Sausage and Queso Enchilada Casserole



This quick to make casserole starts with a recipe usually served as a dip {Hot Cheese and Sausage Enchilada Dip}

With a few simple steps, you have Mexican Style Comfort Food!  So have a party tonight, make extra dip and then make dinner tomorrow night!






INGREDIENTS
one batch of Hot Cheese and Sausage Enchilada Dip, prepared (recipe here)
8 flour tortillas, cut into quarters
2 cups shredded mozzarell or cheddar (or a combination of the 2)
OPTIONAL:
fresh tomatoes, diced
avocados, diced

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. Cover the bottom of the prepared dish with a layer of the quartered tortillas (use half of the tortillas you prepared)
  3. Top this layer of tortillas with half of the prepared Enchilada Dip.
  4. Use the remaining tortillas to cover the layer of dip and top this with the remaining Enchilada Dip.
  5. Top with shredded cheese, cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes until cheese toasts just a little and the casserole is warm and bubbly.  
  6. Remove from the oven and top with the optional tomatoes and avocados as desired.  Serve warm.  



If making the dip for this recipe at this time,
use the stove top cooking directions to make it faster.
(or make it ahead earlier in the day using the slow cooker options)
The dip recipe calls for the Chicken Enchilada Soup blend from my
eCookbook ~ Soups.  This is one of the reasons I like to keep
a jar of the bulk blend on hand at all times! 
All of the dip ingredients go into the skillet and cook until melted to
make the sauce (or dip!)
A pizza cutter makes quick work of quartering the flour tortillas!
Start with the four corners when layering the tortillas and then fill in the sides and center.
First layer of the dip / sauce...doesn't have to be 'exactly' half...just cover the
layer of tortillas and the rest will be added on the next layer. 
Second layer of tortillas...no need to cover sauce completely. 
Add shredded cheese of choice.  
When serving, some fresh tomatoes give it nice color.  I was out of
avocado this day, but is sure is good with some diced on top!
