Came across this gem while searching for dishes that could be prepped ahead of time, bagged in their individual components, assembled on sight and cooked in a dutch oven. If you want to see what the phrase "happy campers" is supposed to look, and sound, like, try this one out.
This was soooooooo Goooood! The only thing I did was use 2% evap. milk, 1/3 less fat cream cheese, mexican style cheese, and added a can of spanish style tomatoes with lime and cilantro (drained). It was awesome! Hubby loved it too.
Very taste and creamy. Will be making again!
Thanks for the tasty recipe! I changed a few things to fit our calorie/fat restricted dietary needs. I completely omitted the monterey jack cheese and used reduced fat cheddar on the top layer. Likewise, I used extra light cream cheese mixed with quark to further cut some calories. Since we can't get enchilada sauce in the UK, I substituted with one can of tomato paste (puree) mixed with water and taco seasoning. Lastly, I added some Dave's Insanity sauce for some kick (we like things HOT). I used my own homemade corn tortillas and it turned out great! I loved the creaminess from the milk and cream cheese. Even with all of my calorie saving substitutions, this was a delicious casserole! I can only image how wonderful it would be made as written! Thanks for the inspiration!
Love this! It was easy to put together. I used fire roasted green chilies and regular cheese but otherwise made as posted. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
This casserole tastes like more! Adaptation 1: boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts. Adaptation 2:Instead of enchilada sauce I mixed a can of tomato paste with two salsas(one smoky, one fresh. Worked like a charm. Adaptation 3: Crushed garlic with sauteed onions and chili for depth of flavour. Menu suggestion: Served it with grated sauteed zuchinni to rave reviews. It's a keeper!
Oh wow!!! Where is that 10 star button?? If there was one, that is what I would give this recipe. This is amazing, it totally rocked! I made mine with whole wheat tortillas, and scaled it down to 1/2 to feed my husband and I, anticipating left-overs of course. After my husband got a THIRD plate, I realized that there would be nothing left of this dish. ;) I made this in a round baking dish that fit my round tortillas perfectly. Cheese, spice and crunch, what more can you ask for? Super tasty dish that I will make many more times. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 07 :)
