Optional Toppings


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and set aside. 

  2. Heat a large sauté pan to MEDIUM heat. When hot, add beef and chopped onion. Cook together for 10-12 minutes until brown. Drain any excess fat.

  3. Add mushrooms, bell pepper, beans, tomatoes, green chilies and taco seasoning to pan. Simmer for 5 minutes.

  4. Place half of the tortillas on the bottom of the 9×13 pan (ripping them as needed to create a single layer covering the bottom of the pan). Top tortillas with half of beef mixture. Dollop sour cream on beef mixture and spread using the back of a spoon. Place the rest of the tortillas in a single layer over the sour cream (ripping them as needed). Top with remainder of beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 25 minutes.
