Enchilada Stacks

Enchilada Stacks from http://amoderngal.com/2009/08/17/enchilada-stacks/
makes 4 small (or 2-3 larger) servings

4 corn tortillas (preferably thicker handmade style)
1/2 pound ground turkey or ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup enchilada sauce or chunky salsa
1 can refried beans (or substitute homemade)
1/4 cup shredded cheese

Brown the turkey, onion and garlic in a saute pan. Drain excess fat if necessary. Add the enchilada sauce (I used bottled salsa) and stir to heat through. Spread 2-3 T refried beans on each tortilla. Place one tortilla bean side up in the bottom of a pyrex or corning ware dish with high sides. Spoon 1/4 of the turkey mixture evenly over the beans, spread out to the edges. Repeat with all 4 tortillas stacking the tortilla spread with beans topped by the turkey and sauce mixture. Sprinkle the top of the stack with cheese. To heat through, either bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 25 minutes or microwave for about 4-6 minutes on high. The respective ingredients are cooked, so this just needs to be heated through. To serve,cut into quarters.

Review: Quick and easy but a little bland!
