Super Easy Recipe to the Post-Holiday Rescue!: Enchilada Casserole

OK, so enchilada casserole isn't exactly a, er, particularly fancy recipe.

But hey, not ALL recipes can be fancy. It's delicious, fairly inexpensive, and can be made in less than an hour total, including cooking time. There are many, many possible variations on this recipe.... it can be made more or less onion-y, with chicken or beef, vegetarian, more layered, less layered, seasoned... Use my recipe or try making your own! :)

Enchilada Casserole


One package corn tortillas
One large can vegetarian refried beans
One pound ground beef
One taco seasoning pack
One or more large cans enchilada sauce, according to taste
About half a block of cheddar cheese, grated
Half a medium onion, diced

Additional ingredients: guacamole, lettuce, sour cream, salsas, green chile peppers, sliced red and green peppers, etc.
Lightly coat the bottom of a casserole dish with cooking spray.
Cook the ground beef and taco seasoning mix according to package directions.
Place a layer of corn tortillas on the bottom of the casserole dish. Layer prepared ground beef, sauce, beans, cheese, onion, and tortillas as desired, ending with a layer of cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees until the casserole is throughly warm and some of the liquid has cooked down, about half an hour.

Set out the additional ingredients to make your own plate with the casserole. :)

Mmmmm. :)

Maybe not picturesque, but definitely delicious. :)
