cost per recipe: $12.33
Heat the oven to 400°F. Stir the beans and corn in a medium bowl.
Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat. Stir in the picante sauce and chili powder.
Arrange 2 tortillas in the bottom of a 2-quart casserole. Top with half the beef mixture, bean mixture, soup and cheese. Repeat the layers. Cover the casserole.
Bake for 25 minutes or until hot. Sprinkle with the cilantro.
Overall a great, easy recipe to make. I loved it and it was good as leftovers the next day too!
Instead of chili powder I used a taco seasoning pack and put it in with all ingredients so everything was in the one skillet for even coating. I also layered in pinto beans and the tortillas at top and then added the cheese. When it was done I added sour cream and NO HEAT Jalepenos to the top. EVERYONE loved it.
My family loved this recipe. I tweaked it some though. I spread refried beans on the tortillas. Instead of chili powder (I didn't have any#, I browned the meat with a packet of taco seasoning, added the cheese soup to the drained beef. I have extreamly picky eaters in my house, so I forgoed the picante and used taco sauce #it worked awesome#. Tonight I am going to make it again and try it with corn tortillas #to make it more like enchaladas) and chicken. Oh! I also baked mine at 350 for about 15 minutes :-)
Cheesy Enchilada Torte
We absolutely love this recipe! My kids do too! I usually add one more layer of tortillas across the top with shredded cheddar or mexican fiesta cheese- much better that way not as "meaty" as the original. I do not use the chilli powder, and add the cheddar cheese soup to the meat and salsa in the pan to mix more evenly. Also I cook it in the oven on 350 for 15 minutes instead of the microwave. Fantastic recipe, easy to make, and fast!
I used less tortillas because i thought it was too much and i think the chili was a bit excessive. Next time i will use less chili.
