Rabbit Enchilada Casserole

Rabbit Enchilada Casserole

Today’s recipe takes us a little south of the border.  A one dish rabbit enchilada casserole that is layered like a lasagna.  Putting two of our favorite dishes together – the ease of a casserole with the flare of enchiladas!  Let’s be honest, making enchiladas is work and half the time the tortillas crack and make a mess…or maybe that’s just my house.  This stacking rabbit enchilada casserole is quick and easy; not to mention it is crack free.

We love the rich flavor the green chilis provide this dish.  Great for feeding a crowd of freeze leftovers for a later date.

Green Chili Rabbit Enchilada Casserole – Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375
  2. Heat the green chili in a sauce pan over medium heat.
  3. Cover the bottom of a 13″ x 9″ baking dish with a thin layer of the green chili sauce to prevent the casserole from sticking.
  4. Then add flour tortillas to completely cover. You may need to cut the tortillas to make them fit properly.
  5. Now your layers will go as follows:
  6. Sauce
  7. Rabbit & Onion (+ cilantro if you want it)
  8. Cheese to cover the layer
  9. Tortillas
  10. Sauce again
  11. You want to be sure your top layer is a good thick covering of cheese.
  12. Put your casserole on top of a cookie sheet to catch any spill and put it in the oven.
  13. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 – 60 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
  14. Let the casserole settle for about 15 – 20 minutes before cutting and serving.

Great topped with a little more fresh cilantro, sour cream or guacamole.
