Mexican Casserole

Those who know me, know that I just love mexican food. This is a very simple casserole with a great mexican food taste:

1 1/2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 - 16 ounce can refried beans
1 - 15 ounce can tomato sauce
1 - 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
1 - 2 1/4 ounce can sliced ripe olives, drained
3/4 cup green onions, sliced
6 - 8 inch tortillas
1 package taco seasoning mix

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and drain. Add in the beans, tomato sauce and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 15 minutes.

In a casserole dish, place 2 tortillas side by side. Spread 1/3 of the meat mixture over the tortillas. Next, sprinkle 1/3 of the tomatoes, green onions, olives and cheese. Repeat these layers twice more. End with cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Slice and serve with a dollop of sour cream and a slice of avocado.
