Cheesy Beef Enchilada Casserole

We love enchiladas!  You know how you fill them, roll them & they still seem to mush together?  Well, here's an easy version.  You just layer the corn tortillas & it's almost like a Mexican lasagna.  I hope you try it.  The picture's not the greatest, but I promise, it tastes great!

1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can (7 oz.) chopped green chilies
2 cans (10 oz. each) red enchilada sauce
12 corn tortillas
3 cups Mexican style cheese
sour cream, if desired

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

Cook ground beef & onion in a large skillet over medium-high  heat.  Stir in green chilies & 1 can enchilada sauce.

Meanwhile, pour 1/2 can enchilada sauce in bottom of bottom of baking dish.  Arrange 8 tortilla halves over the sauce.  Spoon half of the ground beef mixture over the tortillas.  Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese.  Repeat layers of tortillas, ground beef & 1 cup cheese.  End by placing the remaining 8 tortilla halves on top.  Spread remaining enchilada sauce over the tortillas.  Cover with foil.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until bubbly around the edges & thoroughly heated.  Uncover; sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese.  Bake, uncovered, 5 minutes.  Serve with sour cream.

Makes 8 servings
