“I found this recipe several weeks ago in a cookbook that had award-winning beef recipes. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds really good and I've added it to my "recipes to make."”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough tortilla pieces to fill, but not crowd the skillet; fry until crisp. Remove with slotted spoon; set aside to drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining tortilla pieces.
  2. Cook and stir ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring to break up meat until beef is browned; drain fat. Add taco or enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, water and taco or enchilada seasoning mix. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes.
  3. Combine beef mixture with 2/3 of fried tortilla pieces in a large bowl; transfer to 13x9-in baking dish. Top with remaining 1/3 of tortilla pieces, cheeses, olives and green onions. Bake until cheeses are melted, about 10 minutes. Serve, and garnish with sour cream and guacamole, if desired.
