On Saturday we tried out a great new addition to the comfort food favorites! Enchilada Grande Casserole! By the way, we double the recipe since we have some pretty big appetites. This is very quick and tastes great!!
1 pound lean ground beef
1 – 16 oz can refried beans
1 – 15 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 – 1 3/8 oz package enchilada sauce mix
8 – 7 to 8 inch flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheddar or Mexican style cheese
Sour cream (optional for some)
Green onions (optional for some)
In a large pan brown hamburger and drain. Add the refried beans, tomato sauce, water, and enchilada sauce mix to the hamburger and simmer for 15 minutes.
In a greased cake pan layer half of the tortillas to cover the bottom. Add half of the meat mixture followed by 1 cup of cheese. Repeat layering the rest of the tortillas and the remaining meat mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree over. Add the remaining cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving! Add sour cream and green onions as desired!
Next time we’re going to add fresh tomatoes in between the layers and as a garnish on top!! Let me know if you try it and like it!!
