I get great reviews every time I serve this—even from my father, who usually doesn't like Mexican food. It smells delicious while baking. —Nancy VanderVeer, Knoxville, Iowa

Test Kitchen Tips
  • If you like authentic Mexican flavor, corn tortillas will sub in seamlessly.
  • This recipe was made for mix-ins. We especially love to layer in black beans and corn for a nutritious boost.

    "My ex-mother-in-law made a casserole similar to this one. She usually made it in 2 smaller casserole dishes - one mild and the other one would blow your doors off but she never had corn in it. Thanks for sharing the recipe."

    "Kids thought it was ok, I didn't like it. Not much flavor, Tortillas are soggy and difficult to cut. Will stick with regular enchiladas"

    "This was pretty excellent except for the corn, it was just too much. I followed the recipe exactly. I used fire roasted corn from the frozen section at Whole Foods. I would reduce the amount of corn next time."

    "Great recipe for a quick and easy weeknight meal! I love the flexibility of this casserole, as you can add or subtract ingredients based on your family's tastes. I added green chiles and black beans to mine."

    "This tasted great the first time I ate it. It doesn't reheat well at all, unless you like soggy tortillas. As long as you don't care about leftovers recipe taste great."

    "Great starter recipe. I made it a second time and added taco seasoning, diced chilies and a can of Ro-tel along with the enchilada sauce to the beef mixture and let it simmer. When I put it together, I added a can of drained and rinsed black beans and Mexican corn over the beef mixture. Made a great recipe even better. This recipe is so versatile and can be easily altered to individual tastes and preferences."

    "easy to make and tastes great. The only change I made was the addition of green chiles to the meat mixture. I think this recipe can be flexible, so next time I may add some refried beans. Thanks for such a good recipe."
