Expert Tips

Crisp watermelon and mango cubes or grapes, tortilla chips and lime-flavored sparkling water are cool accompaniments for this flavorful casserole.

This casserole layers traditional enchilada ingredients between corn tortillas, lasagna-style.

For spicier lasagna, use a "hot" enchilada sauce.
