Enchilada Pie

I've made this recipe quite a few times, the recipe itself is actually from my very first cookbook, which my husband (then boyfriend) bought me on Valentines Day one year a VERY long time ago!

Its one of our favorites and makes ALOT so it can go far.. I recommend serving this up with a green salad!


1 sack Tortilla chips

1 lb. lean ground beef

2 cups shredded Mexican cheese

1 can red Enchilada Sauce
1 can green Enchilada Sauce

1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 brick Queso cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350°.

Crush tortilla chips and place 1/2 in the bottom of a 13x9 inch casserole dish.

Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain. Add both enchilada sauces and cream of mushroom soup.

Layer 1/2 of the beef mixture over chips. Sprinkle with 1/2 the Mexican cheese and 1/2 the Queso cheese.

Place the rest of the chips over the cheese, then again layer with the remaining meat mixture and the remaining cheese.

Bake in your preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Hi Carm, I found the queso cheese in the Deli part of my grocery. It comes in a White Block.. This was just something new that I'd thrown in to the recipe! LOL :o) Usually you can just use the Colby Jack Shredded Cheese!
