1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
2 1/2 cups red taco
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
12 (8 inch) flour tortillas
shredded Cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
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 chile 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.
