    Delicious and easy! Here are my changes. 1. Grease the pan with cooking spray. 2. Spread refried beans on 1st layer of tortillas. 3. Used chopped fresh tomatoes rather than canned. 4. Added an extra layer...tortillas/beans& beef, cheese & salsa, tortillas, beef, tortillas, taco sauce and cheese. Really good with some sour cream and/or hot sauce on the side!  -  24 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yum Yum Yummmmmmmmy. This was easy to make and delicious. I did lightly coat the pan to keep things from sticking. I put refried beans on top of the first layer of tortillas. In the meat, I added onions and some garlic powder. I used more like 2 cups of cheese but I also added more layers. My layers went like this: Tortilla, refried beans, beef mixture, cheese, tortilla, beef mixture, cheese, tortilla, salsa and a lil more cheese. My mom and grandma tried it at lunch today and loved it as well. I served it with sour cream. The only thing I would do different next time is use 1 1/2 lb of hamburger. I think with the extra layer I needed a bit more.  -  14 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great for leftovers & freezing. You can alter this however you want - I often add black beans and green chiles, and use flour tortillas instead of corn. Like others suggested, putting a layer of "filling" on the bottom of the pan prevents sticking, dried out tortillas.  -  22 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
