New Recipe: Enchilada Casserole

Happy Tasty Tuesday!
Sometimes I cook things that don't always look the most appetizing in photos but is actually quite delicious in real life---- the perfect example is the photo above! I was trying to attempt to take photos at different angles and even when I served it on a plate is still would not photograph well but I promise you if you're a fan of Mexican food you will love this because this meal was very tasty and even easier to make.


  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 large package of wheat tortillas
  • 1 can chopped black olives
  • 1/2 jalapeƱos (optional)
  • 1 10oz can of cream of chicken soup
  • 1 10 oz can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 10 oz can of enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 lb shredded pepper jack cheese (I buy a block of cheese at the store and grate it at home-- it adds better flavor).
  • 1 can diced green chilies
  • Salsa and guacamole for dipping (optional)


  • Cook the ground beef and onion on a stovetop until beef is well done.
  • While beef is cooking grate the cheese and set aside. 
  • Cut wheat tortillas into strips (see photo) and set aside.
  • In a bowl, mix together the 2 soups, enchilada sauce, olives, jalapeƱos, and chilies.
  • Add ground beef mixture to bowl and stir so everything is evenly mixed.
  • In a casserole dish, alternate layering tortillas, ground beef mixture and cheese (similar to making a lasagne) until all the ingredients are gone.
  • Bake in the oven for 1 hour.
  • Garnish with salsa and guacamole.
  • Enjoy!



  1. okay i have been pinning some recipes like this recently..totally trying this--LOOKS SO GOOD!

  2. Who cares about beauty?! It's all about taste! So happy you realize that & we want to try it! We're vegetarians, so we'll have to do without the beef..but maybe we'll just substitute with vegetarian "meat!"
