a GREAT casserole and it gets better the longer it has time to be a "leftover", if that's even possible with this dish. The black olives add that kick and the corn tortillas were perfect. Picky husband gave this a 10.

    Very good. Also pretty rich. As others have mentioned, even better the second day. Second time I made it I substituted a can of soup for a cup of milk. Turned out fine. To cut the richness, I garnished with shredded lettuce and picante instead. Delicious!

    Good tasting casserole. Made an easy dinner for us. Made for PAC Fall 2012.

    This is a great casserole!!! It is very creamy and rich! This is really easy to make and a great time-saver!! I used extra lean ground beef and only about 3/4 of the pound of cheese. After I browned and drained my beef with the onions in a Texas size skillet, I had enough room to mix everything in the skillet before putting in my casserole dish, this cut down on my dishes!! I used chopped black olives and I thought they really made it great. I got some sliced black olives plus roma tomatoes and green onions to garnish along with my sour cream and recipe#312549 that I had made. Love this recipe, will make again when I am craving homemade enchiladas!
