My family loved this Sweet Potato Enchilada Casserole Recipe I made recently, and I’m happy to share with you today. Easy to assemble, and delicious to eat, the kids can help you make dinner! When my friend first told me about mashed sweet potatoes into a Mexican dish, I wasn’t quite sure about it. However, I made the recipe and tweaked it up a bit, and I didn’t even notice them. Sneaking in something healthy into dinner is a great way to get extra vitamins into the kids bodies! I’ve got the photo step-by-step, recipe, and even a fun little video to show you how to easily assemble this meal.

Sweet Potato Enchilada Casserole Recipe

My husband LOVES corn tortillas, so we use a lot of them around our home. I get annoyed when I try to roll them for enchiladas because they often break, but I love the ease of layering them like a Mexican lasagna, so I integrated the two into this recipe.  It’s really a variation of any taco meal, such as nachos or taco salad that we also often make.

I partnered with Borden® Cheese to share something super cheesy, which isn’t hard for me, I love cheese! Whenever I make meals with cheese, my philosophy is “the more the merrier!”

Borden® cheese, crafted with high quality wholesome ingredients, has a wide variety of options for all taste buds, including mild cheddar, mozzarella, Mexican, swiss, sharp cheddar, American, colby jack, and more.

Here are the ingredients at a glance:
