What is it with kids loving anything with cheese or ‘gravy’? This is a family favorite that the kids can help out with. You can make it as spicy as you want. It’s very quick and easy, and I promise it will be a hit.
1lb ground meat (hamburger, turkey or chicken)
1 packet of enchilada seasoning
1 can tomato soup
1/4 cup water
1 cup shredded cheese, or 4 slices of american cheese
4 10″ flour tortillas – use lid of dish to cut the tortillas to size of the casserole dish
small Casserole dish (I use an 8×10 deep dish)
Preheat oven to 350. In a skillet, brown meat until done.
In a bowl mix enchilada seasoning with can of tomato soup, add in 1/4 cup water. Using a spoon or ladel, put a little sauce on the bottom of the dish. Now the fun starts… this is the part the kids can help with! Lay a tortilla on the bottom of the dish. Then the meat. Top with a little cheese. Repeat again twice. Top with a tortilla and remaining sauce. Bake in over for about 20 minutes or until the top sauce starts to bubble.
I garnish with diced onions, jalapenos, sour cream and shredded lettuce. A great side is an instant bag of spanish rice.
