This ground beef enchilada casserole makes a great meal for the whole family. Because it cooks in one dish, clean-up is quick and easy too!
This ground beef enchilada casserole is one of those recipes that will become a family favorite that you just keep coming back to.
Not only will the delicious combination of Tex-Mex flavors appeal to everyone, but this recipe is so easy it is virtually foolproof!
It is also very versatile and you can add some extra ingredients that your family might enjoy! Although this recipe doesn't call for beans, they make a great addition. Black beans are a good choice, or pinto beans.
You can also switch up the tortillas if you prefer. This recipe uses flour tortillas, although corn tortillas add a more authentic Mexican flavor.
What to serve with your ground beef enchilada casserole
This is pretty much a complete meal just as it is, although it is extra special with some salsa on the side. Why not make your own with this salsa fresca recipe - it is full of bright, fresh flavors.
Alternatively, serve it with a freshly tossed salad - or, if you have a particularly hungry family - a steaming bowl of Mexican rice!
How to store and heat any leftovers
In the unlikely event that any delicious casserole is left after your meal, you can put it into the refrigerator in a sealed container and store it for 3 to 4 days.
If you don't think you will have the chance to eat it in that time, place it in the freezer instead. You might prefer to freeze it in individual portions for family members to use as and when needed.
To thaw it out, simply place it in the freezer overnight. Reheat in the oven until completely heated through. Keep it covered with foil throughout or it may dry out. If you froze it into separate portions, they can be heated in the microwave - but do remember this may affect their texture.
