  • Tips

    • Alternate Preparation: This recipe can also be heated in the microwave.  Proceed with the recipe above but layer in a microwavable 2-quart casserole.  Microwave at 70% power for 8 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling.
    • Serving Suggestion:  This torte is delicious served with a dollop of sour cream on the side.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 400°F.  Stir the beans and corn in a medium bowl.

  • Step 2

    Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.  Stir in the picante sauce and chili powder.

  • Step 3

    Arrange 2 tortillas in the bottom of a 2-quart casserole.  Top with half the beef mixture, bean mixture, soup and cheese.  Repeat the layers.  Cover the casserole.

  • Step 4

    Bake for 25 minutes or until hot.  Sprinkle with the cilantro.

    Overall a great, easy recipe to make. I loved it and it was good as leftovers the next day too!

    Instead of chili powder I used a taco seasoning pack and put it in with all ingredients so everything was in the one skillet for even coating. I also layered in pinto beans and the tortillas at top and then added the cheese. When it was done I added sour cream and NO HEAT Jalepenos to the top. EVERYONE loved it.

  • Delicious!!!

    My family loved this recipe. I tweaked it some though. I spread refried beans on the tortillas. Instead of chili powder (I didn't have any#, I browned the meat with a packet of taco seasoning, added the cheese soup to the drained beef. I have extreamly picky eaters in my house, so I forgoed the picante and used taco sauce #it worked awesome#. Tonight I am going to make it again and try it with corn tortillas #to make it more like enchaladas) and chicken. Oh! I also baked mine at 350 for about 15 minutes :-)

    We absolutely love this recipe! My kids do too! I usually add one more layer of tortillas across the top with shredded cheddar or mexican fiesta cheese- much better that way not as "meaty" as the original. I do not use the chilli powder, and add the cheddar cheese soup to the meat and salsa in the pan to mix more evenly. Also I cook it in the oven on 350 for 15 minutes instead of the microwave. Fantastic recipe, easy to make, and fast!

    I used less tortillas because i thought it was too much and i think the chili was a bit excessive. Next time i will use less chili.
