This week’s recipe swap theme was Mexican, and I got this recipe for Cheese Enchilada Casserole from Alida of Alida’s Kitchen. It was very easy to make, with only a few ingredients, and although I would definititely increase the amount of cheese (at least double), it tasted really good! I’m not usually a fan of cheese enchiladas, I prefer beef or chicken, but these were good enough to be put into rotation – you should try them!

Your picture looks delicous! Double the cheese sounds like a great idea. I'm glad you liked the recipe!
I'm not a fan of cottage cheese, maybe I could sub in ricotta instead? Looks tasty though! I wanted to invite you over to my cookbook giveaway that is going on right now until July 16th. Stop on by to enter! Hope you are having a great week 🙂
