Cheese Enchilada Caserole

October 12, 2013

This is another recipe I’ve had for a long time and have no idea where it came from. Likely the great vast internet somewhere… But it’s a good one! This makes an 9×13-inch pan full which is a lot for two people. So I make it as two 9×9-inch dishes and froze one.
