Chilaquiles Casserole

June/July 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4 (1154 votes)

Our version of this enchilada-style chilaquiles casserole is packed with nutritious beans and vegetables. Canned prepared enchilada sauce has great flavor and keeps the prep time quick. It can vary in heat level so find one that suits your taste. If you want to eliminate the heat altogether, try a green enchilada sauce (which is often milder than red) or substitute two 8-ounce cans of plain tomato sauce.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I live in New York City where the "Mexican" food is abysmal, because there is too much Caribbean influence here. I am originally from Southern California and I miss what I consider to be the good Mexican stuff. But why are black beans so...

Yummy

Very delicious and good for you!! I added shredded chicken, and layered it on top of the veggie mix. I also did 2 cans of tomatoes. My husband, brother, mom, and friends LOVED it! It made a full 9x13 pan. It was almost overflowing. I have none left after tonight! I will definitely make this again in the near future.

My honey LOVED this. He said he's looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. He was quite surprised when I told him it had zucchini, and he didn't even notice the corn. I reduced the corn by half (because he doesn't like corn), and used more zucchine. I didn't have black beans, so I used a can of black bean soup (Progresso). I didn't have canned diced tomatoes, so I used a jar of mild chunky salsa (Pace), draining off most of the liquid. I added a tsp of dried cilantro, and chopped up pepper jack cheese slices. I will save this in my favorites recipe folder, I will make this again. I calculated svg to be under 250 calories.

ingredients usually on hand, easy substitutions

Simple and Tasty Mexican Dish!

I was looking for a good Mexican casserole recipe and found this. I am not vegetarian and prefer meat in almost all my dishes so I omitted the zucchini and added ground beef. This was so simple to put together and had very short cook time, which I enjoy because my schedule usually leaves me not wanting to spend much time in the kitchen when I get home. Also, I usually have all of these things on hand around the kitchen and if I don't have one or two things, all the ingredients are easy to pick up at a low price. I think this is a great recipe all around!

short cook time, basic ingredients usually on hand, great for leftovers

Definitely do again!

Great dish, just add a salad and you have a meal. I added garlic with the onions and mixed a can of green chilies in with the enchilada sauce cause my hubby likes things VERY tasty. A great dish to make in advance and maybe even take to a pot luck meal. You could also add some cooked chicken or turkey or the soy recipe-ready crumbles if you want more protein.

Can do before hand, usually have most ingredients on hand, tastes great

Wow! Very good!

I made my own enchilada sauce using a touch of olive oil, tomato paste, canned chipotle peppers, a minced fresh cayenne chile and cumin & chile powder. I also added an additional layer of green tomatillo salsa (made by stewing the tomatillos with garlic, minced onion and serrano pepper.) I imagine this would still be very tasty with the original recipe. Will definitely make again and can't wait for leftovers tomorrow night. Oh, I also served this with a fennel, cabbage and red onion slaw. Perfection.

Flavorfull, Filling, Vegetarian
