So as you know, we love Mexican food in our house! I love making taco casseroles and just casseroles in general, so simple and makes fabulous leftovers! I tried this casserole the other night and it was pretty good, the original recipe called it Enchilada Casserole, but to me it didn’t taste too “enchilada-y” so that’s why I changed the name. I hope you give this a shot, it’s really good and perfect for a weeknight meal 🙂
– 1 pound lean ground beef (to turkey)
– 1 medium onion, diced
– 1/2 tsp. pepper
– 1 Tbsp. chili powder
– 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
– 6 corn tortillas
– 1 (4 ounce) can sliced olives
– 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
– 1/4 cup water
Sour cream, salsa, hot sauce for garnishing
Preheat your oven to 400F. Brown ground beef and onion in a large saucepan. Drain the grease from the meat and add the chili powder, and tomato sauce to the pan.
Spray an 8×11-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Start by laying two tortillas down in the bottom of the pan so they’re overlapping slightly, then add a layer of the meat sauce, then a layer of olives, and then finally a layer of cheese. Repeat the layers three times. Pour the water over the top of the casserole and bake for 25 minutes, uncovered. Remove from oven and let sit a few minutes to firm up. Top with sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, etc.
