Cuisine Mexican


  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1 Onion, small to medium chopped
  • 1 pkg Taco Seasoning
  • 1 jar Chopped Green Chilies
  • 1 small jar Salsa
  • 1 can Refried Beans
  • 1 pkg 8-inch Flour Tortillas
  • 1 pkg Shredded Cheddar Cheese


  • Heat oven to 350°
  • Brown ground beef with onion. Drain and add taco seasoning, green chilies, salsa and refried beans; put aside.
  • Reserve 1 flour tortilla. Cut the remaining tortillas in half. (We cut ours in quarters to help cover the pan better.)
  • Cover the bottom of a 9-inch baking dish with tortilla pieces. Spread some of the meat mixture on top of the tortilla, then add some cheddar cheese.
  • Repeat tortillas, meat and cheese steps until all the meat mixture is gone.
  • Cut the reserved tortilla into quarters and place them on top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes to heat through and melt cheese.


  • Serve with Sour cream, guacamole, tortilla chips, lettuce, tomato, peppers, extra salsa, hot sauce or green onions.


This dish as a leftover will become a bit soggy due to the tortillas soaking up the sauce from the meat mixture. Don’t worry though, it will still taste delicious!
