Well, it's not really enchiladas or lasagna, but I wanted to make a dish that would be good for a potluck. Tasty and easy to serve up in 'sample' size portions for our neighborhood Cinco de Mayo potluck.
(note - my cooking is more method than recipe, portions are approximate)
Onion Bell peppers can black beans cheddar cheese
Chorizo Poblano peppers flour tortillas sliced black olives
Ground beef Spices queso lg can red enchilada sauce
I browned onions with a small package of chorizo, using the fat from the meat instead of butter or oil to sautee the onions, then added a pound of ground beef and got that cooking too.
Next I cut 2 bell peppers (I chose pretty yellow and red ones) and 2 poblano peppers into chunks and threw that it. I added a bit of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, chili powder and cumin too.
Preheat the oven to 350F
I sprayed a large glass casserole dish with oil and proceeded to layer goodies.
One layer meat mixture
next layer black beans, drained
next layer flour tortillas cut into bite-sized pieces
next layer queso
next layer more meat
next layer, more tortillas
next layer, the rest of the meat
top layer, shredded cheddar
Pour one large can of red enchilada sauce over the whole dish
garnish with sliced black olives.
Bake at 350F for one hour.
No photos. We packed it up, took it over, and it was eaten.
