  • Quick fry tortillas in oil for 2 to 3 seconds on each side; drain.
  • Line the bottom of a 9-inch square baking pan with 3 tortillas, then start layering sauce, creme cheese, and all of the ingredients. The top will only have sauce, cream and cheese.
  • The ingredients from the refried beans down are all suggestions. You can put in any combination you like of the meats, depending on what you have on hand.
  • Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350°.
