Kittencal's Enchilada Stack

Total Time
1hr 30mins
Prep 30 mins
Cook 1 hr

Do not spread the sour cream directly over the tortillas as it will cause the tortilla to turn soggy, if desired a can of drained black beans can be added into the ground beef mixture, I also like to sprinkle about 3 chopped green onions on before adding on the shredded cheese just on the top layer --- this is *very* good!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs ground beef or 1 12 lbs ground turkey
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 small green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic (or to taste)
  • seasoned salt and black pepper (to taste)
  • 1 -2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped (optional or to taste)
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (7 ounce) jar salsa (mild or spicy)
  • 3 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream (can use more or less)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (can use more or less)
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies (I usually use 2 cans)


  1. Set oven to 375 degrees F (set oven rack to second-lowest position).
  2. Grease a round 10-inch baking dish (I use a 9 or 10-inch round cake pan or a pie plate).
  3. Cook ground beef or turkey with the onion, bell pepper, garlic and jalapeno peppers (if using) until crumbly and cooked through; drain off the fat.
  4. Mix in the taco seasoning mix; cook stirring 2 minutes.
  5. Add in salsa; mix to combine and simmer uncovered for about 25 minutes, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. To assemble; place 1 tortilla in the bottom of the pan then sprinkle 1/3 of the ground beef mixture over the tortilla, then dollup 1/3 the sour cream over the ground beef then carefully spread out using back of a spoon or a knife.
  7. Sprinkle 1/3 the chilies over the sour cream, then 1/3 of the shredded cheddar cheese.
  8. Repeat two more times (you should have used 3 tortillas) ending up with the cheese on the top.
  9. Cover loosley with foil (making certain not to allow the foil to touch the cheese or the cheese will stick to the foil).
  10. Bake for about 1 hour.

My husband said the excellent flavor of this makes you want to eat more than you should! This tastes just like sour cream enchiladas. I had to use a 8X8 pyrex pan so I just had three layers of everything, but it turned out great. Very easy to make! Thanks for a great recipe!

We used corn tortillas as we like those better than the flour. We used chicken mixed with cream cheese, and taco seasoning for the meat layer, and I added a layer of Mexican rice. Came out excellent!
