Beef and Bean Enchilada Casserole

Craft a culinary masterpiece with this delicious and hearty Beef and Bean Enchilada Casserole. Packed with savory goodness and layers of flavor, this recipe transforms simple ingredients into a comforting and satisfying dish.

To embark on this culinary journey, gather the following ingredients: ground beef, black beans, corn tortillas, enchilada sauce, shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend), diced onions, and a selection of Mexican spices for added depth. Start by browning the ground beef in a skillet, infusing it with savory flavors and ensuring it becomes a hearty foundation for the casserole. Drain any excess fat, and season the beef with a mix of Mexican spices, creating a bold and aromatic filling.

In a separate bowl, combine black beans with diced onions, adding a layer of texture and savory goodness to the casserole. This bean and onion mixture becomes a flavorful addition that complements the seasoned beef. Assemble the casserole by layering corn tortillas in a baking dish, creating a base for the flavorful filling. Spoon a portion of the seasoned beef and bean mixture over the tortillas, ensuring an even distribution of flavors.

Pour enchilada sauce generously over the layers, allowing it to seep into the tortillas and infuse the casserole with a rich and tangy essence. Top the dish with a generous layer of shredded cheese, creating a gooey and irresistible crust. Repeat the layering process until the baking dish is filled, finishing with a final layer of enchilada sauce and cheese on top. This ensures a visually appealing and flavorful finish.

Bake the Beef and Bean Enchilada Casserole in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the enchilada sauce is heated through. The aroma wafting through your kitchen will be a tantalizing preview of the comforting delight that awaits.
