Easy Enchilada Casserole Recipe

I like having enchiladas from time to time, but I don’t like how it can take so much time and effort to get them rolled up perfectly and ready to serve. So I thought why not make an enchilada casserole!

This easy enchilada casserole recipe ditches the tedious work of rolling up your enchiladas. Instead, you only have to add your ingredients in layers in a casserole dish and bake.

Now that I have this recipe, I rarely make regular enchiladas anymore, because these taste just as good and save me a whole lot of time and effort!

Easy Enchilada Casserole Recipe

Ingredients: 

1 lb. hamburger
1/2 medium sized onion diced
1 small can of diced green chilis
1 can enchilada sauce
4-6 flour tortillas
3 cups sharp cheddar cheese
 
Topping ingredients: 
Sour Cream
Black olives

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!

Then 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 top with lettuce, sour cream, or whatever you and your family enjoy!!
