Delicious Veggie Enchilada Casserole

Over Christmas my MIL made this delicious veggie enchilada casserole from this Taste of Home recipe. I loved the dish and asked for the recipe, knowing it would make for a perfect addition to my blog recipes.

Tonight, I doubled, modified, and tweaked things a bit. Made for a deeeeelish meal. By far one of my favorite mexican dishes, yet! If you’d like to add meat, I recommend shredded pork or diced steak.

Note: Throw some brussels sprouts in the oven (works great at the same temp) with the casserole (click here for recipe) to make an easy and delicious side to enjoy with the enchiladas!
