This is sort of a mix of a taco and a burrito all in one dish!
Kids love it, parents love it, I mean really who doesn't love all things cheesy, beefy, Mexican!
I'm the girl that swears she'll only have a few chips when I go to a Mexican restaurant but then end up asking for more.
This will become family favorite.
I like to bake the tortillas crisp before assembling this, it gives them a more pronounced corn flavor as well as holding up better to all those yummy ingredients.
The bottom layer is the "burrito" layer with beans, green chilis, Monterey jack and a green enchilada sauce. The next layer is the "taco" taco layer with saucy ground beef, tomatoes and cotija cheese. Then you top off the whole thing with another layer of crispy tortillas and lots of grated cheddar cheese. How can that be anything but delicious.
Top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, salsa, more crumbled chips....it's endless!
