Chilaquiles Casserole

June/July 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4 (1155 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...

I have made this twice now and my husband and I both love it! The first time I reduced the amount of sauce since some reviews said it was too soggy, but I found it to be too dry and bland. The second time I used 20oz of verde sauce, diced the zucchini for extra crunch, rinsed all canned veggies, and otherwise followed the directions. It was perfect! I love how this recipe has a great Tex Mex flavor but due to the extra veggies and lack of meat and grease, it does not leave you feeling disgustingly full afterwards like eating at a Mexican restaurant!

We loved this for dinner AND breakfast the next day. To avoid some of the sogginess that others mentioned, I drained the excess liquid that was released in the process of cooking the veggies - almost half a cup - before layering the ingredients. I also used regular, not lowfat cheese. Making it in the morning and cooking it at dinner time worked really well.

Really good and easy! I added chicken for protein and jalapenos for kick, and only used half as much enchilada sauce.

I just made this tonight and it was great! I have zucchini coming out of my ears so I put in a large zuchini from the garden and used a slotted spoon to put in the pan. Top with fat free plain yogurt. Yum!

I thought this meal was excellent! The recipe was extremely easy to follow and tasted wonderful. My entire family including my husband, who turns his nose up at anything vegetarian, loved this dish. My husband even had seconds! Only change made was that I toasted the tortillas before putting them into the baking dish.
