Cheese Enchilada Casserole

20 Mar
Jason and I love tacos and enchiladas. While the real Mexican food from an authentic restaurant is obviously as good as it gets, we rarely eat out, so our home-made variety usually suffices. This recipe turned out delicious and was very easy to make. It could be prepared ahead of time, so when you get home you just need to pop it in the oven.
