Tips for Mexican Casseroles

A lot of Mexican food, including casseroles, often call for specific seasonings. Red enchilada Sauce,  Green Enchilada Sauce and Taco Seasoning are among those ingredients. Our homemade sauce and seasoning recipes are simple and delicious.   

To make your casseroles super quick and easy, have frozen shredded chicken or beef on hand.

Make ahead: One of the best aspects of a casserole is that you can make them ahead of time. I like to make a few and have some on hand for a hot meal on a busy day. Freezing and heating casseroles is super simple. Each recipe post should have more specific tips, but in general:

  • Wrap the dish well. I like to wrap the casserole with plastic wrap then again with aluminum foil. Make sure you remove the plastic wrap before heating! 
  • For easy storage and clean up use a disposable pan to freeze the casserole in. You can freeze a casserole in a glass pan, but be sure that you thaw it completely before putting it into the hot oven or the glass can shatter.
  • Cheesy Topping: Frozen cheese sometimes doesn’t melt as well So I like to add another layer of freshly grated cheese before placing it in the oven.
  • Browning: If your casserole seems to be browning too quickly, but the inside isn’t baked yet simply place a tent of foil over the top of the casserole. 
  • Thaw, in the fridge, overnight
