How to Make Enchilada Casserole

Start by preheating oven to 350 degrees.

While oven is preheating, brown the hamburger along with the  diced onion and green chilis. This will help bring out the flavors!

Once your meat is done cooking, drain the fat (if necessary.) Now comes putting the casserole together!

Make sure to spray your 9×13 pan with cooking oil to keep from sticking. Then pour some of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of pan. Then lay 2 tortillas on top of it, then add a bit more sauce. Then add your meat mixture, then shredded cheese. Repeat this process until you have added a few layers and make sure the last layer is cheese!

Once you are done putting casserole together, bake for around 20-25 minutes. The cheese will be melted and a little brown.

Then top with sour cream, black olives, salsa or whatever else you want and serve.

So as you can see pretty easy to make, and doesn’t take a lot of prep work. You can also choose to top with lettuce, diced tomatoes, more chopped onion, jalapenos, or whatever you and your family enjoy!!

    This can also be done with burritos and tacos. My enchilada recipe also includes a couple layers of nacho cheese Doritos (crushed). The dish is always empty before the end of the party. Absolutely delicious!!
