The Kids Cook Monday - Enchilada Casserole

Another favorite around here! You don't have to use the refried beans, but a thin layer seems to really work well in this recipe.

Enchilada Casserole:
1lb ground beef
1 can tomato soup
1 can enchilada sauce
1 can refried beans
shredded cheese
soft tortillas
garlic, onion, etc for the beef

Saute the ground beef with onion, garlic, etc, drain.
Mix together soup & enchilada sauce, add to beef, simmer.
At the bottom of a casserole dish, place a layer of tortillas (I actually use scissors and trim mine to fit into the corners ;o) )
Spread refried beans over tortillas, sprinkle with cheese.
Spread most of the meat mixture over top, reserving a bit of meat and most of the liquid), sprinkle with cheese.
Top with another layer of tortilla.
Cover with reserved liquid, sprinkle with more cheese.
Bake covered at 350 for about 30 minutes, until heated through. Remove cover for last 5 minutes to melt cheese.

Serve with sour cream, guacamole, extra salsa, etc.

**You can also roll individual enchiladas with this recipe, then pour the rest of the sauce on top to bake, but I'm entirely too lazy to do that. It tastes exactly the same with much less work.
