I’m always on the lookout for recipes to take to our church potluck dinner. This Potluck Enchilada Casserole is a great choice when you have a Mexican theme.Serving Enchilada Casserole on Pfaltzgraff's Villa Della Luna Dishes(Post modified with new photos on 2/24/23.)

Each month our church hosts a potluck dinner, usually with a theme. Mexican, Italian, German, Barbecue, etc. Mexican is always a favorite. Early in the week I will have big ideas about what I’ll bring. But usually by the time Saturday gets here, my energy and enthusiasm has leveled out to where I’m just trying to think of what would be quick and easy.

Prepare to Assemble the Casserole Using a Large Oblong Baking or Lasagna DishThis recipe is very easy to put together and doesn’t require anything special from your kitchen pantry. Ground burger, black beans, creamed soup, cheddar cheese and corn tortillas pretty much covers it. And the best part is it’s tasty and satisfying. You can always create something spectacular for next month’s dinner, right? You’ll want to use an oblong baking dish for this casserole. A 10×15 dish works well, or a lasagna-style pan.

A Note About Ingredients

I never buy enchilada sauce, but feel free to do so. If you want homemade, try my Recipe Here.

You could also substitute another creamed soup such as cream of chicken or cream of celery instead of the cream of mushroom, without changing the outcome too much.

If you want to use Monterey Jack cheese instead of cheddar, go for it. Or how about Pepper Jack? That would be good, too.

    I must be blind, but i can’t find what degree the oven should be on? I used 380 degrees. Turned out really good, I did double the canned black beans, as I am a black bean fan!

    1. I’m so sorry, Bonnie. I have apparently overlooked the temperature on this recipe. I’m glad that you enjoyed the recipe. The temperature should be 375, so you did good to go with 380. I will get this corrected on the recipe. Thanks for letting me know.

  2. I have what is probably a stupid question regarding the ingredients used to make this casserole.
    Do you use corn tortillas or corn tortilla chips?

    1. Hi Kathy, Not a bad question at all. I should have made this more clear in the directions. This is for corn tortillas, NOT crispy tortilla chips — although thinking about it, both would probably work quite well. 🙂

    1. Hi Renee, Yes, of course, you may substitute pinto or red kidney beans instead of the black beans. It will be great!
