How to make enchilada noodle casserole

Print this recipe
The recipe below has all of the bright, spiced flavor of enchiladas without all the work of filling and rolling tortillas. Instead, the enchilada sauce is tossed with cooked noodles and ground beef and topped with lots of gooey cheese.
Sweet corn adds even more flavor to this casserole—you can easily use fresh corn when it's in season, but frozen corn is just as nice in the winter.
