Chilaquiles Casserole

Your rating: None Average: 4 (1198 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.

"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...

Mexican Meatless Yumminess

I was a little skeptical of how this would turn out when I was filling my casserole dish, but I was pleasantly suprised. I did modify by omitting the corn and used a can of fire-roasted tomatoes rather than plain, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. It was great!! I love this because it's easy to keep all the ingredients on hand so this may become a staple for us.

Quick, Tasty, & Lots of Veggies

Very delicious and good for you!! I added shredded chicken, and layered it on top of the veggie mix. I also did 2 cans of tomatoes. My husband, brother, mom, and friends LOVED it! It made a full 9x13 pan. It was almost overflowing. I have none left after tonight! I will definitely make this again in the near future.


My honey LOVED this. He said he's looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. He was quite surprised when I told him it had zucchini, and he didn't even notice the corn. I reduced the corn by half (because he doesn't like corn), and used more zucchine. I didn't have black beans, so I used a can of black bean soup (Progresso). I didn't have canned diced tomatoes, so I used a jar of mild chunky salsa (Pace), draining off most of the liquid. I added a tsp of dried cilantro, and chopped up pepper jack cheese slices. I will save this in my favorites recipe folder, I will make this again. I calculated svg to be under 250 calories.

ingredients usually on hand, easy substitutions
Simple and Tasty Mexican Dish!

I was looking for a good Mexican casserole recipe and found this. I am not vegetarian and prefer meat in almost all my dishes so I omitted the zucchini and added ground beef. This was so simple to put together and had very short cook time, which I enjoy because my schedule usually leaves me not wanting to spend much time in the kitchen when I get home. Also, I usually have all of these things on hand around the kitchen and if I don't have one or two things, all the ingredients are easy to pick up at a low price. I think this is a great recipe all around!

short cook time, basic ingredients usually on hand, great for leftovers
