Larry's Easy Cheesy Enchilada Casserole

Enchilada Casserole
Larry's Easy Cheesy Enchilada Casserole is a dish of baked enchiladas without the hassle of rolling the fillings in corn tortillas. Think of it as Mexican lasagna. This is really easy, my kids love it and I predict it will become the new favorite casserole for pot luck suppers. I've used Larry's Ranchero Sauce in this recipe, but feel free to use Larry's Chipotle Sauce instead.
1 16 oz. jar Larry's Ranchero or Chipotle Sauce
6 to 8 soft corn tortillas
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 lb. ground beef, chicken or turkey
2 cups grated cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 350'
2. Add the vegetable oil to a medium sized pot and brown the ground meat.
3. Add Larry's Ranchero or Chipotle Sauce to the pot and stir it into the browned meat.
4. In a two quart baking dish, place a spoonful of warm sauce mix on the bottom.
5. Place a corn tortilla on top of that. Sprinkle with cheese and more sauce and cover with another layer of tortilla.
6. Repeat with the layers of sauce mix, tortillas and cheese ending with sauce mix over all topped with cheese.
7. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the casserole is hot and bubbly.


Serves 4 to 6

Five Star Review from AMAZON.COM customer!






 An amazon.com customer just gave Larry's Southwestern Sauces me a great review!

Thanks!

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic South of the Border Taste, January 22, 2015
     
This review is from: Larry's Chipotle, Mole and Ranchero Sauce (3pack) 16 oz. Jars (Misc.)
These sauces are a versatile ingredient to keep handy in your kitchen - we used them in chicken, ground beef and egg dishes and got many compliments on both the color, consistency and flavor.
 
A little of these sauces goes a long way because the flavor is complex and intense. We also like the fact that there are no artificial ingredients or sweeteners.
 
We almost couldn't believe these sauces came out of a bottle because they taste like someone just created them on the stove cooktop.
 
Larry's sauces are a worthwhile addition to your kitchen pantry, especially if you love Mexican and American Southwestern style cuisine.

Larry's Ranchero Beef Tacos

Larry's Ranchero Beef Tacos
Larry's Ranchero Beef Tacos are the natural alternative to those powdery packets of taco seasoning for making tacos at home for the whole family. The Zagat Survey says beef tacos in soft corn tortillas are America's favorite tacos. Here's my version using Larry's all-natural, NON-GMO Ranchero Sauce.
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 16 oz jar Larry's Ranchero Sauce
16 soft corn tortillas (feel free to use 8 crunchy shells if that is what your family likes)
1 cup finely shredded lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar or Monterrey Jack cheese
1/2 cup finely minced fresh cilantro
8 lime wedges

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet, add the ground beef, and cook through. 
  • Drain off the excess fat if you prefer.
  • Pour one 16 oz. jar of Larry's Ranchero Sauce over the meat and cook for five to ten minutes on medium heat, stirring often.
  • Heat the soft corn tortillas in a dry non-stick skillet until warm and pliable. 
  • Use two soft corn tortillas for each taco and fill the tacos shells with the ranchero meat mixture, sprinkle on the cheese, lettuce, and cilantro and serve. 
  • Add a squeeze of lime juice to each taco. 
  • Serves 4.
