Beef Tortilla Stack
This is a recipe I have grown up eating my entire life. And it is so simple and delicious! I just made it again this past weekend, and decided to share! I hope you enjoy as well!
1 lb. ground beef
12 corn tortillas
1 14. oz can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 large can sliced olives
Shredded cheddar cheese (about 2 cups)
Brown your meat in a skillet. Once cooked through, add tomato sauce and chili powder and remove from heat. Layer the ingredients in a 6 inch round baking dish. Layers: 3 tortillas, meat sauce, olives, cheese and repeat until the ingredients are gone, ending with cheese on top. (I usually end up with about 3 layers.) Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
I like to serve this dish with sour cream, guacamole, and shredded lettuce and eat it almost like a taco salad. Sooo yummy! You can also substitute the beef for ground turkey or shredded cooked chicken. I have tried both ways and they are both very good and much lighter as well! In fact, I think me and my husband prefer them now over the beef!
Also, this recipe is GLUTEN FREE! Wahoo! Just double check your corn tortillas. Mission brand has a yellow corn tortilla that actually says "gluten free" on the back of the package, just FYI.
