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...

Simple and delicious

Added a half pound bag of salad shrimp for extra protein and used only 6 whole wheat tortilla wraps. otherwise followed the recipe exactly. You have to let the casserole sit for 10-15 minutes to let some of the water from the tomatoes absorb. Everyone loved this and couldn't believe how healthy and low calorie yet filling this is. Tastes even better the next day.

Rather than cutting the wraps, I used a round casserole dish and simply layered them, then cut cake-style portions.
HOW many does this serve?????

I haven't made this yet, but I find it difficult to believe that this is supposed to serve TEN people using ONE can of black beans and ONE can of diced tomatoes!!! No wonder several respondents mentioned finding it difficult to stick to the portion size...

I added half pound of salad shrimp for extra protein and used 6 large tortilla wraps. Makes about 6-8 portions that way.


As a San Diego native now living in Massachusetts, I make all our mexican food as I haven't found any good restaurants serving authentic mexican food. I added a diced jalapeno, one-half a red pepper and extra cumin. Added hot sauce at the table

Low calorie, great taste

I made this exactly as the recipes states and it was wonderful! It was so good that it was hard to stick to the portion size...I wanted more!

Easy to make
Chilaquiles Casserole

A delicious tasting casserole enjoyed by the family butan agree with anonymous" I Live in New York City" and being from Southern California bypassing the all time favorite pinto and refried beans is unheard of, all of a sudden it's black beans in many of these Mexican recipes ? We omitted the black beans,chicken or beef makes for an excellent addition for this delicious meal ...

Excellent recipe...
