  • 1 lb. 93% extra-lean ground beef NOTE: if you don’t like beef, you can easily substitute with an equal amount of ground turkey or ground chicken
  • 1 ½ cups enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded Mexican-blend cheese
  • 8 6-inch corn tortillas
  • Optional garnish: sour cream sliced green onion, sliced olives, diced avocado or guacamole
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large skillet, cook beef until no longer pink. Drain, return to the skillet, and stir in half of the enchilada sauce (about ¾ cup) and half of the cheese (about ½ cup).
  3. Place 4 of the tortillas in the bottom of the prepared dish, tearing them as necessary to cover the bottom (overlapping is fine).
  4. Top with half of the meat mixture and drizzle with ¼ cup of enchilada sauce. Repeat layers one more time.
  5. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with remaining ½ cup of cheese, and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes (until cheese melted and casserole is hot and bubbly).
