Posted in response to a request. A simple inexpensive family dinner with mild flavors. Note recipe makes 3 casseroles, 4-5 servings each, for freezing, but recipe is easily cut down for immediate cooking. From Frozen Assets by Deborah Taylor-Hough, a OAMC book.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef and onion; add seasonings and tomato sauce.
  2. In 3 2-quart casserole dishes (I use 3 square foil pans for freezing), alternate layers of tortillas (can be cut into 1-inch pieces), meat sauce, olives and cheese.
  3. Add 1/2 c water to each casserole. Cover tightly. Label and freeze. Thaw casserole completely.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

This was an excellent recipe -- When I made it, about a month ago, DH and I each had 2nds. It froze well too: I cooked it Friday night when I was just too drained to make the supper I had planned -- put it in the oven frozen and ate about an hour later.
