Enchilada Casserole

Good Morning Everyone! Pray all is going well ya'll....

I was wondering why I even chose the "recipe day" when most of whatever cooking I do is not even measured! it goes....hope I explain myself well


1lb of Ground Beef/Turkey

1 bag Shredded Cheese

Corn Tortillas (amount of tortillas depends on your cake/casserole dish or how deep you want to make it) Cut them if you'd like to fit your pan (halves or quarters)

1 to 2 Tbsp of Chili Powder (I prefer Gebhardt's) you can add salt, garlic or any other spice you'd like

In a pan you take the Chili Powder add some oil and stir like your making gravy, add water til it's almost like flavored water, set aside.

Brown/cook your choice of Meat

Now take the tortillas line the bottom of your pan
add a layer of meat (I usually just grab a hand full and sprinkle around)
add a layer of cheese (same as above)
Start the process over
Once your finished layering, "pour" Chili Gravy on casserole

Bake 20-30 minutes


P.S. For those of you who like onions and any other extra's you can layer with that as well
also some prefer to cook/fry their tortillas to make them softer.

Iwanted to share this with ya'll as well, hope ya'll don't's an email that I've always loved and I'm sure that maybe some of you have already read/reread it and maybe some not at all.......


Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this?" or "Why did God have to do this to me?" Here is a wonderful explanation! A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong, she's failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.

Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter says, "Absolutely Mom, I love your cake."

"Here, have some cooking oil," her Mother offers. "Yuck" says her daughter.

"How about a couple raw eggs?" "Gross, Mom!"

"Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?" "Mom, those are all yucky!"

To which the mother replies: "Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves. But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!

God works the same way. Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times.. But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good! We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!

God is crazy about us. He sends us flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.

Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose our heart.

Much LOVE!!!
