Directions

  1. Cut tortillas into eighths; set aside. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef, onions and jalapeno over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Stir in the black-eyed peas, soups, tomatoes, enchilada sauce and pepper sauce; heat through.
  2. Spread 2-2/3 cups meat mixture into each of two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes. Top each with 2 cups cut tortillas. Repeat layers. Top with remaining meat mixture; sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Cover and freeze one casserole for up to 3 months. Cover and bake the remaining casserole at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
  4. To use frozen casserole: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Cover and bake at 350° for 55 minutes. Uncover; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 2 casseroles (8 servings each).
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2014

"I've made this casserole several times, but like it best with black beans. Also, your choice of enchilada sauce will drastically alter the flavor of the finished product. We really like the line of Rick Bayless sauces, sold in pouches in the Mexican/Asian aisle at the grocery store. It's not the cheapest but it is very flavorful, and worth the money. (No connection to Rick Bayless - I just like his red enchilada sauce.) A green salad along side is nice for some texture, and a side of sour cream helps if you got carried away with the hot pepper sauce. Five star comfort food!"
