    Sounds like our very long time favorite enchilada casserole. We make that with ground beef. I love me some brisket though!

    I believe they are called New Mexico style enchiladas. I like making them, easier than rolling each enchilada and you can just slice like lasagna. Scrumptious chef, your recipe with brisket sounds delicious. I will have to try it that way.
