Easy way to get the same great flavor of enchiladas when you don't have the time to roll them. Note: You can also use 2 cooked chopped chicken breasts. When I do this, I add about 1/2 can enchilada sauce to the meat mixture. At Thanksgiving time, we always make turkey enchiladas on Friday. It has become a tradition that our family looks forward to almost as much as turkey day dinner.

How to Make Enchilada Casserole MMB

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown the beef and onion together, drain off the fat. Add beans and spices (you can adjust as desired).
  2. Pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan, make 2 layers of meat, tortillas, cheese, enchilada sauce,tortilla, ending with the cheese. Cover with enchilada sauce.
    Note: You may not use all of the second can of enchilada sauce. You want it moist, but not soupy.
