Enchilada Casserole


Easiest. Enchiladas. Ever!! And so delicious! And such a great way to eat them too . . . a little bit of everything in each bite!! This is one of those meals that you throw together very easily and then forget about it in the oven while you help kids with homework, mop the floor, fold a load of laundry . . . OR kick back and watch a sitcom, sip an ice-cold soda with your feet up, and enjoy yourself for a half an hour. Now we’re talkin’!


1 lb. ground beef

salt and pepper to taste

1 sweet onion, chopped

1 can (10 oz.) enchilada sauce

2 T taco seasoning

¾ c sour cream

1½ c frozen corn (optional)

6 flour tortillas (use 8-inch tortillas, cut each into fourths)

3 c shredded Mexican cheese

Toppings: shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, additional sour cream


Brown beef over medium heat. Salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to medium/low and add onion. Cook 1-2 minutes. Stir in enchilada sauce, taco seasoning, and sour cream. Add corn, if desired. Remove from heat.


Butter 9 x 13 dish. Build casserole by layering meat/sauce, tortillas, and cheese three or four times (starting with meat/sauce and ending with lots of cheese) in dish. Cover with foil. Bake at 375°F for 30-35 minutes. Remove foil and serve warm. Top with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, etc.
