    This is a recipe from my mom from way back but it is so good. You have to try it at least once..

    Ingredients.
    One package corn tortillas
    One stick of butter
    One lb hambuger meat
    One package cheddar cheese - already cut
    One can Chopped black olives
    One can Enchilada Red Sauce
    One onion...chopped

    Brown the hamburger meat and when it is done, add the onions and black olives and stir together. Set aside in a bowl.

    Put the stick of butter in a skillet and heat, then cook each enchilada in it and place on papertowels. This softens the tortilla, just put it inthe butter, turn it over and take it out.

    You need a round cooking bowl at least as round as the tortilla.

    Preheat overn to 375.

    Pour enchilada sauce into a bowl.

    Here we go to put it together..

    Dip a tortilla in the sauce, lay it on the bottom of the round bowl, add a layer of meat/onions/and olives.
    Sprinkle a layer of cheese

    Dip another tortilla in sauce and place on this layer

    Add more met mixture. Continue layering until it is all gone and then top with a tortilla dipped in the sauce.

    I sprinkle cheese on the top if there's any left.

    Then put a foil over the top, put in oven and bake for 30 minutes. It is enough time to melt if all together.

    When it comes out and ready to serve, you cut it like a pie wedge and when you lay it on a plate, it lays over and you can see all the layers.

    Of course, there is always the exception, but I haven't fixed this for anyone who did not want the recipe to have more.

    No sense buying a round baking bowl, you can use one of the cake pans and just layer the tortilas spread out in each layer. WOrks the same just won't lay over like a pie. LOL
    Enjoy....

    I make this debbie! A mexican friend some thirty years ago told me that they are called Chilaquilas and taught me to make them. (I am not sure about the spelling, just sounding it out here) But, she taught me to make it on top of the stove. You just tear the tortillas up into bite sized pieces and fry off, set aside and in anothe pan cook the other ingredients like you say to. Drain the grease off, combine with the first pan of torrillas put the jack cheese on and the top and you are done!

    I then serve spanish rice, refried beans, a great salad and lemonaide. What a great meal.

    Ooooooh sounds good Sandy. Hey, now I have a name for it. My mom always called it stacking enchiladas. Can you imagine my little japanese mom making this. ROFL. Chilaqueas. COol. I am working on the July quilt show trip. Using the car idea to entice my DH.

    Joanieu - I think Skip would like this too. Let me know how it turns out.

    Gramalehr. Try it soon. This is the first recipe I put here. If people like my "style" of food I may post another.
    Most of mine are passed down so I don't have them in a recipe format. teehee.

    Takes about 10 minutes to prepare so it is fast and easy and sooooooo scumptious.

    LOL! I guess you could say that. I Love lemonaide in the summer and raspberry sweet tea. I guess that is from being raised in the south.

    I make a mean fried chicken dinner too. Finish this with a pineapple upside down cake and I am in heaven.

    Yep - dieting sucks!

    I do this with shredded rotissiere chicken tossed with a bit of the sauce instead of the hamburger BUT I SKIP THE BUTTER CALORIES - sorry to shout it out LOL

    If you just dip the tortillas in the sauce it works fine.

    I am thinking the next time I make it to add a picture to the post. The chicken sounds good too and also using flour tortillas but I have to pre-cook the soft taco shells as it makes them softer. Easier to cut. I have to tryt he chicken now myself. YOu can also change it up by using the green enchilada sauce but I prefer the red.
