Enchilada Casserole

The Best Casserole Ever!

This casserole is the best ever! It is delicious and super versatile  The recipe below feeds 4-6, but it can easily be cut in half or double. You can easily omit ingredients or add more in and it has always been delicious. You can eat it as a taco salad, or you can do what we do and pair it with Fritos scoops corn chips and eat it more like a dip. I have used tortilla chips as well, and that was yummy too. It really is just a dump it in and good it kind of thing. I know that the picture is gross looking,

What you need:

  • 1 large can red enchilada sauce  (or 2 small cans)
  • 2 can black beans, drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn (I use sweet white corn)
  • 1 small can diced green chilies, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup cheese (I did the Colby/Monterrey jack blend)
  • 1/2 pound of ground beef (you could use more if you like things more meaty)
  • 1 bag fritos scoops corn chips, or other chips for serving.
Optional Toppings:
Sour Cream
salt/pepper to taste

What you do:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown the ground beef in a skillet.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the drained black beans, frozen corn, green chilies, and cheese.
  4. When the ground beef has been browned, add the beef to bowl and gently combine.
  5. Pour in your desired amount of enchilada sauce. I pour in enough until everything is saucy, but not soupy.
  6. Pour into a 9×13 casserole dish or two 8×8 dishes. The picture shown above is an 8×8 dish because my husband can’t eat dairy, so I made him his own dish without cheese.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (uncovered)or until warmed thorugh. You will notice it bubbling on the outside edges.
  8. Garnish with cheese, sour cream, quac and scoop with the fritos. YUMMY!
As I said before, this recipe is really versatile  You can eat this mix inside burritos, make a taco salad, or eat as we do with the corn chips. Enjoy!
