A pie stuffed with Mexican goodness! When I made this I got one piece and my boyfriend ate the rest... it's just as easy to make two pies and then you have some for lunch the next day!
- 1⁄2 lb lean ground beef or 1 (330 g) package vegetarian ground beef
- 1⁄2 cup chopped white onion
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green pepper
- 1 -2 jalapeno pepper (sliced)
- 1 1⁄4 cups enchilada sauce
- 1 (8 ounce) can refried beans (I use the one with chiles)
- 4 8-inch flour tortillas
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup salsa (mild, medium or hot)
- 1 cup guacamole
- 1 cup sour cream
- Fry the ground beef in a medium-sized skillet.
- Add the onion, green pepper and jalapeno once the ground beef is light gray.
- Shred the cheese and mix the two cheeses together.
- Make sure the beef is cooked thoroughly and then turn off the heat and stir in 1 cup enchilada sauce.
- Put one tortilla on the bottom of a non-stick 8" cake pan.
- Spread half of the refried beans evenly on the tortilla.
- Sprinkle 1/4 of the cheese on top and then cover it with a tortilla.
- Spread the beef mixture on top and then cover it with a 1/4 of the cheese.
- Add another tortilla, cover it with the rest of the refried beans and 1/4 of the cheese.
- Add the last tortilla.
- Spread 1/4 cup enchilada sauce evenly on top.
- Add the rest of the cheese.
- Cook at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until your pie is hot and bubbly.
- Cut into quarters.
- Let diners add their own combination of sour cream, salsa, and guacamole on top.
3 for 3... we enjoyed this recipe. The only changes I made was increase the beef & cut back the cheese. Easy to put together & even easier to devourer, thanks for sharing.
I needed a 'quick and easy' dinner today and this was perfect, mainly because I could make sensible substitutions! I used ground turkey instead of beef and for the green pepper/jalapeno pepper...I used a 4-oz. can of diced green chiles, drained. I had 7 flour tortillas to use up so I used 3 as the base and just built up from there. Also, I used a 2 cup package of already shredded Mexican blend of cheese that I had on hand. The refrieds are easier to spread if you heat them up a bit beforehand. Thanks Tanya...this is a simple, yet tasty recipe that is very versatile and uses up stuff that may be hanging around in your pantry and fridge. It's a Smart recipe!!
This recipe was GREAT! i used soy crumbles instead of meat and it was still great! My boyfriend even loved it! Thank you for sharing!!
