1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium (1 cup) onion, chopped
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic
2 tablespoons taco seasoning mix
3 cups shredded Monterey jack and/or Cheddar cheese
8 (10-inch) flour tortillas
1 (10-ounce) can enchilada sauce
1 (16-ounce) can refried beans
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles
1 small (1/2 cup) tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives
sour cream
Finely chopped fresh cilantro, if desired


Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 12-inch pizza pan with no-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Place ground beef, onion and garlic into 10-inch skillet; cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 5-7 minutes or until beef is browned.  Drain. Stir in taco seasoning mix; set aside.

Place 1 tortilla onto 12-inch pizza pan; spread with about 2 1/2 tablespoons enchilada sauce, leaving 1-inch around edge of tortilla. Repeat with second tortilla and sauce. Top with half of  beef mixture and 1 cup cheese. Place 1 tortilla on top; spread with sauce. Top with 1 tortilla spread with refried beans and chiles. Repeat layers of 2 more tortillas and sauce; top with remaining beef mixture and 1 cup cheese. Place last 2 tortillas and remaining sauce over beef, ending with sauce.

Bake 30 minutes. Top with remaining cheese. Continue baking 8-10 minutes or until cheese begins to melt. Sprinkle with tomato and olives. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into wedges with serrated knife. Garnish with sour cream and cilantro.
