Recipe: Enchilada Casserole


This week I made Enchilada Casserole. It's my moms recipe that she used to make when I was a kid. It's one of my favorite meals to make. I also make a Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe and this is the same recipe except with 2 lbs of hamburger instead of chicken. 

It's easy to make. You will need: 

2 lbs of cooked hamburger
16 low carb corn tortillas
1 large can (28 ozs)  Macayos enchilada sauce
1 lb grated cheddar cheese
2 tsp. diced green chilis
1 can whole black olives, sliced

Lay 8 corn tortillas in the bottom of a pan. Spoon over a little sauce and then a layer of the remaining ingredients. Then lay corn tortillas down on top of that and alternate layers of the rest of the ingredients. 

I only use a little of the diced green chilis because they are spicy and I don't like to make it overly spicy. Add more if you like it really spicy.

Cover with foil and Bake in a 350 F oven for 45 minutes. 



I always make a big pan of it because it's great as leftovers the next day for lunch. 

Have you ever made anything like this?

  2. I do like the sort of dishes where the left-overs are better than the original dish. Most casseroles and curries fall into that category. And my lazy self loves it.

  12. Looks good but I am curious about low carb tortillas. How many carbs do they have?
