Enchilada Casserole

Taco Tuesday with a twist. Say that 10 times fast…

This hot beef filled casserole is fantastic. It takes no time to make and it tastes great!

What you need,

1 lb. ground beef
1 tsp. homemade taco spice
1-284ml can enchilada sauce
1 cup salsa
6 flour tortillas
2 cups corn, fresh or frozen
4 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
Sour cream for serving

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish lightly with non-stick spray and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium high heat cook the ground beef until no longer pink and well browned. Drain off any excess fat.

Sprinkle on the taco spice and stir around to combine. Add in the enchilada sauce and salsa.  Stir in the corn.

Layer the tortillas in a single layer on the bottom of the prepared pan.
Cover the tortillas with 1/3 of the beef mixture and 1/3 of the cheese. Continue layering the tortillas, beef and cheese to create a total of 3 layers.

Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes until hot and bubbly.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a nice side salad.

We really enjoyed this Taco Tuesday twist! It would be great with the addition of some black beans or some chopped jalapeno.

You could top it with some shredded lettuce and chopped tomato instead of making a salad if you wanted, it would be wonderful!
