Mexican layered tortilla dish
  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • Servings: 4 to 6
  • Preparation Time: 30 or 40 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)
  1. Cook the ground beef, to your own pleasing. I always cooked with salt and a little pepper, maybe some all Italian spices.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
