Chilaquiles Casserole

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...

To avoid sogginess use a slotted spoon to add the vegetables to the casserole. Another great veggie addition is cauliflower!


Delicious. Followed recipe with the exception of doubling zucchini, adding 8 ounces of shredded chicken, and garlic. Did not have a problem with sogginess as I let casserole sit for 10 minutes before slicing. We are looking forward to the leftovers.


I made this tonight and OMG, was it amazing!


I've made this 4 times and haven't had any issue with sogginess. I use green enchilada sauce, double the zucchini and add 8-12 oz shredded chicken. I've also used green onion in place of regular onion. It's delicious and keeps very well! I made it once without the diced tomatoes for a guest who does not like them, and the flavor was still wonderful. This is a recipe I've been happy to pass along to family and friends.


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!
