This is one of DH's favorites. He and the kids just devour it! It is very easy and fast to get together. This was his Granny's recipe.
- 1 -1 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder or 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 (15 ounce) can ranch-style beans with jalapenos
- 10 corn tortillas
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can tomato soup
- 1⁄4 lb Velveeta cheese, thinly sliced
- 4 ounces shredded lettuce (I use 1/2 an 8oz. bag of preshredded lettuce)
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Brown ground beef with garlc. Drain and reserve grease.
- Pour entire can of beans into food processor and pulse until the reach a paste consistency. (I have done this with a potato masher).
- Mix ground beef into bean mixture.
- Heat reserved grease back up. Dip the corn tortillas in until just softened. I usually just put them in, wait a sec, flip over, then remove. (You can add some vegetable oil if you do not have much beef grease) Drain on paper towels.
- Oil a 9x13 casserole dish.
- Take a tortilla, fold in half. Then spread the beef mixture on one side and close. This is almost like filling a taco. Place in pan. Do this to all the tortillas.
- Mix the tomato soup with 1/3 cup of water. Pour over tacos.
- Cover the top of the casserole with shredded lettuce.
- Top the lettuce with thinly sliced Velveeta.
- Bake until the Velveeta is melted.
- We eat this with crackers and a nice salad.
