Beef Enchilada Casserole

I got this one at a recipe exchange at work.  But by all the specific kitchen gadgets, I am fairly certain this is a Pampered Chef recipe.  Yummy Recipe. Super easy. Super fast!!

Beef Enchilada Recipe

1 lb 95% lean ground beef
1 tbsp Southwestern Seasoning Mix
¼ tsp salt
1 can enchilada sauce
¼ cup water
½ cup medium thick and chucky salsa
12 yellow corn tortillas
¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro divided
1 cup shredded Colby & Monterey Jack cheese blended, divided
Sour Cream and lime wedges (optional)

  1. Combine beef, seasoning mix and salt in *10 inch skillet. Cook over medium – high heat 8-10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking beef into crumbles using Mix N Chop. Add enchilada sauce, water and salsa to skillet. Bring to a simmer and remove from heat.
  2. As beef mixture cooks, place tortillas in a stack and cut into 1 inch pieces using Pizza Cutter. Snip cilantro using Kitchen Shears
  3. Arrange half of the tortillas evenly over bottom of Deep Dish Baker; top with half of the beef mixture and half of the cheese. Sprinkle 2 tbsp of the cilantro over cheese. Top with remaining tortillas, beef mixture and cheese.
  4. Microwave baker on HIGH 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with remaining 2 tbsp cilantro. Serve with sour cream and lime wedges, if desired.

Yield 6 servings

Notes:
Easily cut a stack of tortillas using Pizza Cutter
If desired, 1 tbsp taco seasoning mix can be substituted for the Southwestern Seasoning Mix
For a variation in flavor, substitute ground turkey and green enchilada sauce for the beef and red enchilada sauce, if desired
For a spicier kick, hot salsa can be substituted for medium salsa, if desired
If yellow corn tortillas are not available white corn tortillas can be substituted
