Enchilada Casserole

 I make a family recipe for Enchiladas that my family loves. But this time I wanted to try something different.  I was a little bored  making the same dish every time.  So I decided to add a few more ingredient and turn it into a casserole.  It turned out great. I liked it a little better then the original. My family will probably string me up for that statement. But sometimes you just need to do things different.
You will need
1 pound of beef. We used our moose meat.
one package of taco seasoning
2 cans (15oz ) refried beans
2 cans ( 15 oz) enchilada sauce
1 can green giants southwestern corn 
one small chopped onion
flour tortillas
4 cups of cheese. You can use more if your like us and love cheese.
Cook your onions and beef together till half way done. Then add your taco seasoning. fill the empty bag with water and add to the pan. This helps the meat take in the flavoring. When your meat is done and you have about 1/2 cup of juice.  You can add a little water to make  it a1/2 a  cup. If your short of juice  . Just make sure to stir it in before you add  the beans. Add beans and stir till combined.

 Now we start laying.Get out a baking dish. Spray with a nonstick spray.  Add a little bit of the sauce. Just enough to lightly cover the bottom. Lay out a layer of tortillas . Using a spoon lightly spread sauce on top of them  Then add your burger mixture. Next comes your corn ,then your cheese.  Repeat the layering till you get the amount of layers you want,or run out of food. For the top layer you will want tortillas, sauce , and cheese . In that order. If you end up with to much enchilada sauce in your pan. Just use a spoon to dip it out. The sauce should be 1/4 of the way up the pan. Any more is a little to much.  Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes depending on your oven.
 If you like it hot. Just add some hot chilies to the meat mixture after its cooked.  I wouldn't add layers of the peppers  to it. Unless you really love to burn. You can also use the hot enchilada sauce. Unfortunately my daughter doesn't care for hot. So we just add hot sauce to ours.   My family gave it a 9 out of 10. I gave it a 10.

  5. Where did you find moose meat? I have never seen it in grocery stores. I am sure it is better for you than the beef meat. We have enjoyed bear meat in our area. The meat is very delicious and low in fat. Wondering if the moose is like that.

    Thanks for the recipe!


  6. My husband goes hunting every year. We either get a Elk or a Moose. I am hoping for a Elk this year. Yes Moose meat is low in fat.

  7. FYI- Michelle made a piece for me too. It was AMAZING. My Mom had no idea after Michelle plated her up a piece that it was moose, she loved it.
