Green Chile Enchilada Bake The Southern Lady Cooks

Green chile enchilada bake takes no time to prepare and makes a great weeknight dinner. Plus, it’s delicious. My family loves this dish and I never mind making it because it takes very little effort. I make this recipe with ground turkey but you can easily use ground beef or even ground pork. I make mine in a cast-iron skillet but it can easily be made in a 9X13 casserole dish. This dish is great comfort food!

Ingredients Needed for Green Chile Enchilada Bake:

Ground beef or ground turkey

Green chile enchilada sauce

Canned green chiles

Taco seasoning

Black beans

Cream cheese

Shredded Monterrey Jack / Colby cheese ( can use any cheese you like)


Notes: This dish is so versatile. You can certainly use Cool Ranch Doritos or any flavor that your family enjoys. If you don’t like black beans, use pinto or kidney. I’ve never made this dish with ground chicken but I’m sure it would be great.

If you like this dish, you may want to also try our chicken tortilla chip casserole. This recipe has fantastic reviews and is always a hit when we serve it.

  1. Did not say when to add the taco seasoning. I added it after the meat was done and then the rest.
    Having this tonight sounds so good. Thanks for the recipe.5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hello, the recipe states “brown turkey with taco seasoning over medium heat.” As long as it’s added to the meat while it’s hot, it should be fine. Hope you enjoyed it! Thanks!

  2. My family loves this casserole. It’s so good and even better if you can find the Salsa Verde Doritos.5 stars

  3. This looks really good and I don’t want to ruin it! Should the black beans be drained before adding them? Thank you

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hi, no I didn’t drain them but you certainly can if you like, it won’t ruin it. 🙂

  4. Fran Whitaker says:

    Do you think low salt tortilla chips would alter this recipe to much? I’m trying to lower the salt a little bit. It sounds and looks delicious. Thanks.

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      No, I think that would work just fine 🙂

  5. This recipe is delicious. My family loves it. Thank you!5 stars
