Ingredients

  • 2

    lbs (or so) gr. beef

  • 1/2

    of an onion, chopped

  • 1

    bell pepper, chopped

  • 2

    pkg. taco mix

  • 1-1/2

    c. Water

  • Flour tortillas

  • Crispy Corn tortilla chips

  • Mexican blend cheese, grated

  • Velveeta Shreds (optional)

Directions

Brown gr. beef with bell pepper and onion. Drain. Add taco seasoning and water. Let simmer while you make the enchilada sauce (recipe below). In a 9x13 baking dish, spread about 1/2 c. Enchilada sauce on bottom. Cut the flour tortillas to fit the pan to make 1 layer. Crumble a couple of handfuls of the crispy corn tortilla chips over the flour tortillas. Sprinkle about half the meat mixture over the chips. Drizzle with enchilada sauce, saving some for the next layer. Sprinkle with cheese. Repeat another layer, finishing with cheese. Bake at 375° for about 15 minutes. Serve with chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream, salsa, etc. Optional add-in: Cooked pinto beans: Mix into meat mixture before layering. Retried beans: Just add another layer while you are layering Enchilada sauce 2 Tbsp. vegetable or canola oil 2 Tbsp. flour 4 Tbsp. chili powder 1/2 tsp. garlic powder 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. cumin 1/4 tsp. oregano 2 cups chicken broth Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and stir together over the heat for one minute. Stir in the remaining seasonings (chili powder through oregano). Then gradually add in the chicken broth, whisking constantly to remove lumps. Reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes until thick. Use immediately or refrigerate in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.
