Mexican Casserole

I hate rolling enchiladas so this is my way of making the same thing, but without the hassle of rolling.

1# Ground Beef
1 can Refried Beans
Onion
Taco Seasoning (optional)
Soft Flour Tortilla shells
Enchilada Sauce
1 cup plus extra for top ~Cheddar Cheese
Sour Cream
Scallions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Brown the hamburger and onion in a skillet until no longer pink. Add the Taco Seasoning and cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Add the refried beans.

In the meantime, cut up some tortilla shells. I use 3 jumbo size tortillas or 6 taco size ones. I cut them up into bite size pieces.
Drop them into a medium size bowl. Stir in enchilada sauce and 1 cup cheese.
When the meat mixture is heated through, stir that in until it is mixed well.
Pour into a greased 9x9 baking dish.
Sprinkle the top with cheese. Cover with foil.
Heat in the oven for 15-20minutes, remove foil and bake for 5 minutes longer until cheese is browned and bubbly.
Serve with sour cream and chopped scallions.

Cooks notes~This can also be made using corn tortillas instead of flour. Sometimes I skip the tortillas and use cooked pasta noodles instead.

You can use ground chicken or turkey instead of beef.

You can use any kind of cheese you like.
