Green Enchilada Casserole

As many of you know I like to cook with either food that is left over or make one dinner item turn into another item. So on Wednesday I posted this fabulous Roasted Chicken Stuffed with Citrus. After we had completed dinner I was already trying to figure out what I could do with the 1st overs. So then I was remembering it had been quite sometime since we have had enchilada casserole, so that’s what I made. Forget the rolling of the tortillas or the partial frying of the tortillas to soften with this recipe. Remember Mrs Mix It is about recipes that are back to basics and not supper fancy. Come join me for a quick and easy recipe.
