Tuna or Chicken Enchilada Casserole

"I made this up the other night using what I had on hand. It turned out pretty good! If you don't enjoy pasty flour tortillas I think this would work great with cooked rice. Also the onion will remain slightly crunchy so if you don't like that then you can omit it or sauté it first."

    We love this! I used corn tortilla's, sliced and layered on the top and bottom because my husband is allergic to wheat. I also used Kittencal's sauce. The last time I made it I added finely shredded spinach because it's an easy way to get my family to eat it, they don't even notice it's in there! Thanks so much for sharing. Freezes well too.

    I'll probably make this again and play around with the ingredients more. The cheese overpowered the taste of the enchilada sauce this time, but over all it was a good dish.

    This gets 5 stars for the simplicity of putting this together. Of course to be fair...I omitted a bunch of ingredients per family's preference. Corn, green chili's, onion, black olives. So, pretty much chicken (that was the meat of choice for these enchilada's), sourcream, cheese, tortilla strips, and enchilada sauce. (red). Served with some soft-shell chicken tacos'. Yummy!!! Made for 123HitWonders'.

    I made this using cooked turkey that I had in my freezer, I only cooked mine for about 30 minutes or the flour tortilla would have ended up way too soft, I used my recipe#168653 also did a few amount adjustments, this turned out well and my DS enjoyed it, thanks for sharing!...Kitten

I love to cook and share good food with other people. I have a very large collection of cookbooks. I used to enjoy being able to look up recipes on Zaar by ingredients I had on hand. I miss the Zaar tag game community. Everyone was so nice, and it was super fun. Ah, the good ol' days.
