I've been making this recipe for almost 18 years now...my sister taught it to me..it's become one of my favorite ones. I've found over the years that I prefer making it with chicken and the green sauce..but it's good either way! It's always a hit wherever I bring this dish and people are always asking me for this recipe. There are never leftovers with this recipe!

How to Make Enchilada Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Saute onions till tender.
  2. Add meat and brown.
  3. Add soups (in condensed form), enchilada sauce, water & green chilies. Saute' for 20 minutes.
  4. In a 9 X 13 pan, add a little sauce at the bottom, then start with a tortilla, cover the bottom of the pan (you'll need about 1 1/2 tortillas), then add some sauce, this usually takes about 2-3 spoonfulls (cooking spoon). Keep layering the tortillas and sauce till the last layer is sauce. Cover the casserole with shredded cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes till cheese is melted.
