This is a fabulous casserole! I doubled the cumin and added the enchilada sauce to the vegetable mixture and cooked everything together. I also added 1/2 tsp crushed chipotle pepper and 2 tsp Mexican oregano. I didn't drain the tomatoes; next time I will dice them finer or use Rotel and omit the chipotles. It was even better the next day! I am going to freeze some to see how it holds up. This will be a perfect dish for my monthly potluck group! Thanks, Eating Well, for such a delicious recipe!

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.

This is a family hit! My not-so-healthy extended family members even love this recipe. I always use green sauce since we don't really love red enchilada sauce and sometimes add a jalapeno to kick it up!
It is very tasty, I have 5 kids from ages 5-16 and they loved it wanting more. The only thing I did different was add mild green chillis and I used stone ground corn tortilla for a more authentic tortilla that gives it a thicker and more authentic taste.
Love this recipe. So easy, and delicious -- hard to believe it's so healthy. I cut the enchilada sauce in half and added tomato sauce in place of the other half to cut back on spiciness (for my young kids). Also used canned sweet corn. Just perfect!
This is not how i was shown to make Chilaquiles and we just made it on Sunday... We had it with fried corn tortilla, tomato and chili sauce, and white and chedder cheese. It was topped with avacado and sour cream. We also added scrambled egg because we made it as a breakfast meal. It didnt have veggies...and it didnt look anything like your picture. The recipe i was shown was great. The first time I had it my friend added chicken instead of egg for a dinner meal.
