REC - Enchilada Casserole (TNT)
One of the recent topics about taco casserole reminded me of this recipe. It is a family favorite and is good for potlucks or other get togethers. If you like your dishes hotter or milder increase or reduce the amount of chili powder. I have also added a 4 oz. can of diced green chilies to the recipe.
2 lbs. browned ground beef, drained
2 – 14 ½ oz. cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup water
2 tablespoon chili powder
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 packages 6” corn tortillas (20)
Combine beef, tomatoes, water, chili powder, green pepper, and onion in large sauce pan. Bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Spray a 13”x9”x2” pan with cooking spray and line with a third of the tortillas. Top with third of meat sauce and third of the cheese. Repeat layers, reserving the remaining third of the cheese. Bake covered in a 350º oven for 45 minutes. In the last 5 minutes of baking sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of casserole.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
