1lb ground meat ( whatever you prefer- chicken, turkey, pork, beef)
1 lg onion chopped
1 diced green bell pepper
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 can of organic refried beans (Amy’s brand is the best)
1 jar of taco sauce (or a cup of organic salsa)
1 10oz can of enchilada sauce
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
6 tortillas, cut in half (I like to use organic whole wheat)
3 cups of shredded cheese (any kind you like)
Preheat oven 400 degrees
Add olive oil to a skillet and heat on medium. Then add onions and peppers and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the meat and cook until no longer pink.
Then add the seasonings, salt and pepper, and combine thoroughly.
Add in the garlic, refried beans, taco sauce, and enchilada sauce and simmer on medium heat for about 2-3 min.
While the mixture is simmering, cut the tortillas in half so they resemble half moons.
In a rectangular baking dish, create one layer of the tortillas, then spoon in some of the mixture so it covers the tortillas evenly, and then sprinkle with the shredded cheese.
Repeat above steps one more time then bake for about 15 minutes or just until cheese is slightly brown and contents are bubbly.
* Instead of chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper you can substitute with ½ package of taco seasoning. (However, there is also more sodium and preservatives in the pre-packaged seasoning mixes)* To make this vegetarian, substitute the meat for tofu (or add other veggies) and use vegetarian refried beans.
*If you like it hot you can add a pinch or several of cayenne pepper to the mixture.
