Beef Enchilada Casserole


This is a quick and yummy recipe that you can throw together and have on the table in no time. It's delicious and not too spicy, though you can certainly kick that up if you want to. Believe it or not, I usually don't!

I do a half recipe of this for The Cajun and me and it makes what I would say is 4 very generous servings. Use the recipe as is to serve 8.

Now I do confess to going a little over on the cheese - but not by much honestly, just simply because I shredded the whole remainder of the cheddar block I had and it was just over a cup, so I used it up rather than have a tiny bit left over.

Speaking of shredded cheese - I have nothing against buying pre-shredded cheese bags. I know it's a time saver and I buy and use it myself sometimes.

But... something that I learned is that shredded cheeses have stabilizers and fillers in them to keep the cheese from clumping back together after the shredding process and that can, and usually does, interfere with the whole melty cheese process. 

On the other hand, a block of cheese is, well, just a block of cheese! No fillers. No stabilizers. And while I haven't worked out the cost, surely it must be cheaper to shred up a whole block of cheese, which you can then freeze if needed, than to buy it bagged as pre-shredded?

Well, unless of course, you catch a good sale with an equally good coupon!

Anyway, that's one of the main reasons that I got a food processor - to make an easy job of it. Yes, it can be a pain to clean, but if you wash it right away the cracks and crevices come clean pretty easy, so it's worth it. I usually wash mine while something is cooking.

A nice mixed garden salad with some steamed green beans goes really well with this dish. Enjoy!
