This casserole is my new favorite Mexican dish! It’s so good! A few weeks ago we stopped by my in-laws and they were just putting dinner away. They had this casserole for dinner and I snuck a bite and OH MY GOODNESS! It was amazing. So many awesome Mexican flavors going on! I had to get the recipe! So my mother-in-law gave me the recipe by memory and I hurried to write it down.
To make the casserole you make the ground beef and refried bean filling then soften up your corn tortillas. Then you fill each one up with a little of the meat/bean mixture and roll it up like a taquito then you place them all in a casserole dish. Next you top it with green chile enchilada sauce. Bake it, add a little cheese, bake it a tiny bit more and then enjoy! So simple for how amazing it is. I just loved the flavor of the green chile enchilada sauce but you can also make this with red enchilada sauce.
I love Mexican food and I’m excited to have another great recipe! We are going to be having this often around here.
