We love this casserole. It is much requested by friends and family for potlucks. Green sauce is our favorite, but love red sauce too. We use the leftovers to fill omelettes. Sometimes I leave out the black beans and make a pot of fresh pintos w/jalapenos as a side dish. Good eats!

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.

Outstanding! I used four fresh tomatoes, diced, rather than canned and diced yellow squash rather than grated zucchini. My enchilada sauce only came in a 14 oz can, so I used that (red sauce) and a small 8 oz can of salsa verde. Added 8 oz of baked, seasoned chicken tenders (diced). This will be a "go to" brunch recipe with scrambled eggs with chives, fresh fruit and a blueberry sweet bread. Yum!
I have made my enchiladas like this for years so I thought you might be interested in another variation using canned tomatillos drained and mashed use the liquid to mix with McCormick enchlada dry mix to add to the gravy especially good to liven up chicken or turkey
Everyone loves this dish -- and it is easy so I love it too!
