Enchilada Bake

I haven't actually died, just been extremely swamped with work stuff in my life. Lame. I've made lots of cupcakes...without photos, but not much actual food in the past few months so when I threw this dinner together the other day and it was so well received by all I thought I should probably at least write down what I did. I don't have a picture (of course) but it looks like Mexican lasagna. It was super simple, one of those "I only have 30 minutes and a pound of hamburger" kinds of meals. ;)

Enchilada Bake
10 servings

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 c. dried, minced onion
1 can spicy jalepeno refried beans
corn tortillas
2 small cans enchilada sauce (I used 2 1/2)
colby jack cheese shredded

  1. Spray 9x13 in baking dish with non stick spray.
  2. Brown ground beef with onions and season with garlic salt. Mix in refried beans and approx 1/2 can of enchilada sauce. I added more sauce because we really like the flavor, do what feels right to you.
  3. Dip tortillas in enchilada sauce and layer them on the bottom of the dish. Spread 1/2 of the meat mixture over them. Sprinkle a layer of cheese over that. Repeat with the remaining meat mixture. Top with a layer of tortillas, pour any remaining sauce over the top, cover with cheese.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 20 min at 375 degrees or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
