Okay, so everyone probably has some generic, Tex-Mex casserole dish of some sort. They’re not fancy (ergo, ‘casserole’), but they are tasty. And they hold up well as leftovers.

That’s all this is. A record of my gringo-fied, Mexican-esq baked meal. Enjoy, mi amigos.

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 lb. ground beef, turkey, or vegan substitute
  • 1 pkg taco seasonings
  • 2/3 c. water
  • 1 (14 oz) can enchilada sauce, divided x3
  • 1 (15 oz) can refried beans
  • 2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 7 flour tortillas
  • cooking spray (like Pam®)
  • optional accessories: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sour cream, corn chips, and salsa
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Sauté onion in a skillet over medium heat. Add ground meat; brown, then drain the grease. Stir in package of seasoning and 2/3 c. water; cook for 5-7 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Spray a 8×11″ baking dish with cooking spray. Pour 1/3 enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan. Cover with 2 tortillas. Spoon half of the beef mixture over the tortillas, and spoon another third of the sauce over the beef. Place 2 tortillas over this and cover with the refried beans and half the cheese. Cover with remaining 3 tortillas, beef, enchilada sauce, and cheese.
  4. Bake uncovered for 35 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
