A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Daily Ramblings, recipes, photos and whatever else I like to share along the way.

Cheese Enchilada Casserole Recipe


Back to trying recipes again to make sure we like then as I continue on my other journey of getting all those recipes that we like into a binder.
So, yeah, I made this for Sunday nights dinner and well let me just say one out of 4 really enjoyed it. 
Can you guess who that was?
Right. 
Me.
Spencer liked the corn tortillas since they became crispy and had the cheese on the.
DH liked only the tomatoes and onions.
Nate liked the tortillas, cheese and flavoring that it had. 
(I was not sure he would even touch it since he does not like tomatoes or onions.)
Me I thought the whole thing was good. I will say some of the onions were not cooked all the way through but honestly it was quite tasty. 
This is one recipe that I would use to make for my lunches since it is quick, tasty and fairly healthy. 
I was not sure about sharing but felt I would since someone else out there might enjoy it as much as me.
