layer casseroleI really like homemade food the best but sometimes you just do not have the time to prepare foods that take a considerable amount of time to prepare. Enchilada are one of these. To get around the time to prepare this meal I make a pressure cooker casserole. To make an even better tasting meal you can make you own enchilada sauce.  So when I have time I make Mariel’s .  With a busy day I do for the fast way which is still very good. You can prepare Mariel’s sauce, make you own or even faster use a canned sauce. You will need about 2 cups of sauce. I used a pork roast I cooked in the canned enchilada sauce inside the pressure cooker for 35 minutes on high pressure. Ground beef works well too.

Layered Enchilada Casserole

One pound of ground beef, pork or other meat, cooked, and shredded

2 cups sauce

1 1/2 cups shredded cheese, cheddar or mexican blend


Mis the meat and sauce. Put 1/4 of the sauce and meat in the pan. Layer with three tortilla overlapping, add 1/4 cup of the sauce and layer 4 more times. Put lid on pressure cooker and cook for 5 minutes. Remove top after it complete the time by releasing the pressure. Top with the cheese and let it set for 10 minutes before serving.
