casual casserole


Needing to make something tasty but also needing a lot of it I often turn to baked pasta dishes but that idea just was not ringing my bell and then it hit me - enchiladas!



I dry rubbed some ribs, wrapped them in banana leaves and foil and cooked them until the meat shook off the bone.




I removed the meat from some perfectly roasted ribs.




Layered tortillas cheese, meat and onions.



Covered it in red chile sauce and repeated until the pan was full.




Baked it until it was bubbly and delicious and then set it out to be gobbled up. Sometimes vats of food are the answer.

anette: easy enough to make thats for sure

kenny: thats very decent of you to say - thanks

christina: if you mean easy and plentiful then this is it

angie: I think I wish I said that..thanks

miranda: rib meat is always so tender so it gets "lost" in the enchiladas - which is a good thing

cynthia: I do cook often and I wish I cooked more...

TW: maybe I need to do a lunch delivery service

Mmmmmm...ribs. I love that you used tortillas as the base of the casserole. That's something I'll have to keep in mind next I make a casserole.

TavoLini said...

hahaha--that looks great! I would think some people might be clamoring for those ribs when they came out of the oven ;)

Marjie said...

Vats of food are always the answer. But I'd have stuck to the ribs...maybe...

Janice said...

enchiladas with ribs meat look super terrific!

MaryMoh said...

Gorgeous and delicious looking. I would love a big serving of that. That big piece of ribs looks utterly impressive. Can't come for summer to come to do BBQ. Banana leaves give a beautiful fragrance. We always use it back home.

Jamie said...

Woo Hoo Hoo wow this is fabulous! The ribs I'd probably eat right off the bone but the enchiladas are amazing!

mermayd said...

Beth said...

I was all set to make this today Dog...then the athlete said NO WAY..he wasn't eating that!!! But Austin is all for it. So I'm still gonna make it...just for us!

Nutmeg Nanny said...

Oh man I gotta get me some of those ribs. I'm so hungry right now....

If you have a teenage boy, you need a vat. If my son goes away to college, I'll have to figure out how to cook smaller portions - maybe I'll just freeze half.

Tanya Kristine said...
