Make dinner delicious with this Enchilada Casserole!

Enchilada Casserole

In my family, we love Mexican foods, all different kinds!  There are some nights that I’m just not really excited about dinner, but when I know we are having Mexican for dinner…I can’t wait!

Enchilada Casserole

A few weeks back, I spotted this Enchilada Casserole on Cooking Light and knew I had to try this.  I did have to make a few changes due to being gluten free.  I decided to use White Corn Tortillas instead of flour tortillas, which also means that I used a lot more than what the original calls for.  I altered a few other items which cut down on cook time, but the end result was just as tasty.  This is one of those meals the entire family will love!

Enchilada Casserole

This dish is sort of like a wonderful base and then you can make many additions once it’s baked.  This can be topped with lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, or any of your favorites.  I like to add a little homemade salsa to ours too.  This is one of those meals that you need on your menu a few times a month.  It’s just one of those I can guarantee my entire family will eat!

I topped ours with a little sour cream and cilantro, then I paired it with a side of corn to complete the meal.  What other sides would you pair with this?  I would love to hear them.  I’m also looking for even more ways to make this a little better-for-you too although it’s pretty good if you keep in line the cheese and toppings.

    I still make a very good chicken enchilada very home made. But this reciepe looks quick and good. No cream soup ( thank goodness). Calif. grown and raised now moved, just have not gotten or found a casserole dish with out using it. My son loves my enchiladas, but with 3 kids, work, and hockey no way!! But grandma will show him this he could make it after work. He loves to cook and gets home before wife. Ty I will copy this, no printer!!!!,

      Those enchiladas sound delicious!! I hope you enjoy this one!

    This was very good! I had to change a couple of things because I didn’t have what the recipe called for on hand. I used mild enchilada sauce since I didn’t have tomato sauce (and added 2 TBLS flour as the sauce was thinner than tomato sauce) so I skipped the green chilies since I figured the enchilada sauce plus the taco seasoning would give it enough flavor and I used flour tortillas instead of corn. It turned out great! My husband and I loved it. I will definitely be making this recipe again!

      So glad you liked it! My husband likes it with flour tortillas too.

    I was just in my fridge trying to figure out what to do with the left over beef cheese and tacos from our latest taco night. I knew I wanted something different and thanks to this post I think I just found it!!

    This looks easy. I like easy. I’ve tried to make regular enchiladas and failed miserably at it, which is sad because supposedly they’re so easy. I like that this is flat LOL. Nothing I have to roll up! Will add this to our list of “must try dinners”! Thank you for the recipe!

    This looks delish! I love enchiladas to begin with, but this sounds like something I could completely get on board with! I will definitely have to add this to my recipe box. Thank you!

    I wanted to ask since I have a very picky eater if your kids like the green chiles? 8 see a lot of kid dishes with these types of ingredients and wonder if I’m the only one with a picky kid ! Lol

    This looks super delicious. It combines two things I like: tortillas and cheese. I also made a salsa and cheese today, so I think I’ll save this recipe for later.

    I always love enchiladas so this recipe of yours is something that I absolutely love! Thank you so much. You just saved me from thinking of a cool new dish to cook tomorrow

    This looks so insanely good! One of my favorite recipes EVER is an enchilada recipe. I am a total sucker for red enchilada sauce, tacos and well, Mexican style food in general!

    This looks really easy and delicious. I make something very similar to it. My crew always loves to eat mexican food. I know it would be a hit. You can never go wrong with enchiladas.
