Enchilada Casserole: Gluten Free Recipe!
This one dish meals are great because you put all of the ingredients together and you get a quick Mexican inspired meal. After living in the southeast and moving to the East coast, real Mexican food is a distant but missed delight! As a result, this casserole satisfies my cravings and (bonus!) it’s a gluten free recipe!
I lived in southern California for 20 years and I just loved eating enchiladas and burritos while I lived there! Don’t get these flavorful foods confused in any way with those fast food tacos places.
This is a real wholesome and filling dish amd they say these kinds of meals are the best in the winter. Since it’s a casserole, you don’t have to go through the procedure of rolling the meat in the corn tortillas. Hence, you get the flavors with less work! That convenience is what makes a casserole a snap for a family meal. Just make some corn muffins and a great tasty salad and dinner will be great!
