Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe Is a Satisfying Mexican Dinner

Here’s an enchilada casserole recipe that takes typical Mexican dish ingredients and bakes them layered in a round pan. You can determine which ingredients you like, and either cook it in a springform pan or in a cast iron skillet as I did here. The springform pan allows you to remove the outer ring and cut slices easily, but the skillet worked well enough.

You can make this easy recipe with ground beef, too, or make it vegetarian by using beans and corn. Serve this easy Mexican casserole recipe with your favorite side dishes.
