Enchilada Casserole

Taste of Home Magazine, Premiere Edition
Servings: 6



This zippy Mexican casserole is a real winner at our house. It's so flavorful and filling, we usually just accompany it with rice and black beans. If your family has spicier tastes, increase the chili powder and use a medium or hot salsa. —Julie Huffman New Lebanon, Ohio



1½ pounds ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup water
2 to 3 tablespoons chili powder
1½ teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon pepper
