Hatch Chile Enchilada Casserole

Oh, casseroles. I just can’t quit you. 

Cozy, filling, flavorful, delicious and easy. Those are all the words I like to describe a good casserole. You know, sometimes casseroles get a bad rep for how unhealthy they are and that they are just a big pile of slop. Well, slop or not… if they taste good I am *all about* a casserole — and I’m all about this Hatch Chile Enchilada Casserole.

This one is SUPER EASY, absolutely delicious and it just so happens to be Paleo compliant! As you’re mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl you may think to yourself… “errr… Alex? I don’t know about this one?” That’s ok. I was thinking the same thing to myself when making this Hatch Chile Enchilada Casserole. haha! But the flavors really came through and it was absolutely DELICIOUS! My husband, a casserole skeptic, even loved it. 

So yeah. Get those aprons on and get to casserole cooking, my friends!

    Am I missing where to put the cassava tortillas? Just on the top?

        Oh goodness…not sure how i missed that. I made it and just put them on the top. It was good but I knew right away that wasn’t right. I will make this again though because I really liked it, despite screwing it up. I am sure it will be even better when I make it right. haha! Thanks for such good recipes!
