  • 1 Pound Ground Beef
  • 1 Package Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Cup Yellow Onion , chopped
  • 1 Cup Cremini Mushrooms , diced
  • 2 Cups Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 15 ounce Can Pinto Beans , drained but not rinsed
  • 3 Cups Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup Cotija Cheese , crumbled
  • 5-6 Flour Tortillas
  • Cilantro , minced for garnish
  • Mexican Crema (Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt may also be used)


  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat an 8-10 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. See note below.
  • Add the ground beef and taco seasoning and stir throughout cooking to combine, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Next, add in the onions and mushrooms, and continue stirring every 2-3 minutes for 5-6 more minutes.
  • Once everything is soft, add in the enchilada sauce and beans. Bring the mixture to a simmer and continue to stir every few minutes.
  • Add in 2/3 of each cheese and stir to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into a bowl and remove the skillet from the burner.
  • Add a large spoonful of the mixture to the bottom of the skillet, and spread it around so the tortillas don't burn.
  • Place one tortilla into the skillet and cover with a spoonful of the sauce mixture.
  • Add another tortilla and repeat the layering until you've used all of the ingredients, top with all of the remaining cheddar and cotija cheese.
  • Bake the casserole for 25-30 minutes and remove from the oven.
  • Sprinkle with cilantro and add a dollop of sour cream if desired.


  • Depending on the size of your tortillas you may need to change the size of your skillet.
