Deep Dish Mexican Pizza Bake

"I wasn't much of a school lunch eater. It's probably hard to believe given the path that I've taken and my job these days, but as a kid, going through the lunch line gave me so much anxiety. I was constantly worried I would say the wrong thing, get the wrong food, or not have enough money. Serious anxiety. So imagine my surprise when on my oldest's first day of kindergarten he came home with his lunch untouched and said "oh, I decided I'd rather go in the lunch line!" Hah! Where did that kid come from? There were always one or two days a month where I would make an exception, throw caution to the wind and brave the lunch line . One of those days was Mexican Pizza Day"

The presentation of this recipe in photos is quite enticing. This recipe made my mouth water! I am not familiar with enchilada sauce. Is it spicy? I'd like to try this out with my family. I love refried beans and my toddler granddaughter loves flour tortillas. I like that it is deep dish for a hearty meal.

This Deep Dish Mexican Pizza Bake is a fun recipe that is full of great Mexican flavors. I agree with Edmund K that it is a great variation on lasagna. On that note I swapped out the flour tortillas, and replaced them with lasagna noodles, (I'm just not a big fan of flour tortillas) It turned out terrific, and of course in my family the dish it referred to as Mexican Lasagna. However you make it, or whatever you call it, this recipe is a winner.

What a great variation on lasagna, only with a real Mexican twist. I would love to bring this to a potluck dinner sometime. I think it would go over extremely well, and feeding a batch of people to boot. I do think using corn tortillas in place of the flour tortillas might also be well worth trying since it would provide a bit different taste and texture.

I made a version of this recently in my Instapot. It was almost all the same ingredients except for the enchilada sauce which sounds delicious. I like this recipe because it makes a larger size dish than the Instapot one. My family is not big on refried beans though and so I left those out. Is there something I could substitute those for so there's an extra layer in there?
