Easy To Prepare Mexican Dinner Casserole Recipes by Shelly Hill


Are you looking for a few great tasting Mexican style dinner recipes that your family will enjoy? Does your family enjoy enchiladas and tacos? If so, I think these two casserole recipes will be ones that your family will enjoy.

If preparation time is an issue for you, you can prepare them up ahead of time in the morning and refrigerate. Once dinner time arrives, remove them from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before placing them into the oven. If you have any left-overs you will need to refrigerate them in an airtight container for up to 3 days. These dishes do not freeze well, so please don’t freeze your leftovers.


Mexican Enchilada Casserole Recipe

1 lb. ground beef
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 envelope of enchilada sauce mix (purchase it near where the taco seasoning is sold)
8 (8″ round) flour tortillas
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1 container sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large frying pan, simmer the ground beef until it is no longer pink and it’s brown. Drain off any excess grease. Stir in the refried beans, tomato sauce, water and the envelope of enchilada sauce mix, bringing the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

Arrange half of the flour tortillas on the bottom of a 3 quart casserole dish or an oblong baking pan, overlapping them as you go along. Top with half of the ground beef mixture and half of the shredded cheddar cheese. Repeat with the remaining floured tortillas and remaining ground beef mixture.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove and sprinkle the remaining shredded cheddar cheese on top and place back into the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place a few dollops of sour cream on top before serving. This recipe will make 8 hearty servings.
