Green chili beef enchiladas casserole
4-6
20 minutes
35 minutes
55 minutes
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 jalapeno pepper, deseeded and small diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 soft flour tortillas
12 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1 10.75-ounce can cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
1 4-ounce can green chilies
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
5 scallions, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Brown the beef along with the sliced onions, diced jalapeno, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and set to one side.
Place the tortillas on a flat surface. Spoon the beef mixture and a handful of cheese onto half of each tortilla. Using your hands, fold up the ends of the tortillas before rolling them across like a cigar, keeping the filling in place.
Place the rolled tortillas seam side down into the bottom of a lightly greased 3-quart casserole dish. Fit them all in an even layer on the bottom.
Mix together the chicken soup, yogurt, chopped cilantro (reserving a handful for later use) and green chilies. Stir until the ingredients are combined. Pour the sauce over the enchiladas.
Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top.
Bake the casserole, uncovered, in the oven for 35 minutes. Serve with the freshly chopped scallions and the remaining cilantro leaves.
Pro tip: These tasty enchiladas work just as well with chicken or pork, so feel free to substitute in your favorite meat!

It was the dish my mom made on cold January nights when we came in from sledding. This version keeps the classic combination of saucy meat and creamy potatoes but adds a distinctive Southwestern flair
