To freeze: Spray 2 (8-inch) disposable foil cake pans with cooking spray. After covering pans with sprayed foil, place in gallon-size resealable freezer plastic bags, or wrap in double layer of plastic wrap. Label and freeze.

To bake: Thaw overnight in refrigerator. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove from plastic, and place foil-covered pan(s) on cookie sheet. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted in center reads 165 degrees F. If baking from frozen, bake 1 hour, then remove foil and bake 10 to 15 minutes.

Bean salsa, corn salsa or a mix of both make these easy enchiladas special, but any salsa will do in a pinch.

Shredded lettuce, guacamole, salsa and sour cream all make great garnishes for this easy baked dinner.
