How to Make Cheesy Beef Enchilada Pie


  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.
  3. Mix red enchilada sauce, green chiles, roasted red peppers, New Mexico chile powder and cooked ground beef.
  4. 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.
  5. 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)
