I love casseroles especially when it’s cold outside. The smell permeates the house and makes everything smell warm and cozy. This one is like a taco and an enchilada all in one – layered like lasagna and it’s so easy to make! Check it out!

Here’s How to Do it:

Preheat the oven to 300°.

Brown the meat in a heavy skillet and add the taco seasoning packet and the water. Simmer until the liquid evaporates. Set aside.

Grate the cheese and get all the other ingredients ready.

Now start the layers. First, just a tad of the enchilada sauce on the bottom.

Lay the tortillas on the bottom of an 8X8 pan. These are the lasagna “noodles”.

Cover them with beans,

then some meat

and some cheese. Then a little sauce.

Repeat.
