Venison Enchilada Casserole

My son's freezer was unpluged by mistake and all his venison steaks were unthawed so I raided the pantry and came up with this casserole to help use up the meat. It was delicious. I'm sure it would go well with beef or pork also. The meat looked like a pulled pork. The recipe freezes well also. The sauce is rich and spicy.
