I read practically all 100+ reviews of this recipe and couldn't wait to get home to make it. I added 1 lb ground turkey and chopped my zucchini instead of grating it but pretty much stuck to the recipe for everything else. It was easy to make and delicious! My boyfriend and I loved it but he refused to believe it was healthy.

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.

I too, read the reviews and added 1 lb of turkey, canned green chili's, fresh diced jalopeno's, garlic and some salsa and layered the tortilla's instead of slicing them. To the bottom layer of tortilla's I also added (1) of refried beans. Husband said this is a definite keeper and to put into "The Rotation" .
this dish was awesome because i added some things.. like some reviews said(**reviews are a great way to see if the dish is worth making***)
i did add :3 garlis cloves, minced.. ground turkey( i added about 1/2 pd. but next time a pound would be great..instead of(yellow)frozen corn i used WHITE frozen corn this makes a BIG difference and it's worth the extra money AND the bag i bought had 3 xtra oz. so i used the entire bag..a small can if chopped green chiles (not drained)..3 tsp chili powder and most important i kept the tortilla's WHOLE i didnt cut them up leaving them whole keeps the layers together next time i will add a small chopped jalapeno because i like heat... worth making!!! this is a keeper....my family loved it...
This was delicious & my family love love loved it! I made some changes after reading the other reviews. I added ground turkey, chopped green & red bell peppers & a clove of crushed garlic. I also mixed the vegetables, meat & enchilada sauce together. Made it easier to spread on the tortillas. I used more cheese than called for also.
