Step 3

Bake at 400° for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly. Serve casserole with desired toppings.

Step 4

This wasn't bad, nor was it good. I followed the recipe (although I did consider using cream of chicken soup, rather than cream of mushroom). I used a medium-heat enchilada sauce and tortillas with green chiles for some extra oomph, but there was not much complexity to the dish for it to matter. Although it was ok, I will not make it again.

I made this for a potluck yesterday and the dish was almost LICKED CLEAN! The only thing I changed was I used Artisan Whole Wheat and Black Bean tortillas (in place of the corn tortillas) and I minced a little fresh cilantro up and stirred it in. THIS IS WONDERFUL and easy to whip up!!!

VERY quick and easy. Like another reviewer, I added a can of black beans, which we think was a great addition. Couldn't be easier, and the dish was very tasty!

This is a staple dinner for our family. I use more green chilis, add a drained/rinse can of black beans and use about 1/2 the amount of cheese it calls for. I just sprinkle it on top instead of mixing it in; the casserole is creamy enough without it. Also, use light cream of mushroom, sour cream and cheese. It is delicious and people always ask for the recipe.
