1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 packet taco seasoning
1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives (or grab a handful of medium black olives and chop them)
2 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1- 1/2 cups corn (either frozen or a 15.5 ounce can of corn, drained)
1 cup enchilada sauce
1 (15.5 ounce) can refried beans (or two cups)
6 large (burrito-size) tortillas, 3 of them cut in half
12 ounces (3 cups) shredded cheddar, colby jack, or pepperjack cheese (or a combination)
1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
2. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. When the beef is about halfway cooked, add the onion and garlic and cook until the beef is cooked through and the onions and garlic are tender and fragrant.
3. Add the taco seasoning and stir to coat completely, then add the black olives, chilies, tomatoes, corn, enchilada sauce, and refried beans. Bring to a simmer then remove from heat.
4. Spread about 1/2 cup of the mixture onto the bottom of a 9×13″ pan. Top with one whole tortilla and one half. Spread 1-1/2 cups of the mixture on top of the tortillas, sprinkle with cheese, then top with another 1-1/2 tortillas. Repeat until you run out of tortillas, topping with a small amount of the meat mixture and another sprinkling of cheese.
5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serves 12.
