I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Beef and Black Bean Tortilla Stack

This dish is deceiving.  Looks like it would only serve one person with one big healthy appetite.  But it serves 4 quite well with a side of veggies or salad.

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups salsa
2  1/2 cups grated cheese, cheddar or mozza or both
2 tbsps. taco seasoning
squirt or 2 of sriracha sauce
6 small tortillas

Brown beef, add chopped onions.  Spoon out any accumulated grease.  Sprinkle taco seasoning and add sriracha. Remove from heat.
Add beans, 1 cup cheese, 1/2 cup salsa to the meat.
Put a ladleful of salsa on bottom of a baking dish.

Start stacking with a tortilla.  Roughly divide the meat mixture in the pan by 5.  Layer 1 portion on top of tortilla. Reserve 1 cup salsa for the end.  With remaining 1/2 cup salsa, spoon a little over each addition of meat.  Divide 1 cup cheese by 5 and add 1 portion to top of meat.

Continue stacking, ending with a tortilla topped with the remaining 1 cup of salsa and about 1/2 cup cheese. 
Ready for the oven.

Bake in a 375F oven for 25-30 minutes.  Broil a couple of minutes to brown if you like.  Let stand 10 minutes.
Is that the bomb or what?

Goes well served with sour cream.
