Enchilada Casserole makes dinner planning so easy. All the taste and flavor of regular enchiladas with less work!
Enchilada Casserole is the perfect meal for a busy night. You can put it together quickly and easily the night before or first thing in the morning and then just keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake it. And you get all the same taste and flavor of your favorite beef enchiladas, but because it is layered in a casserole dish it is easier and quicker to put together!
How to Make Enchilada Casserole
Cook your hamburger, onion and garlic first and then add in your tomatoes, black olives and enchilada sauce. Allow the meat mixture to simmer for 30 minutes until it thickens up.
Next, you will start the easy layer process. Start by layering the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan with 6 corn tortillas.
Cover tortillas with half of your meat mixture, half your green onions, black olives and cheese.
Then repeat the process – tortillas, meat, green onions, olives and cheese. And then bake the enchilada casserole at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
Then all you have to do is dish it up!! I love to top mine with more green onion, some cherry tomatotes from the garden and I liked shredded iceberg lettuce with my enchiladas. Then all that is left to do is add a fork and dig in!
Enchilada Casserole is perfect with my favorite Mexican rice recipe !
