Chuck Wagon Tortilla Stack

 Chuck Wagon Tortilla Stack
I made this concoction of ground beef, veggies and spices. Then I layer the meat mixture with tortillas in a deep skillet and let it simmer a little longer. It's easy to cut and spoon out of the pan. What's most satisfying, though, is everyone's reaction.—Bernice V. Janowski, Stevens Point, Wisconsin
