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!

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!
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground beef or 1 1⁄2 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)
Directions See How It's Made
- Set oven to 375 degrees F (set oven rack to second-lowest position).
- Grease a round 10-inch baking dish (I use a 9 or 10-inch round cake pan or a pie plate).
- 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.
- Mix in the taco seasoning mix; cook stirring 2 minutes.
- Add in salsa; mix to combine and simmer uncovered for about 25 minutes, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
- 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.
- Sprinkle 1/3 the chilies over the sour cream, then 1/3 of the shredded cheddar cheese.
- Repeat two more times (you should have used 3 tortillas) ending up with the cheese on the top.
- Cover loosley with foil (making certain not to allow the foil to touch the cheese or the cheese will stick to the foil).
- Bake for about 1 hour.
