Entree: Mexican Casserole

13 Feb

This is a healthy casserole that will satisfy any Mexican fast food craving (it smells like Taco Bell). I would probably add less refried beans next time or treat this more like something to pair with fresh corn tortillas served as fajitas or something…but I know for sure that it tastes wonderful!

Ingredients:
1 Onion, sliced
Bell peppers (two different colors), sliced
1 can of refried beans
4 chicken tenderloins, diced
Garlic
1 small can chili verde
1 can enchilada sauce
4 corn tortillas, torn to smaller pieces
Salt, pepper, chili powder

Recipe:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook chicken, garlic, and spices over medium high until chicken is cooked through.
3. In a separate pan, sauté onions and bell peppers in olive oil until onions are slightly transparent and peppers are still slightly crisp.
4. In a casserole dish, layer tortilla pieces, beans, chicken, and vegetables.
5. Pour enchilada sauce (as much as you wish) over the entire casserole, cover, and bake until you can see the sauce boiling.
6. Top with avocado and your favorite salsa and enjoy!
