Cheesy Enchilada Casserole

Larry’s Easy Cheesy Enchilada Casserole is a delicious, no hassle version of baked enchiladas prepared by layering corn tortillas alternately with sauce, cheese, ground meat and black beans. Think of it as Mexican lasagna. This is really easy, my kids love it and it’s sure to become the new favorite casserole for your family.  I’ve used Larry’s All Natural Ranchero Taco and Enchilada Sauce in this recipe, but it also works well with Larry’s Chipotle or Mole Sauce.    

Ingredients

  • 1 16 oz jar Larry's All Natural Ranchero Taco and Enchilada Sauce
  • 8 soft corn tortillas
  • 1 tspn vegetable oil
  • 1/3 lb ground beef, chicken or turkey
  • 1/2 cup black or pinto beans
  • 2 cups grated cheddar or Monterrey jack cheese

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°. In a medium sauce pan heat the contents of one jar of Larry's All Natural Ranchero Taco and Enchilada Sauce.

Step 2

In a two quart baking dish, spoon a thin layer of warm on the bottom. Cover bottom with 1 layer of soft corn tortillas. You may need to cut the tortillas in half to fit to size of casserole dish.

Step 3

Heat the vegetable oil in a medium sized skillet and brown the ground meat, drain excess fat, then add the meat to the pan of warm Ranchero sauce. Stir in half a can of rinsed black beans.

Step 4

Spoon a layer of the meat and bean sauce over the first tortilla layer, then sprinkle with cheese. Cover with another layer of tortillas.

Step 5

Create another layer with cheese and shredded zucchini and cover with another layer of tortillas. Repeat these layers of sauce mix, zucchini and cheese ending with sauce and topped with shredded cheese.

Step 6

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the casserole is hot and bubbly.
