It has been established elsewhere in this blog that I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD.  I usually try to plan at least one mexican food night per week.  Tonight’s entree was enchilada-zagna, and it is my take on a recipe that came from the Carnation website.  (Carnation makes evaporated milk, and they also came up with a winner for this recipe!).  Absolutely delicious. 🙂

4) Spread 1 cup of enchilada sauce mixture on the bottom of the prepared pan.  Layer 4 tortillas, 1 cup enchilada sauce mixture, half the chicken, and 1 cup of the cheese sauce.  Repeat layers one more time, starting with the tortillas.  Top with the last 4 tortillas, enchilada sauce mixture, and cheese sauce.  Cover with foil.

5) Cover and bake for 40 minutes.  Uncover and bake for an additional 15 – 20 minutes.

6) Uncover and cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

7) Enjoy!



  1. I don’t know why I didn’t know you loved Mexican food until this blog some months ago, but you know what this means, right? You absolutely have to visit me in Los Angeles where there are some really awesome Mexican restaurants. At the last place I went to, Paco’s Tacos, they hand make their own corn tortillas in front of you, and it’s so delicious. There are so many South American restaurants here that are really good, and many different varieties like Oaxacan (pronounced “wahakan”) Argentinian, and Cuban. I will have to fly you over sometime when I get enough Jet Blue points. Thanks for this recipe and all the other ones. Lovely pictures, especially!
