But first, make sure you try this scrumptious looking Enchilada Lasagna. This Enchilada Lasagna recipe mixes Italian lasagna with Mexican style enchiladas. They have different flavours and use different spices so how does this really end up working out anyhow? The lasagne takes on more of a enchilada flavour with all of the Mexican spices rather than the Italian spices like basil, thyme, oregano and garlic, and goes with the cumin, chilli powder and spicy flavours. The recipe is made with chicken, as well as cream of celery soup to give it a nice, creamy texture, cheeses, chillies, as well as corn tortillas. Instead of the typical spaghetti sauce, enchilada sauce is used for the layers. Basically, the layers of the enchilada lasagna layer the meat, the corn tortillas, the cheese and the sauce just like you would do with a normal lasagna and then it is baked in the oven to melt the cheese and meld the flavours. What you are left with is a pile of cheesy, saucy, meaty goodness that everyone in the household with gobble up with gusto.
This recipe could even become one of your weekly favourites to whip up in a jiffy. The casserole recipe can always be made ahead as well, and then frozen to be made when ever it is needed. That is the beauty of casserole type meal recipes like this, no fancy cooking, just throw everything in one dish and cook it up. So give this amazing recipe a try as soon as you can, I bet you won't regret it and your family will praise you for it.
