Southwestern Enchilada Casserole Recipe
Larry's Southwestern Enchilada Casserole is really a dish of baked enchiladas without the hassle of rolling the fillings in corn tortillas. Think of it as Mexican lasagna. This is really easy, my kids love it and I predict it will become the new favorite casserole for pot luck suppers. I've used Larry's Ranchero Sauce in this recipe, but feel free to use Larry's Chipotle Sauce or Larry's Mole Sauce instead.
1 16 oz. jar Larry's Southwestern Ranchero Sauce or your favorite enchilada sauce.
6 to 8 soft corn tortillas.
1 teaspoon vegetable oil.
1/3 lb. ground beef, chicken or turkey.
2 cups grated cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded zucchini
1. Preheat the oven to 350'
2. Add the vegetable oil to a medium sized pot and brown the ground meat.
3. Add Larry's Southwestern Ranchero Sauce to the pot and stir it into the ground meats.
4. In a two quart baking dish, place a spoonful of warm sauce mix to the bottom.
5. Place a corn tortilla on top of that. Sprinkle with cheese and zucchini. cover with another tortilla.
6. Repeat with the layers of sauce mix, cheese, zucchini and cheese ending with sauce mix over all and topped with cheese.
7. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the casserole is hot and bubbly.
Serves 4 to 6
