How to Make It

Heat the oven to 350°F.  Cook the beef and pepper in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat. Stir the Italian sauce, 1 cup picante sauce and chili powder in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spread the remaining picante sauce in a 3-quart shallow baking dish.  Arrange 4 tortillas on the bottom of the dish, overlapping if needed.  Layer with half the beef mixture, half the cheese and half the olives.  Repeat the layers. Bake for 20 minutes or until the filling is hot and bubbling and the cheese is melted.  Let stand for 5 minutes.

    Was told to make again!!!

    Everyone love this dish. Was told to make again. I ran out of Pace sauce to put on bottom of the pan so I used the pasta sauce.

    A new family tradition in my house.

    I usually lie to my daughter about what I'm cooking because she is super picky. Well after putting this on her plate and hearing her say "wow mom this is good, what is it?" I knew we had a winner!

    Very tasty...loved by all

    I used gr. turkey instead of beef, mixed with 1/2 pack of taco seasoning, the flour tortillas, mixed the first layer of cheese with 1/2 c. sour cream and 1 small egg, Next time will try with corn tortillas. I cooked at 350...wanted egg to be well cooked. Great family meal!

    Adding to my personal menu;-)

    DELISH!!! I used corn tortillas instead of flour & loved the taste. My family requested that I add this to my personal menu. I usually cook to have left overs for the next night & lunch for hubbie:-) Since EVERYONE got 2nds, it didn't leave as much left overs as I'd like, I'll probably double the recipe next time to make sure there is plenty of left overs! Very filling meal as well!
