Robin's notes for this recipe:
This Enchilada pie is a family favorite that was modified from a recipe given to my mother from a coworker over forty years ago. It is actually laid out much like lasagna so it's a lot less work that traditional enchiladas.

This is a delightfully filling dish.  The blend of meat and spices make for an authentic Mexican flavor that's sure to put a smile on your face!


Brown the ground beef and ground pork with diced onion, season with the spices, drain off any fat and set aside.

Fry the corn tortillas whole and flat until crispy, drain on paper.

Grate the two cheeses and set aside about 1/4 for the top. Combine the sour cream and cottage cheese to the large amount of cheddar and jack cheeses in a bowl.

Line the bottom of a deep baking dish with a small amount of Enchilada sauce and add a layer of fried tortilla.

Add a layer of the meat mixture.

Add another layer of tortillas and sauce.

Add a layer of the cheese mixture.

One more layer of tortillas, sauce, remaining cheese, green onions, cilantro and tomatoes for garnish.

Bake @ 350 degrees for about 30 minutes and serve
