After a couple of weeks of breakfast items, we now return you to a family-sized dinner. This was an experimental cooking success. Feel free to modify the ingredients as you see fit. The only thing that is set in stone on this recipe is you want the beef layered at the bottom and top and the cheese at the top. See below.
-1 ½ lbs ground beef
-1 can diced tomatoes
-1 medium onion
-1 clove chopped garlic
-1 sweet pepper
-(optional) 1 or more jalapeno peppers
-3 prepared and chopped tomatillos
-1 can re-fried beans
-Mexican seasoning (chili powder, cumin, garlic, oregano, coriander, salt, and pepper)
-shredded cheddar cheese
-large Flour tortillas
Brown the meat with the seasoning. Add can of diced tomatoes. Set aside. Pan fry the onion, garlic, and peppers until the peppers are soft. Add tomatillos. Set aside. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Layer the bottom of a cake pan with flour tortillas. You want it to fill the pan as much as possible. If you have to, rip up two tortillas to cover the bottom. Add a thin layer of the beef. Layer tortillas. Add the peppers and onions mixture. Layer tortillas. Add a layer of beans. Layer tortillas. Add a layer of cheese. Layer tortillas. Add another layer of beef. Layer tortillas. Top with a layer of cheese. Bake 20-30 minutes or until hot all the way through.
