It has been so busy these days at our house. I thought that after the holidays things might slow down, but I am realizing that life in general is busy. It is never going to slow down. So I love a quick and easy casserole. This casserole came together in less than 10 minutes and was absolutely incredible!

Just when you think it can’t get any better, you load up the top with all of your favorite toppings. Avocados, sour cream, tomatoes, the possibilities are endless!

Quick, easy, and a meal that the family will love. This is my kind of casserole!

  1. The recipe calls for 2- 10 oz cans of enchilada sauce and yet in the instructions we are using only 1/2 cup in the bottom and 1/2 cup on the top. Assuming we should add another 1/2 cup in the middle layer when do we use the other 8 oz?

  2. This was a good outline for a dinner, but it desperately needed jazzing up. Added red and green peppers, jalapenos, pimentos, and chopped red onions. Also replaced the black beans with kidney beans because black beans taste like dirt. Cooked it all for 45 minutes and topped the finished product with chopped avocado, sour cream and chopped cilantro. Now that was a meal.

  3. I loved the casserole. I did need to cook it for 45 min. instead of 20. I added chopped green pepper and red onion to it. Topped with sour cream and avocado. So tasty and very easy.
