We can think of tons of occasions where this enchilada casserole recipe would fit in, including weeknight dinners and potlucks. If you're going to tote this cheese-topped casserole to share, cover it tightly with foil that's been coated with nonstick cooking spray (this will keep the cheese from sticking!).
