Layered Enchilada Casserole (Freezer Meal)

Layered Enchilada Casserole

I really love enchiladas. We eat a variation of them every week. My favorite thing about this dish is that I can mix it all in one bowl and layer it and bake. No rolling, no sauce, no specific order. It tastes phenomenal and it makes a really awesome freezer meal. Make one for dinner and make one to freeze. Just double layer it with foil before baking it and freeze. Then just thaw it and bake.

Scale

Ingredients

2 cup cooked, shredded chicken (I just toss a few chicken breasts in the slow cooker in the morning to cook)
1 can diced tomatoes, drained (15 oz)
1 can black beans, drained (15oz)
8 oz cream cheese, soft
2 cup shredded cheese. ( I used a combo of 3 cheddar and Pepper Jack)
3 flour tortillas (I used 6 inch)

Instructions

1. Mix the chicken, tomatoes, beans, and cooking crème in a bowl. Combine well.
2. Place a 1/3 cup mixture on bottom of a pie plate or 8X8  freezer pan.  I buy the foil ones. Top with 1 flour tortilla.
3. Top tortilla with chicken mixture and cheese. Repeat layers and end with chicken mixture on top and top with last bit of cheese.
4. Double wrap in heavy aluminum foil to prevent freezer burn.  Label.

Cooking Instructions: Thaw and bake uncovered at 350 degrees 30 minutes or until heated through.
