Enchilada Lasagna

This is the best enchilada lasagna casserole we have for dinner often that my kids absolutely love! If you're looking for a baked cheesy casserole packed with lots of flavor and ground beef that is easy to throw together, this is it. Layered with Mexican flavors and corn tortillas it's like an enchilada met a lasagna!

Ingredients

  • 12 tortillas small corn
  • 1 can Manwich 15 oz.
  • 1 can corn drained
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can diced tomatoes I like using petite
  • 1 small can diced chiles we use mild but you could use hotter
  • 1/4 onion diced
  • 3-4 c cheese we use 4 for the whole thing
  • 1 lbs ground beef

Instructions

  • Brown your meat on the stovetop with your diced onions. 
  • Add meat and all of the other ingredients (excluding tortillas and cheese) into a bowl and mix well. 
  • Spray a 9x12" dish with non stick spray and add a small layer of your meat mixture. 
  • Then add 6 tortillas overlapping a bit so it covers your meat layer. Sprinkle 1 c. of cheese on top of tortilla layer. 
  • Add another layer of meat mixture, then another tortilla layer, cheese on top of that, and then last top layer is the remainder (1/3 on each layer) of your meat mixture. 
  • Cover with tinfoil and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Take foil off and sprinkle last 3/4-1 c. of cheese and bake for 10 more minutes uncovered. Serve! Could add a dollop of sour cream on top and chives too!
  • If you want it to stay together like lasagna and come out in a less messy way allow it to cool for about 15 minutes when it comes out before cutting...but either way it is delicious.
