Enchilada Pie to Make Ahead

There are so many options with this dish. You can serve it with salsa, guac or just about anything!

Enchilada pie
Recipe by: Courtney

Corn Tortillas, cut in half
1 pound of ground turkey, chicken or beef (your choice but I had turkey)
1-2 cans green enchilada sauce
1 can green sliced chilies
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained (I used fresh because that is what I had)
4 cups of shredded cheese (you can use Monterey, sharp cheddar, or a blend)
1 cup Chicken stock
Sliced tomato

Sour Cream
Sliced lime

1. In a baking dish (I used a really small one because it was just for two of us but you could make this in any sized dish you want). Just use a rectangular dish.

2. In a small bowl mix enchilada sauce and chilies together

3. Ladle some enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan. Top with tortillas and assemble similar to assembling lasagna. Top with cheese, ladle enchilada mixture on top, sprinkle black beans on top. Then layer the tortillas on top again and repeat until you reach the top of the dish. Finish off with last of the cheese and pour on the chicken stock over everything. Top with sliced fresh tomatoes.
4. Cover and refrigerate if you are saving for later for up to 2 days. Otherwise, cook for about 45 minutes-1 hour at 350 degrees until cheese is bubbly and brown. Serve alongside sour cream, jalapenos, and slices of avocado. Don’t forget the lime!

Crud, I'm still new at all of this blogging stuff. I was trying to fix a typo and I deleted my comment. Sigh.
Anyway, these look to die for! I love enchiladas and I can't wait to try these. I've never made them at home before because they look like so much work but this looks doable, thanks! The ground turkey is also a bonus. I love ground turkey!

LOL. These WERE really good. I was skeptical because I was literally just throwing stuff in the pan without a recipe b/c all the ones I read had canned soup and I refuse to eat that dog crap. Its too slimey! Anyhew...super duper easy...and SOO good!!!
