Simple to make and rather tasty enchilada casserole from Cooks.com. A colleague brought this to a work lunch potluck and I thought my family would enjoy it. Well I was partly right, 2 out of 3 kids gave it an “excellent” and “this is my favorite”. The toddler didn’t care for it, but that can be said about most of the things I make, but I try anyway. I used less cheese and 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup to make it a little lighter on the calories.

1 lb. Ground beef
1 Clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 lb. Cheddar cheese, shredded (I only used 2 to 3 cups and it was plenty cheesy)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
12 to 15 soft corn tortillas, cut into strips
8 oz. Enchilada sauce
4 oz. Green chilies, diced
Cook meat, garlic and onion in skillet until browned. Mix soups and green chilies. Dip half tortilla strips in enchilada sauce on both sides and line bottom of 13×9 inch pan (coated with nonstick cooking spray). Cover with half meat, half cheese and soup mixture. Repeat layers with cheese on top. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes. Casserole can be made ahead and refrigerated. Enjoy!
I served it with plain white rice topped with Puerto Rican Red Beans.
This recipe is from Crock-pot.com and only tastes like I spent all day making it. I don’t normally remember recipes but I do remember this one since it’s so simple and I make it often for family and friends. If we have leftovers, they disappear quickly!

I have been favoring slow cooker recipes this past week when we had family visiting. Who wants to spend time in the kitchen in the summer with family in town? I would rather spend time with them! Slow cooked meat is better for my RA than grilled or fried meat and it comes out so…
Originally posted 2011… Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) flares are not as fun as a “flare” might sound. If you aren’t familiar with RA, its an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system attacks joints throughout the body.

As a working mom of 3 amazingly adorable and active boys, I hardly ever take the time to do something for myself….sound familiar? It’s so much easier…
I first made this simple Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing for Cinco de Mayo a couple years ago after trying something similar at a restaurant that Superhubby and I like for date nights. The Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing is refreshing with a hint of spiciness and sweetness. Often when I buy cilantro at the grocery store,…
