2 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp. minced garlic
1 small can black olives, sliced
1 4 oz. can diced green chili peppers
1 10 oz. can diced tomatoes with green chili peppers
2 1/2 cups red taco sauce
1 16 oz. can refried beans (Try fat free.)
12 (8 inch) flour tortillas
9 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté the ground beef for 5 minutes.
Add the onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 more minutes. Drain any excess fat.
Add the olives (save some for the end), green chili peppers, tomatoes,
taco sauce, and refried beans.
Stir mixture thoroughly.
Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Spread a thin layer on the bottom of a 4-quart casserole dish.
Cover with a layer of tortillas, followed by more meat mixture, then a layer of cheese.
Repeat tortilla, meat, and cheese layers until all of the tortillas are used,
ending with a layer of the meat and cheese on top.
Sprinkle with the saved black olives.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is slightly brown and bubbly.
