In this step, I’ve layered: four tortillas, having cut them to fit the bottom of the dish, cooked ground beef, shredded cheese, and tomato mixture in a 9.13-inch casserole.

Sixth step:

And I repeated the layers until three layers were formed, ending with the cheese sauce on top.

Seventh step:

Next, I added the remaining cup of cheese on top of the layers, and placed the covered dish in a 400-degree oven for about 20 minutes.

Eighth step:

Once done, I removed the dish from the oven and let it cool. To serve, I garnished each dish with sour cream and chopped green onions.
