Tortilla Beef Casserole

Total Time

Prep: 30 min. Bake: 25 min. + standing


8-10 servings

When I first started making this casserole, I wrapped up the tortillas like enchiladas, but this way is much easier and just as good. I've also make it with ground turkey instead of beef.—Janice Wedemeyer, Holland, Michigan


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can (26 ounces) condensed chicken with rice soup, undiluted
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) picante sauce
  • 6 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 2 cups shredded Colby/Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • Sour cream, tomatoes, chopped lettuce, ripe olives, onions and/or additional picante sauce, optional


  1. In a Dutch oven, cook the beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Drain broth from soup, reserving rice mixture (discard broth or refrigerate for another use). Stir rice mixture and picante sauce into beef. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
  2. Place four tortillas on the bottom and up the sides of a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Spread with half of the beef mixture. Combine cheeses; sprinkle half over the beef. Top with remaining tortillas, beef mixture and cheese.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, olives, onions and/or picante sauce if desired.
