Cheesy Layered Beef Enchilada Bake

It’s always a blast partnering with Old El Paso to bring you new simple dinner ideas.  Hands down some of my very favorite type of recipes to develop.  I know how busy the weeknights get with the kids, so I love having simple dinners on regular rotation.

Instead of rolling individual enchiladas, I cut up tortillas and did a “layered enchilada” dish that’s done in about 30 minutes from start to finish.  All simple pantry ingredients too.  This is a great dinner recipe to get the kids to help with.  They’ll love feeling apart of dinnertime.

Hope you enjoy!

Cheesy Layered Beef Enchilada Bake

You’ll use Old El Paso Flour Tortillas, Red Enchilada Sauce and Green Chilies.  Love having these products stocked in my pantry for quick fix dinners.

You’ll start by cutting your tortillas into little triangles.  Really any shape will do, you can even tear them into pieces.  Whatever you are in the mood for.

Dinner

This Roasted Tomato Cilantro Lime Creamy Spaghetti is the perfect accompaniment for dinner! Be sure to add it to your dinner menu.

Roasted Tomato Cilantro Lime Creamy Spaghetti

Thrilled to partner with The Good Table to bring you the perfect side dish recipe for your perfectly seasoned chicken dinner.  The Good Table is a new product line from General Mills and offers families gourmet-style sauce and crust mixes for chicken and fish.  Love simple ways to spice up dinner staples, I’m always on the hunt for that!

So excited for you to try both of these recipes.  Packed with your favorite Southwest flavors, dinner has never tasted so good.

Not only do you get amazing flavors, but both are so simple to prepare.  Your family and friends are in for a big treat.  I love making dinnertime adventurous for my crazy boys.  I try to let them try something new a few times a month to broaden their palates.  A new vegetable with their favorite dipping sauce is always fun.  Challenging them to eat the colors of the rainbows is a favorite too.  Have fun at dinnertime and make it adventurous!
Roasted Tomato Cilantro Lime Creamy Spaghetti

Here’s The Good Table box you’ll look for at the grocery store (it’s in the bread crumb aisle!).  There are a number of flavor varieties.  They’ve got a Parmesan & Herb Chicken, Crunchy Thai Peanut Chicken, Southwest Tortilla Chicken and Lemon & Herb Fish.  I chose the Southwest Tortilla today to go with my spaghetti.  So good!

Here’s a link for a coupon.  Check it out HERE.
