Beef Enchilada Casserole

cooked casserole

This was on the menu tonight and in the words of the boy – “Why don’t we have this more often?”  It was delicious and the recipe came from the Pampered Chef 29 minutes to dinner cookbook.

1 lb lean ground beef

1 tbsp. taco seasoning

1/4 tsp salt

1 can (10oz enchilada sauce)

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup medium thick salsa

12 (6 inch) corn tortillas

1/4 cup snipped, fresh cilantro

1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend

Combine beef, taco seasoning, and salt in a skillet.  Cook over medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink.  Add enchilada sauce, water and salsa to skillet.  Bring to a simmer and remove from heat.

2. As beef mixture cooks, place tortillas in  stack and cut into 1 in strips using a pizza cutter or sharp knife.  Snip cilantro into small pieces.

3. Place a little meat/sauce mixture (just enough to coat the bottom) in a baking pan, top with half of the tortilla strips, half of the remaining meat/sauce mix, half the cheese, and sprinkle 2 tbsp. of the cilantro over the cheese.  Add the rest of the tortilla strips, the remaining meat/sauce mix, the remaining cheese and the remaining cilantro.

4.  You can then microwave on high for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.  I baked this in the oven at 400 for about 15 minutes.

Serve with sour cream and lime wedges.  Enjoy!!!!!
