Mexican Casserole #2

Mexican casseroleMexican Casserole without Cheese

There are so many ways to make a Mexican casserole, and as you can see, I am not creative with names. These casseroles always seem to be a big hit, though. Here’s another one my family likes.

I originally made this recipe using cheese.  Now that I am dairy free, I omit the cheese and sometimes sprinkle on some nutritional yeast.  I serve it hot and provide cheese at the table for those who want it.

Some enchilada sauces do contain gluten.  I used Old El Paso, but ingredients can change.  Always read the label carefully.

    Can’t really go wrong with a casserole. Especially with those seasonings. Thanks for the great idea.

    Love Mexican dishes! This looks great. I’ve made similar dishes by using refried beans, too.

    Looks great, we ate nacho’s recently and I’ve got a load of beans in the crock pot so I’ll have to try them with this recipe.

  4. Sounds easy to put together. This is sort of a cross between an enchilada casserole and nachos. Great idea! Thanks!

  5. Oh yum! My family goes for ANYTHING Mexican! This looks great…and easy too!

    I think I will add black beans and corn as the bean you suggested. It sounds yummy!
