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 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...

As a San Diego native now living in Massachusetts, I make all our mexican food as I haven't found any good restaurants serving authentic mexican food. I added a diced jalapeno, one-half a red pepper and extra cumin. Added hot sauce at the table

Low calorie, great taste

I made this exactly as the recipes states and it was wonderful! It was so good that it was hard to stick to the portion size...I wanted more!

Easy to make
Chilaquiles Casserole

A delicious tasting casserole enjoyed by the family butan agree with anonymous" I Live in New York City" and being from Southern California bypassing the all time favorite pinto and refried beans is unheard of, all of a sudden it's black beans in many of these Mexican recipes ? We omitted the black beans,chicken or beef makes for an excellent addition for this delicious meal ...

Excellent recipe...
Delicious with a few changes!

Very good, I live in Arizona and know how Mexican food should taste and this was delicious. I made a few changes that I think improved the flavor. Added three cloves of minced garlic and one jalapeno. Also added 1/2 tsp of coriander to the mix and a bit of salsa to the enchilada sauce. The biggest change was that I sprayed the corn tortillas with an oil spray and baked them in the oven until they were crisp that way they didn't completely turn to mush in the casserole. I really liked this and didn't miss the meat at all. But my husband who is a big time carnivore said the flavor was great but he wished I added some chicken or beef to it. Next time I will add a shredded chicken breast to make the hubby happy.

fast, tasty
Yummy with Chicken Too!

So easy to make, happy with results. Love veggies, but had leftover chicken and no I replaced zucchini with 2 cups of cooked chicken and it was splendid!!! Next time will probably add green chiles too. Oh my gosh...I just realized I forgot to put the cumin in...and it was still fantastic! Will definitely make again!

Easy, fast, yummy
