If it’s a mexican recipe, and I stumble across it, chances are I will make it. I had to adapt the recipe for these quite a bit because I didn’t have a few of the ingredients. These were still really good, and I think it is safe to say that with the omitted items they would be even better! This recipe is from For the Love of Cooking, which is a new blog I have found that I really enjoy… you should check it out!

- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 lb of lean ground beef (I used 93/7)
- 1/2 sweet yellow onion, diced
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 tsp onion powder
- Dash of red pepper flakes
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
- 1 4 oz can of diced green chiles
- Flour Tortillas
- Refried beans
- Cheddar cheese, grated
- Tomato, diced (omitted)
- Avocado, diced (omitted)
- Green onions, diced (omitted)
- Fresh cilantro, chopped (omitted)
- Sour Cream (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat. (I didn’t have the mat. I did line the sheet with parchment paper).
- Layer a flour tortilla with refried beans then place on baking sheet.
- Add a bit of the beef mixture then top with another tortilla.
- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes; remove from oven and spoon a bit of salsa on top of the top tortilla then top with cheese.
- Return to the oven and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
- Remove from the oven and top with the tomatoes, avocado, green onions and fresh cilantro. (This is the step I had to omit due to lack of ingredients… I am not a tomato girl, but I am pretty sure that avocados would have made this even better then it was!)
- Serve with more salsa and sour cream. Enjoy.
