Healthy Dinner // Enchilada Casserole Fitness

I am definitely the type to plan my meals in advance. We grocery shop once a week and base our grocery items on what we need for dinners every week.  I try not to rotate recipes too often because it’s easy to get sick of something if you eat it too often, but one of the recipes we eat on a regular basis is my Enchilada Casserole.

Ya’ll… this casserole is so good. It mixes all of your favorite Tex-Mex flavors, puts them in layers, covers them in cheese, and makes you really, really happy. I have had so many people tell me it’s on their weekly rotation and now I’m going to share it with you!

I originally posted this on A Guiltless Glutton but it deserves a place at Keeping Carrie Fit, too!
