Easy Enchilada Bake

Image

This is my own variation of a favorite recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, The Pioneer Woman. We have never been able to make the enchilada’s without making a mess, probably because we just cannot find the quality of corn tortilla’s she gets. So we changed ours into a layered pie like a lasagna. We also changed a few steps and ingredients. We do not fry the tortilla’s since we are not rolling them. We have someone who does not like cilantro and someone who does not like black olives. So we dropped the cilantro completely and substitute the black olives with black beans. This is one of my families favorite meals and it is just as good reheated the next day as it was fresh and bubbling from the oven.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, add oil and flour and whisk together to make a paste, cooking for one minute. Pour in the red sauce, chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30-45 minutes.

The Meat

Image(We didn’t add the green chilies to the meat this time, we made them a part of the layers.)

Brown the meat with onions in a skillet. Drain off fat. Stir in green chilis and season salt and set aside.

Assembly

Image

Pour ½ cup red sauce in bottom of deep baking dish or lasagna pan. Spread to even out.

Image

Dip each tortilla into red sauce, then place in baking dish.
