Join The Lil Chef and Myself on our "Food Adventures"! There will be recreations of "Old Classics", exploration of new Allergy Free products (as they come out), the making of my many food cravings, and testing of recipes. We are ALWAYS trying to raise awareness of food allergies & intolerances one post at a time.

( I got this Recipe from Pinterest, via http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2011/10/cheesy-enchilada-casserole.html that was originally from Just Get Off Your Butt and Bake)
I really like this recipe, of course I will switch some things around to suit my food issues as usual but feel free to follow the recipe as is.
