Green Chili Enchilada Bake – a delicious take on a traditional enchilada casserole!

Enchiladas were on the menu for Sunday night.  

I ended up just making an Enchilada Casserole because it is easier than rolling up the individual enchiladas.  I forgot that I had bought a can of Green Chili Enchilada sauce, so I went ahead and used it in the casserole, though I have never tried it and have only used green chilies in a couple of recipes.

Oh my gosh!!! It was so good! 

 The kids loved it too.

If you haven’t tried Green Chile Enchilada Sauce yet, I recommend giving it a shot, especially since making this casserole is so easy.  I always make it with leftovers from my Taco skillet recipe.

  1. My son has a dairy allergy, do you think it would taste good with just the chile sauce, meat and rice mix over tortillas?

    1. Oh my gosh, I can't believe I forgot to update the post with the directions for the Green Chile and Cream Cheese version! (sometimes I wonder where my mind has gone…) Thank you Nancy for the comment, I have updated the post now!
