  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the ground beef with the onion in the hot skillet until completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes; drain any excess fat. Stir the black beans, chili powder, cumin, and salt to the beef mixture; cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Arrange the tortillas atop the beef mixture.
  3. Mix the tomatoes with green chile peppers and cream of mushroom soup together in a bowl; spread over the tortillas. Top with the Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and the cheese is melted completely, 25 to 30 minutes.

I loved this recipe, I left out the beans. I used two cups of fat free cheese. Also I shredded up the tortillas. Next time I will only use 1 1/2 LB Hamb, use Mexican blend cheese and add 1/4...

Cook the chili powder, cumin & salt with the ground beef to season the meat. Cut the tortillas into triangles and layer this casserole more like you would a lasagna. If you use flour tortillas...

Made this for dinner tonight, and it is delicious! The only thing I changed was that I added a can of whole kernel corn (drained) to the meat mixture. I'll definitely make this again!

I made this for dinner tonight and both my husband and son had seconds. It is absolutely phenomenal! The only changes that I made (out of necessity) was to use six tortillas instead of four be...

I thought this was pretty good and very easy. The only thing I did differently was that I used White American instead of Cheddar because it was all I had. Next time, I think I will use a little ...
