Makes four to six servings
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup of chopped onion
1 clove of garlic minced
2T chili powder
1 tsp cumin
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1 16 oz can of green enchilada sauce
white corn tortillas
1 cup of shredded cheese
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a skillet combine the onion, garlic and ground beef and brown. Add the chili powder, cumin, cayenne and oregano.
Stir and reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for an additional five minutes. Drain the excess fat.
Grease the bottom of an 8" by 8" casserole dish. Place a layer of white corn tortillas and place half of the meat mixture on top.
Next add 1/3 of the enchilada sauce and 1/3 of the cheese.
Finish by placing a layer of corn tortillas on top, spreading the remaining sauce and cheese over that.
Place in the oven and cook for 35 to 45 minutes - until it's nice a bubbly on top.
Remove from the oven and let rest for five minutes. Plate it up and add your favorite condiments: black olives, sour cream, cilantro, salsa. mmmmmmmmmm......
You can easily mix this up by using red sauce instead of green, or your favorite taco mix packet instead of the spices I used. Ground turkey works as a healthier substitute for the ground beef.
