One of the recipes I was told I MUST try was for the Enchilada Casserole. I am going to list the recipe as I made it. I had a few changes.
1 - 10 oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained, then squeezed of excess water
1 1/2 cooked and drained ground beef
1/2 white onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 - 14 oz diced Mexican style tomatoes
1 - 8 oz can tomato sauce
1 - 4 oz. can diced green chilies
Juice of 1 lime
10 (6 inch) corn tortillas, quartered
1/2 cup butter melted
2 - 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Saute onions and garlic. Add to ground beef along with cumin, red pepper, spinach, undrained tomatoes, tomato sauce, green chilies, and lime juice. Stir until combined. Simmer, covered for about 10 minutes.
Dip the tortilla quarters in the melted butter. Arrange 1/2 of the tortillas in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Spread with 1/2 of the ground beef mixture and sprinkle with half of the cheese. Layer with remaining tortillas, sour cream, remaining ground beef mixture and remaining cheese and bake for 30 minutes.
THIS IS DELICIOUS! ENJOY!
