1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion chopped
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis (I like Ro*tel)
1 can of corn, or cooked fresh or frozen corn
1 can of black OR pinto beans
Enchilada sauce 1 large can (28 ounce) and one regular size 10 ounce can
Corn tortilla chips-CRUSHED one large bag-your favorite brand. Crush as you use them, you may not need the whole bag
Grated sharp cheddar cheese- at least 4 cups (or any combination of cheeses: Mexican, Colby, Mild Cheddar 2 8 ounce packages is approximately 4 cups
1 small can chopped green chilis
Black olives and sour cream for garnish
Preheat oven to 375
Brown ground beef with onion
Add large can of sauce and undrained chopped tomatoes; add corn and beans.
In bottom of greased 13×9 pan, add 1 cup of plain enchilada sauce
Layer with crushed tortilla chips, ½ of meat sauce mixture, cheese. Repeat layers. Top final layer of cheese with diced green chilis.
Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes until cheese is melted (and tortilla chips have softened into a crust.)
Serve with lettuce shreds, black olives, and sour cream on the side.
Home made Enchilada Sauce is very easy to make and there are several recipes online.
**If you prefer chicken enchilada casserole, substitute one pound of cooked and diced chicken breast for beef.
I hope you are all staying well.
I love you and miss you.
You know who you are.
