6 large flour tortillas
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 to 1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 small can chopped green chili peppers
1 can refried beans
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup water
Brown meat; add onion and garlic. Cook until onions are tender. Drain.
Add salt, pepper, chili powder, tomato sauce and green chili peppers. Stir well.
In a 2 quart casserole dish layer three tortillas, half the meat, half the cheese, all of the refried beans.
Repeat, topping with cheese. I am usually generous with the cheese (isn't everyone?)
Pour the 1/2 cup of water around the edge of the dish along the sides.
Cover and microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes until heated throughout.
Let stand 5 to 10 minutes.
Serve with shredded lettuce, sour cream and tortilla chips.
