Another fantastic casserole dish is my Unstuffed Dolma Casserole. It’s a great way to make Dolmas without actually having to roll up each grape leaf individually.
Not really rolled up enchiladas done properly, but good in a pinch I think. One thing I will say, is don’t add the cheese in during cooking and if possible, don’t skip the final browning step. That melty, goeey, bubbling cheese is really what makes this casserole most inviting.
Variation to this Casserole could include homemade enchilda sauce, or substituting ground beef for the chicken. In that case, reduce cook times to 5 minutes.
