I missed something on this one! I followed the directions, but I didn’t post the sizes of the cans when I made my shopping list. I should have used a small can of enchilada sauce and not a large can, but I added my touch and got it a little thicker.
I found this recipe on Betty Crocker’s Website. I am sure Betty’s way would have been much better, but I like to be honest about my cooking, and sometimes it is a hit and sometimes, it’s a miss!!
This is what mine looked like going into the pot.
After four hours of cooking, I had an enchilada soup! I had planned on making Spanish Rice, so I decided to cook my rice on the stove top and add it to the casserole, to thicken it a bit. (I simply saute’ed 1 1/2 cups white rice in 2 TBSP of canola oil until golden brown. Today, I added a can of tomatoes with green chilies and 3 cups of chicken broth. I allowed it to cook until the rice was done.) I added the rice and tasted the casserole. It tasted pretty bland. I remembered I had a pack of enchilada mix, so I added that, along with a bit of salt. This is what I got:
I put the extra cheese on top, covered the pot, and allowed the cheese to melt.
Now, it is time to serve my “mistake,” and I decided that since it wasn’t a “fine dining experience” it could be served on my everyday styrofoam china!! 🙂
Well, for the family’s responses:
Me: I liked it. It was a good, hearty meal.
Mister: “I like it, the flavor is good!” (He had two servings.) “I can taste the corn from the tortillas. It’s good.”
Sweet Pea: gave a thumbs up
Sportsman: “It was ok. I would eat it again.”
Music Man: “This is good!” (He also had two servings.)
I will make this again, and I will follow the correct sizes, the next time, but if I happen to forget, I know it can be turned into a good meal. This mistake ended up making 7 quarts and everyone will eat the left overs with no problems.
