South of the Border Casserole

South of the Border Casserole created by ErikaNY

An easy and family pleasing casserole that's on the table in less than 45 minutes. I serve this with a guacamole salad, or a green salad with slices of avocado.

  • Preheat oven to 325 and grease 1 1/2 qrt casserole dish.
  • Brown meat and drain.

  • Layer one-third of meat mixture, cheese and one half of tortillas in casserole dish; repeat layers, ending with cheese.
  • Bake at 325 for 20 minutes.
  • Note: Corn tortillas will soften and absorb the sauce.
  • These are recommended.
  • Flour tortillas will expand and the casserole will be too doughy-therefore flour tortillas are not recommended.

    Very easy for a weeknight dinner! I used 2tsp of Aussie chili powder for a nice spicy dish. Served with a salad and sour cream, thanks for posting!

    This casserole was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly as written, it was my first time using a jalapeno pepper :) Husband and I both had second helpings and I'm sure I'll be having the rest tomorrow for lunch! Will definitely make again and again, thanks for the great recipe!

    My family and especially the kids loved your casserole. It was easy to prepare so I was happy. I added a couple a chopped garlic cloves to the meat mixture and used 1/2 of a jalapeno--because of the kids. Made a nice family meal. Thanks Pan Nan.
