  1. STEP 1

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

  2. STEP 2

  3. STEP 3

    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.
