1 lb. ground beef

1 cup chopped onion

1 oz. taco seasoning (about 2 tbsp.)

16 oz. refried beans (approximately 2 cups)

10.5 oz. condensed cream of chicken soup

¾ cup sour cream

10 large flour tortillas, halved

2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese

1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

¼ cup chopped cilantro

1 lime


Start by cooking the ground beef and chopped onion until the beef is fully cooked and the onion becomes tender. Make sure to drain any grease.

Next, combine the refried beans and taco seasoning with the cooked beef mixture. Give it a squeeze of lime juice. Add some chopped cilantro. Set this mixture aside for now.

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a baking dish measuring 13×9 inches.

In a bowl blend together condensed cream of chicken soup and sour cream until well combined.

Spread a layer of this creamy mixture on the bottom of the greased baking dish.

Arrange halved tortillas over the layer to cover the bottom completely and spread half of the beef mixture on top.

Sprinkle one cup each of cheddar cheese and pepper jack cheese, over the beef layer.

Repeat these layers starting with another coating of creamy mixture followed by tortillas, remaining beef mixture and finally another generous sprinkling of both cheeses.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Until heated through. Adjust cooking time accordingly if using refrigerated casseroles.

Allow it to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving so that all flavors can meld together perfectly. Indulge, in this mouthwatering delight!
