Food Porn ~ Enchilada Casserole

Since I never write here anymore, and I really do want to, a friend of mine suggested I post a recipe or a photo-blog, just to get myself here to the blog.  So, I bestow upon you something that a lot of people ask me about, something that is a favorite of my family...

Enchilada Casserole

First, I will start you off with ingredients!

You will need: 
  • 2 large cans of red enchilada sauce (we use mild because even it tends to be spicy, and I have Miss Picky to contend with) ☺
  • 1½ pounds of ground beef
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 28 corn tortillas
  • 4 or 5 good sized potatoes
  • a decent amount of your favorite cheese (sorry for the inaccurate measurements, I just use handfuls lol)
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Peel and cube potatoes and put on to boil (they need to cook 15-20 minutes or until softening, once they boil.)
  • Brown ground beef, add taco seasoning according to directions on package
  • Heat enchilada sauce
Once potatoes, meat and enchilada sauce are done...
  • Spread some sauce into two cake pans/rectangular casserole dishes
  • Dip tortillas into enchilada sauce, covering both sides of tortilla, and lay in pan.
  • Spread meat, potatoes (a little extra sauce!) and cheese on top of tortillas 
  • Repeat the tortilla process on top of the meat, potatoes and cheese 
The pan on the left is just sauce and tortillas, I started to put meat and then figured I'd do the left pan a step behind the right pan, for clarification purposes lol.  Meat, potatoes and sauce on the right!

Once again, the pan on the left is a step behind.  Meat, potatoes, sauce and cheese on the left.  The right already has the top layer of tortillas!

  • Once you have the (sauced dipped) tortillas on top, cover with cheese and then cover with tinfoil! 

The pan on the left is everything but cheese!  The pan on the right just needs to be covered with tinfoil and tossed in the oven!! 

  • Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes!! 


  • While they are baking, you can make a side dish.  We usually like beans and tortilla chips or beans and rice.  


The finished product!! 

Miss Picky's Plate!! ☺

I hope you have enjoyed one of my family's favorite (easy, yet a little messy!) meals!!  

I have recently learned to love cooking, so maybe I will bring you more food porn soon!! 

Love and Moonbeams,

The Only Words I Could Find...

Now I lay me
down to sleep

Instead I just
lay and weep

Too many thoughts
too much to feel

Sometimes life
seems so unreal

Just like a dream
good or bad

But real enough
to make me sad

Cannot explain
cannot describe

Cannot make you
feel my vibe

used to it

Doesn't mean
I like this shit

Trapped in my head
screaming loud

Sorry I couldn't
make you proud

I am me
and you are you

I cannot figure out
what to do

So lost and lonely
hurt and scared

Especially when
my soul is bared...

What the hell man
what's going on?

My comprehension
is all gone

How to pick
which path to travel

The wind smoothed sand
or the rock hard gravel

No idea which one
is best

I cannot believe
I'm taking this test

I didn't want it

I already took one
to be together

Hard, it was
but still I did it

Now I feel
like I can't
win it

No matter what
no matter the choice

Oh shit, I just
screamed out my voice...

It's gone, I have nothing
left to say

I guess I'll find
some other way...

To explain, express
and yes, to scream...

Please tell me this
is just a dream...
