One Pan Enchilada Casserole

A few weeks ago, I had done my meal planning, and had bought all the ingredients for my Enchilada Casserole recipe. The night that I was supposed to make it, I was completely exhausted, but didn’t really want to order a pizza.

So, as I like to do sometimes, I made up something new. Thankfully, it worked and it was just as good as it is the other way. My favorite part about cooking it this way is that I only get one pan dirty, and I am not doing dishes all night. (Have I mentioned how much I hate doing dishes?)

Here is the new version of the recipe:

One Pan Enchilada Casserole

Servings: 6


  • 1 bag of yellow or white corn tortillas
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 16 oz. can enchilada sauce
  • 1 lb browned ground beef or shredded chicken
  • 1 8 oz bag shredded cheese such as Jack Colby Jack, Mexican Blend, or Cheddar
  • Sour Cream Avocado Slices, Guacamole, etc.


  • On medium high heat, brown the ground beef. (or just add your cooked shredded chicken)
  • Turn your burner down to low.
  • Add the black beans
  • Pour in the enchilada sauce
  • Cut all of the tortillas into 1/2 inch thick strips.
  • Stir all of the tortilla strips into the mixture.
  • Add about 1/2 cup of cheese and stir until melted.
  • It is that easy!!


Tell me what you think of my lazy creation! I would love to have your feedback!
