enchilada casserole

I love the recipe included with this for homemade enchilada sauce. I don't know how many times I have wanted to make enchiladas and had everything on hand except the sauce. This is such an easy way to make the sauce. It tastes better than the canned stuff too. You should give this recipe a try, it's delicious!

first make a batch of enchilada sauce...

1 can 8 oz. tomato sauce
3 cans water
2 T. taco seasonings
2 T. corn starch
Stir and bring to a boil, cook about 5 minutes to thicken...

1 lb. hamburger
1/2 chopped onion (or dried onion flakes)
1 clove garlic, pressed
4 c. pinto beans (or black beans)
1 can sliced olives
1 can diced green chilis
1 package taco seasoning
1/3 c. water
flour tortillas (or corn)
shredded cheddar cheese

Cook hamburger meat add everything but tortillas and cheese...
spray inside of crockpot with non stick spray. Lay three tortillas in bottom, pour ench. sauce, then meat mixture, then cheese, then add another layer of tortillas, sauce, meat & cheese add remaining sauce over the top. Serve with tortilla chips and sour cream.
