Beef Enchilada Casserole

Beef Enchilada Casserole

I make 2 versions of this. One with beef for my husband and one that subs black beans for myself, the Veggiesaurus.

1 lb ground beef
1 16 oz can pinto beans (optional)
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
6 (6in) corn tortillas
3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 can enchilada sauce
2 green onions
.....and if you like heat (like us!) you can add the following
1 can chopped green chilies
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook beef until browned over medium high heat. Drain add taco seasoning, cumin and cayenne, stirring well.

2. Grease an 8 in round casserole dish. Arrange half of corn tortillas over bottom. Layer with beef, chilies, 2 cups cheese and onion.

3. Arrange remaining tortillas over onion. Pour enchilada sauce over top. Bake until tortillas are soft and juices bubble, about 30-35 minutes.

4. Sprinkle remaining cheese over tortillas. Bake until cheese is bubbly, about 10 minutes. Top with green onions.


  1. Yummy! That looks super easy, too. Thanks!

  2. YUM!! Printing out this recipe now. :)

  3. this looks super tasty, gonna have to add this to the menu next week!!

  4. Looks really good. I don't care for enchilada sauce (weird, I know), but I'd bet that I can substitute salsa...thanks for sharing.

  5. so I have the same thing in my family...some meat eaters and some not! What do you do for the veggie version? this looks so yummy!!

  6. I think either version sounds awesome!

  7. I made this for dinner last night and it was a HUGE hit! I added black beans to the ground beef recipe (because I love black beans).

    Thanks so much for this great recipe!

  8. Melody, I prepare it the same, but I use black beans in place of the ground beef =)

  9. Looks delicious! Can't wait to try it!!!

  10. Sounds delish and I think we would like it both ways.....with meat or with the black beans! :)

  11. So I made this for dinner tonight and OMG it is so yummy, The only thing I did diffrent was a left out the veggies and added the beans inside. It was the best mexican food I have ever made
