1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook ground beef and drain well. Fry 18( or enough for 3 layers in a 9x13) corn tortillas until lightly brown ( about 30 seconds each side)
2
Pulse up green chiles if using whole ones, can pulse your roasted red peppers at the same time.

Place a layer of the tortillas in bottom in bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Spread half the beef mixture over them and then add half the cheese over it. ( I just shredded mine in the same bowl and mixed it up.) Add another layer of tortillas then the meat mixture then cheese, end with a layer of tortillas.

pour the queso blanco over the top cover loosely with foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven. ( I turned my broiler on for a couple of minutes and browned the cheese)
