How to Make Healthy Enchilada Casserole

Healthy Enchilada Casserole

My family really loves enchilada casserole and my mom has been making it for as long as I can remember. This Healthy Enchilada Casserole recipe not only tastes authentic, but can also be made two ways – Beef or Chicken. And I know what authentic Mexican food should taste like! My father emigrated from Mexico, so I am a first generation American. My family also usually visits Mexico at lease once a year and we are big foodies, so we tend to eat our way through tons of tacos, tamales, and enchiladas. Between that, and just living in the Southwest, I consider my opinions on Mexican food pretty refined.

Usually, I base the recipes I share off of ones that have already been made, but this one comes directly from my family and is near to my heart. Naturally, once we realized we had to eat healthier, the recipe had to be tweaked in order to fit our needs. After a little trial and error, we settled on the recipe you see before you. It is a huge hit in my home and think it will be in yours too – Buen Provecho!

Healthy Enchilada Casserole

This recipe has two ways you can make it – with Red Enchilada sauce for Beef and Green Enchilada sauce for Chicken. It is a healthy and very delicious meal!

  • Add cooked meat in a layer on on top of sauce and tortillas. Add more sauce.
  • Add tortillas the same way as step 4. Pour the rest of the sauce. Top with cheese.
  • Put in the oven for approximately 30-40 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

*Siete Grain-Free Tortillas are a good option!

Best Sauce Options

I have tried both of these sauces and can confirm that they taste good and work really well for this Healthy Enchilada Casserole recipe. Best if used with the red sauce for Beef and the green sauce for Chicken.

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
