Enchilada Lasagna Beef and Veggies

So Good!

So Good!

An enchilada that is not an enchilada but a cross between an enchilada and lasagna, yes its possible and better yet very tasty.

I wanted to get out of my recent repeat meal cycle and as a result I came up with this meal. Yes the meat and veggie part of the meal is similar to a recipe I came up with before but does not taste the same when combined like this.

Oh and this tastes great leftover the next day!

Ingredients 

  • 1 can of Las Palmas Enchilada Sauce
  • 8 Corn Tortillas (or however many fit your baking dish)
  • 1 cup – Cooked White Rice
  • 1 pound of Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper – chopped
  • 1 Yellow onion – chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves – diced
  • dash of Salt
  • 1 can of Black beans – drained
  • 2 bricks of Cheddar Cheese – shredded
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Cook it, build it, Cook it , Eat it 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Add vegetable oil and let heat then add green pepper then onion to medium high heated skillet and cook for about 3 minutes or until they just start to turn brown
  3. Add ground beef to skillet brown and crumble
  4. Add Black beans, garlic and dash of salt and mix well
  5. Heat Las Palmas Enchilada Sauce in microwave for about a minute. Put this in a container with a large opening as you will be dipping the corn tortillas into the container
  6. Spray baking dish with cooking spray
  7. Now do the building and cook it:
  8. Dip 2 tortillas into the Enchilada Sauce and place the tortillas on the bottom of the baking dish
  9. Add a portion of the meat veggie mixture in an even layer then top with cheese then two more dipped tortillas
  10. Add a layer of white rice then cheese and yes two more dipped tortillas
  11. Once again add a portion of the meat veggie mixture in an even layer then top with cheese then two more dipped tortillas
  12.  Pour sauce into baking dish carefully covering your stack of goodness
  13. Top with cheese
  14. Cover the baking dish in aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes
  15. Remove foil and broil until cheese is bubbly and a golden brown
  16. Let cool in baking dish for a few minutes before cutting and serving
This is the sauce I used. It does say mild on the can but I would say this is medium.
