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.

  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 Mar. 3, 2011

I made this for the freezer meal swap I do with 3 other friends. We have smaller families so I split each 13 x 9" casserole into two 8 x 8 dishes. I left out the jalapeno since my kids won't eat really spicy stuff. It was good! Everyone in my family ate it. My biggest problem was since I was dividing the recipe into four portions, I didn't put enough tortilla pieces on each one and had leftover tortillas at the end. I will remember that for next time!
