Wow this turned out fabulous! Tortilla’s with layered taco flavored ground beef, salsa, cheese, taco sauce and refried beans …….Yum! You can make this in an 8” or 10” cast iron pan but you can also use any oven safe dish that is about the size of the tortilla like a 4 quart casserole dish.

In a large frying pan, cook ground beef

Spread half of the refried beans over

the salsa. I put the beans into a bowl

and stirred them with a spoon to

make them easier to spread.

Add half of the ground beef mixture.

Now repeat – tortilla, salsa, refried

beans, ground beef and cheese

(only add 1/2 cup cheese saving the

other 1/2 cup for later).

Cover with a lid or foil and bake in a

preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

 

19AB0216-2426-47CF-B481-E658F4758DF2

Remove the pan from the oven and

add 1/2 cup of remaining cheese. Place

the pan back into the oven, uncovered,

for 3 minutes or until the cheese melts.

 

A40B3510-3D56-4E60-9F72-BB84D6AB5940

Remove from the oven and add the

green onion and diced tomato.

  1. Diane,
    I want to try this one. I don’t own a cast iron skillet. Do you think you can do a post where you recommend some cast iron skillet brand…and maybe another one where you recommend some basic cooking/baking ware everyone should have in their kitchen.
    Thanks
