The Enchiladas of Loveliness that Jill Makes but Pam Found

As the title may suggest, Pam found this recipe, and I adapted it to make it into a quick and easy cassarole.

3/4 lb lean ground beef
2 cans refried black beans
12 corn tortillas
about 1 cup salsa
about 1 cup enchilada sauce (we make our own using a mix from Watkins and tomato sauce)
up to 2 cups of cheese (obviously, if you want to cut down on calories, use less cheese)

Brown the ground beef in a skillet, drain off any excess grease. Add about 1/2 cup salsa and the beans. Stir until well mixed and the beans lose their can shape.
Grease (or line with baking paper) a 9x12 pan. Layer 6 of the tortillas on the bottom. Add the beef/bean mixture. layer the rest of the tortillas. Generously cover the top with enchilada sauce and a little more salsa. Make sure it's all sealed and soaked in the sauce. Top with cheese and broil for 5 minutes until the cheese has melted. Let sit another 5 minutes.
Serve with your favorite toppings (we use chopped tomatoes, onions, black olives, avocado, shredded lettuce, jalepenos, sour cream, and salsa).

Serves 8.
