For today's tasty Tuesday, I thought I'd let you try my mom's recipe for Enchilada Casserole. It is wonderful. You can use this recipe as a guide and add more or less of the ingredients, depending on how much you want to make.
Yesterday I went to someones blog and took a "fats test" needless to say I scored really bad. I had only 3 out of 10 answers right. Basically I don't know my good fats from my bad fats and boy does my body show it. I'm not quite sure where this recipe falls in the different fat categories but it sure is good.
Just to let you all know every recipe we post, yes we have tried. I wouldn't want to post something we ourselves have not tried before.
What you will need:
1-2 lbs of Ground Beef
1-package of corn Tortillas
1-2 lg cans of Enchilada Sauce
1/2 cup Green Onions(chopped)
1 can of Olives (if you like them, I don't use these)
1-package of Cheese
Oil (Yikes, this sounds like alot of fat)
Preheat oven to 375
Heat oil in large pot, enough to soften all the tortillas (not drenched in oil but just enough to soften. Cook ground beef until no loner pink (season beef to taste), drain and set aside. Cut up the tortillas into triangular pieces, not too big. When oil is heated and place cut tortillas in heated oil until all are soft. Add ground beef, onions and olives if you are using them, and mix well. Add your enchilada sauce, use enough so that it is not dry, generally I use more so it is a little on the wet side-since you will be baking it a few minutes. Stir in your cheese. Place in casserole pan and top with additional cheese. Bake until cheese has melted and there you have it.
