Enchilada Pie

Like most recipes I have, this one came from my mom. :) I had a huge package of tortillas I bought for a taco potluck that I needed to use up and was going to make the roll up kind of enchiladas, but as I was searching through my recipes for menu planning, I found this one from years ago. I'll take some pictures to add when its all done. Check out the recipe swap at Grocery Cart Challenge for more!

Enchilada Pie
(serves 8)

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 large onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 4oz can chopped green chilies
1 can mild enchilada sauce
1/4 c milk
1 pkg soft tortillas 10 in
1/2 lb grated cheddar cheese
1/2 lb grated monterey jack cheese
1 pint sour cream

Brown meat and chopped onion in a skillet, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Add soups, green chilies, enchilada sauce and milk. Line an oblong pan (13x9) with 3 or 4 tortillas. Top with a third of the meat mixture and a 1/3 of cheese. Repeat 2 more times. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Cool slightly and cut into squares to serve. Top each square with a dab of sour cream.

So it actually cost me about $10 to make this. Of couse it would have been less had I not used almost 2 lbs of cheese instead of the 1 lb it called for. But who doesn't like cheese? I only used 1 lb of ground beef, which I got on sale for 99 cents a lb. And I got my canned goods at a liquidator store, so they were much cheaper than is normal. We'll get at least 2 meals out of this, maybe a lunch or 2 as well.


  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe on the Grocery Cart Challenge. This sounds good and I have all the ingredients in my cupboard. I went overboard and bought too many cans of enchilada sauce and green chilis at our local scratch and dent store a few months ago. This recipe will be on my menu plan soon.

  2. mmm I'll have to print this and try it soon! I love Mexican and it looks a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
