This enchilada pie is a family favorite that was modified from a recipe given to my mother by a coworker over forty years ago. It is actually laid out much like lasagna so it's a lot less work than traditional enchiladas.

Robin's Enchilada Pie is layered with so much love. The blend of meat and spices make for an authentic Mexican flavor that's sure to put a smile on your face! Frying the tortillas adds an extra layer of crispiness. The combination of cheese makes this dish super cheesy. Red enchilada sauce adds tangy Mexican flavor. Garnished with black olives, tomatoes, and green onion, this is a filling casserole. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
