Serves 4 to 6 | Prep Time 30 or 40 minutes | Cook Time 20 minutes


Flour or Corn Tortillas (either will work, but they'll change the dish)
1 Jar of Salsa (i always used store bought, but fresh salsa will work just fine)
1 lb cooked ground beef (Or chicken, or any meat substitute of your choosing)
1 can refried beans
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (or Colby cheese)

Cook the ground beef, to your own pleasing. I always cooked with salt and a little pepper, maybe some all Italian spices.

Take a rectangular casserole dish. Butter or spray the dish, bottom and all sides. Lay a layer of tortilla. Then spread a layer of beans. Then a layer of salsa. Then a layer of beef. A layer of cheese. A layer of tortilla. Repeat as needed. The order doesn't matter. Leave a layer of cheese for the top.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Cook dish uncovered for 20 minutes, or until the tortilla starts to lightly brown.

This is a dish I invented one day years ago, that's really easy to make. I never took exact measurements, so much of this is guesstimating, but it's that kind of dish that can be made a bunch of ways that always work. This meal that can be changed or varied as one wishes.
