Enchilada Casserole

I am on a roll. And at least one of you better make one of these dishes on here and then post how you liked it. Please?
If you're going to make anything, make this!
Enchilada casserole is a staple in our house. It's simple, cheap and feeds the picky masses (aka my omni sisters). Mix it up, add some fall veggies, or a different "meat".

corn tortillas (just buy the package if you're lazy)
1 can enchilada sauce or one recipe homemade enchilada sauce
1 small can diced mild green chiles
2 packages soyrizo (I like TJ- cheaper than any other brand)
1 chopped onion
1 rd or green pepper
1 box whole grain spanish rice

Cook rice according to box
Saute chopped onion and pepper in 1 tablespoon of water. Add soyrizo and cook until hot. Add 1 can mild green chiles. Mix and set aside.
Preheat oven to 375
Spoon a thin layer of sauce in a large casserole dish (about 11x14 ish).
Cut tortillas in half and layer them in the dish (you can set them rounded edge to straight or rounded to rounded, your choice). Spread soyrizo and veggie mixture on tortillas.
Spread rice on soyrizo mix.
Place another layer of halved tortillas in the dish and top with sauce. Repeat the soyrizo mixture and rice. Add another layer of tortillas and repeat if still more soyrizo. Top with tortillas and a layer of sauce.

Bake until hot, about 15 minutes.
Serve with chips, salsa and guacamole.

Here is the enchilada sauce (terrible pic, but I wanted you to get an idea)- my first time making it from scratch. I am never going back!
