Enchilada Casser-Ole!

My husband loves this casserole, but it never lasts too long. Packed with black beans, cheese, tomatoes and plenty of Southwest flavor, it's an impressive entree that's as simple as it is simply delicious. —Marsha Wills, Homosassa, Florida

    Super quick and easy family meal! Entire family loves this recipe and it’s even great for leftovers! We prefer the flour tortillas it many have recommended corn if you’re a fan! I did not add the sour cream as my son and his dad hate it, it still turned out fantastic! Definitely printing out a copy for my recipient books!

    Great recipe! Everyone loves it and it's easy to make. I've tried the recipe using flour tortillas and with corn tortillas. Both ways are good, but my family prefers it with the corn tortillas.

    Oh my goodness this was good. I didn't have any ground meat but I had leftover brisket and it was perfect!!

    Basically followed original recipe...however we preferred a bit more lettuce, tomato, etc. This is fun because you CAN make little adjustments to your family's liking and it is still AMAZING! Sorry, but even a little "mushy" I don't see how it would ruin the taste or make it gross. If it boiled over in your oven, and you used a 11"x7" Pyrex, it is because the recipe calls for an 11"x17"pan. Usually things boil over if your pan is too small OR your oven cooks too hot. My family thought it was great...I thought it was nutritious (hidden!), and we had fun all making it together.

    My husband and I didn’t like it because of the flour tortillas. Should use corn tortillas. He thought bottom tortillas were hard from the baking. I had leftovers next day and the tortillas were mushy, pretty gross. Also, it bubbled over onto the bottom of my oven the last 5-10 minutes, uncovered, in an 11x7 Pyrex.

    Oh so very good. The leftovers were even better. I highly recommend.

    Great recipe! My family loves things cheesy so I added more cheese and sour cream.
