This recipe is one of the best "go-to" dinners in my file. it is from the All You; Eat Well, Save Big" cookbook. http://www.allyou.com/coupons-deals/all-you-cookbook-00400000062239/ a sweet friend gave me.

Tortilla Stack
"All You; Eat Well, Save Big"
Prep: 20 minutes
Bake 12 minutes
Serves 4

4 10-inch flour tortillas
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pound extra-lean ground beef
½ cup tomato sauce
1 cup green salsa
6 ounce grated pepper Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 450˚F. Place a skillet on the stovetop over high heat. Mist tortillas with cooking spray and toast in skillet, turning once, until golden, about 1 minute.

Warm oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 4 minutes. Stir in garlic, spices and salt; sauté for 1 minute. Add beef and sauté, breaking into small pieces, until cooked, about 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce, reduce heat and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 7 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Place a tortilla on a baking sheet misted with cooking spray. Spread with one-third each of beef mixture, salsa and cheese. Repeat with 2 more layers of beef, salsa and cheese. Top with remaining tortilla; press to adhere. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
