Easy Beef Enchilada Casserole

Beef enchilada casserole is a hearty and flavorful Tex-Mex dish that is perfect for a family dinner or a potluck party.

My Texan grandmother has a similar recipe. But rather than layering the tortillas, she used to roll them up with the beef.

Oh the memories of such a wonderful dish – but the layering in this recipe definitely makes it easier for a weekday family dinner!
