GF Stacked Tortilla Pie

G-F Stacked Tortilla Pie 

One more pinterest recipe modified, tried and tested.  Yum.  The husband wanted to know what the noodles were made of in this casserole.  He was surprised to hear that it was corn tortillas.  It needed the extra spice of salsa.  But, what Mexican recipe doesn't?  

I think the whole thing could have been simplified by layering beans, meat (spiced up with taco seasoning) and tortillas with cheese and baking it.  Simple, delicious and yet not so much spices and work.  

·         In 2 tablespoons canola oil, saute until soft
·         1 large onion, diced
·         1 jalapeno chile, minced (remove seeds and ribs for less heat)
·         2 garlic cloves, minced
·         1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
·         1 tablespoon taco seasoning
·         1/2 can stewed tomatoes
·         1 pound ground beef (cooked)
·         Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
·         ½  package (5 ounces) frozen corn
·         1 cup refried beans
·         4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)
·         4 corn tortillas
1.     Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use an 8-inch round cake pan.
2.     Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, jalapeno, garlic, and cumin; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.  Add cooked meat, corn and tomatoes.  Taste and adjust for seasoning.
3.     Fit a tortilla and another torn in half into the pan, covering the bottom, layer with 1/2 of the refried beans, meat mixture and cheese. Repeat three times, using 1 cup cheese on top layer. Bake until cheese melts, 15-20  minutes.

OK, wish me luck: trying this one so that we can have SOMETHING to eat Mondays and Wednesdays when everyone is busy out of their mind.
