I was able to obtain 10 packages of flour tortillas for free this past week, so guess what was on the menu? Anything and everything I could come up with that would make use of them. Fortunately my first invention turned out quite well. Just a note though, this recipe will make TWO casserole dishes full. So serve one for dinner and put another in the freezer for that night you don’t feel like cooking. I like how this recipe extends the chicken which I’m planning on being “precious” in a time of need. The heat level of this recipe will be determined by the spice level of your chosen enchilada sauce. I liked how this one turned out because it wasn’t the same ole, same ole enchilada casserole. Enjoy!
Spicy Spaniard Enchilada Casserole
1 can of corn, drained
1 1/2 cups of shredded chicken
1 can of black beans, drained
1 can of tomato soup
2 regular sized cans of red enchilada sauce
1 can of cream of chicken soup
16 flour tortillas (the soft taco size, not the gigantic burrito size)
4 cups of preferred shredded cheese (I like cheddar or Mexican blend)
In a separate bowl, mix together the enchilada sauce, cream of chicken soup, and tomato soup.
Spray two 9 x 13” casserole dishes with non-stick spray. Take one tortilla shell and place about 1 tablespoon of the sauce mixture down the middle of it. (if there is a longer part of your tortilla, do it down the longest part.) Top with 2 tablespoons of the rice/chicken mixture, then top with about 1 tablespoon of the cheese. Roll up and place seam side down in the casserole dish. Repeat this until you fill each casserole dish with eight filled tortillas each. Then top the enchiladas equally with the remaining sauce and then top equally with the remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until it’s bubbling and the cheese is well melted.
