Layered Cheese Enchiladas

Layered Cheese Enchiladas

I gave today’s recipe the name layered cheese enchiladas because it is literally cheese, enchilada sauce, and corn tortillas layered and baked. That is it.

Three ingredients layered together. It takes about 5 minutes to prepare and about 25 minutes to bake. That is all. So easy and so good!

This really isn’t much of a recipe, which is why I have not shared it before. Lately though I have been in the mood for really simple cooking. I have been turning more and more to basic recipes that don’t take a lot of thought or work.

This recipe is just that. It is about as basic as you can get with only three ingredients. And all the ingredients are ones that I almost always have on hand.

My kids love this simple dinner. It is meatless though so don’t skimp on the cheese. The cheese is what makes this good!

The amounts for this are pretty basic. You can easily vary it depending on how large or small you want to make it.

  1. My mother used to make layered enchiladas when I was a kid. I haven’t thought about them in ages! She always browned ground beef with onions and spices and layered that in between as well. I think I need to make these soon. Thank you for sharing. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • You could easily add ground beef to this. I make a mexican layered casserole that has ground beef in it and it is great. This would be easy to change up and add whatever you want to it.

  2. i can’t wait to try this! it looks so good. simple is always good ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I tried these and was very impressed! It’s an easy and delicious way to make enchiladas. I was skeptical because it didn’t seem that all the tortillas could possibly get cooked (really dislike soggy tortillas in a dish), but each one was nicely cooked. This is so much easier that the regular way of quickly frying each one and rolling it up and it is much healthier too. Thanks!
