This Beef Enchilada Hash Brown Casserole is filling and super easy to make. Grass Fed Ground Beef was on sale at the store this week so I stocked up! Ground meat is perfect for buying in bulk. Simply split it up and freeze it until ready to use.

I made 2lbs worth with taco seasoning so was looking for a new recipe to try out. The first half I ate as a taco salad with a simple lime vinaigrette. I decided to use the other half for a breakfast style dish.

My Whole30 Week 1 Meal Plan included a Paleo Breakfast Casserole by Paleo Running Momma. It used nutritional yeast to add a cheese flavor so I decided to use the “sauce” mix from that recipe and create an enchilada style bake. I had frozen hash browns and riced broccoli in my freezer so used them for the vegetable base.

Feel free to try different vegetables for your base. Sweet potato hash browns, bell peppers, onions, brussel sprouts would all be awesome additions. Serve it up with some fresh avocado and some shredded lettuce if you like!

This dish works great for any meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner! Make a big batch and freeze it to eat throughout your Whole30.
