Chilaquiles Casserole

June/July 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4 (1163 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...

Have made this several times and it is always delicious and filling. I don't use onion, so I add an extra can of black beans and I sometimes add some chili powder. Otherwise I make exactly as the recipe states.

An easy full meal

We left out the zucchini squash it is too watery and tasteless. Rather than the canned tomatoes we used about 8 chopped roma tomatoes and we used leeks rather than onions. We used Lentils and left out the beans. I only had Swiss Cheese so it was used and tasted great. We used the whole wheat tortillas and crumbled Frito's on top of the cheese topping. Easy.
We added Tuna for the protein and they were really good.
just like the ones you get in Mexico City. We also used a lot of parsley on the top for great color.
Served with alot of quac.

That sounds disgusting.

That sounds disgusting. Swiss cheese, whole wheat tortillas, leeks, tuna, fritos and parsley? That is the furthest thing from authentic Mexican I have ever seen. Have you ever been to Mexico?

You did not even make this

You did not even make this recipe, you made so many changes!
It is no longer vegetarian, since you added tuna. Contrary to what many people seem to think, fish are not vegetables.

So...the only thing your

So...the only thing your creation had in common with this recipe was the oil, the cumin, the corn, and whatever can of sauce you selected. Yet you knocked a star off the recipe rating.

But thanks, for when I want a new way to cook a tuna, lentil, leek, Swiss cheese and Frito casserole, I'll be sure to use this recipe.

Don't know a Chiliquilly from a tortilla but great

Never heard of this type of food until now. Thought I would give it a whirl. Made the baisic recipe but added
ground sirlon for the meat. We don't like beans so left them out. Used the frozen corn and lima bean mix to be authentic. I used Velveta Cheese everyone loves it. We tried the sauces and used the red and had the green on the side. I made some nice Angel Hair pasta for the side dish which was very good with the sauces and velveta.
As a California native it tasted very authentic to us. We also had a very nice Anti-Pasto with it rather than a salad.
We all loved it.

Fast to put together. Healthy and guests loved it

19 0z Enchilada Sauce too much!

I've made this many times, but I never used 19oz can of enchilada sauce because it wasn't available. I had that size this time, and it was a huge mistake! The casserole was much too soupy. The smaller sized can of sauce seems sufficient.

It is a great casserole! Delicious for breakfast with an egg on top. I think adding cilantro would be nice!
