I was going through some old emails, and I came across Goofynina's recipe that she gave me last Christmas. She was so helpful -  I even called her from the market and she walked me through buying the ingredients.
I thought I would include it here. It's not likely to be renal friendly, but it was great for my family on Christmas eve. Missing you so much Susie.  :'(

Goofynina's Enchilada Casserole

I was thinkin' maybe if might be easier if you make an enchilada casserole instead of enchiladas,  I am including the instructions just in case you want to go this route...
1 lb. Ground Beef
1/4 onion finely chopped
2 cans olives (1 finely chopped and one sliced)
2 dozen corn tortilla
1 can Las Palmas Enchilada  Sauce
shredded cheddar cheese
shredded monterey jack cheese
garlic powder
glass cake pan
Brown Ground Beef and drain,
add chopped onions and olives and cook for an extra 5 minutes
add your salt, pepper and garlic powder
cut corn tortillas into approx. 1" squares
stir corn tortillas in with meat and let cook for 5-10 minutes (to soften tortillas)
slowly pour in the enchilada sauce and stir lightly (not to make it too mushy)
After tortillas are somewhat softened, take a scoop and put it in the cake pan,
 keep adding mixture to cake pan and flatten to form a bottom layer,
take your cheddar and monterey jack cheese and sprinkle to cover that layer
and repeat until all mixture is layered in pan with cheeses on top
bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until  cheese is melted
top your casserole with
sour cream
sliced avocado
slice olives
and some Parmesian cheese
(that is how we like to eat them) lol
Now for the rice (which can be cooked while your casserole is cooking
1/3 cup oil
1/2 of the 1/4 onion thinly sliced
1 cup of rice
1 can tomatoe sauce
2 cups of water
garlic powder
Knorrs Chicken Bouillon (optional)
heat oil in fry pan (one with a tight fitting lid) remember rice will expand so make sure the pan is big enough (but not too big, unless doubling the recipe)
brown rice and onions together
once rice is a light brown,
stir in can of tomatoe sauce and 2 cups of water
add your salt, pepper, garlic powder and a tablespoon of Knorrs Chicken Bouillon and slowly stir,
bring to boil
reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes
Refried Beans
oil (or bacon fat if avaliable)
can of pinto beans
get oil nice and hot and pour in the beans,
allow the beans to simmer a bit but dont let all the juice evaporate,
smash and enjoy
Let me know if you have any questions, i'll be happy to help you out anyway i can.

My family will love this.  Thanks for sharing it.  It will be nice to see Goofynina's name in my recipe box.  :cuddle;

It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.

many years ago, i had a very good friend who was an excellent cook...he would share a favorite recipe with me whenever i had occasion calling for a special meal...he is gone now, but he lives on in his recipes...any time i use one, he is right there alive and well in my mind, my heart, and my kitchen.

gone but not forgotten? no, for what they've given us they've never really left.
