This easy Cheesy Enchilada Casserole your whole family will love! My husband requests it all the time! Make it with leftover shredded chicken or beef.
I found this enchilada casserole recipe on a fabulous recipe blog called “Table For Two”. Everything on her blog that I have tried has been fantastic. I made this pasta casserole for my husband a few months ago and now he requests it ALL. THE. TIME. We have tried it with leftover shredded chicken and beef and it was just as amazing. Try it! You will love it! It is such an easy dish and definitely a family-pleaser!
