  1. In a saucepan, combine sauce mix, water, tomato paste, garlic, pepper & salt. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. In a skillet, brown the beef and drain. Stir in 1/3 of sauce.
  3. Spread 1/3 of sauce in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13" baking dish. Place 3 tortillas over sauce, tearing to fit the bottom of pan. Spoon half of the meat mixture over the tortillas, then sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups of the cheddar cheese.
  4. Add 3 more tortillas. Spread refried beans over tortillas, then top with remaining meat. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups of the cheddar cheese.
  5. Layer remaining tortillas, then top with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
  7. While it is baking, prepare topping ingredients into small containers and arrange on a serving tray.
  8. Serve casserole with topping tray so guests can choose whatever toppings they desire. (Can also be served plain without toppings and it's still very good).
