Fold-Over Tortilla Bake

Here’s something a little different to shake up taco night. But don’t reserve this zippy dish for a weeknight—it’s perfect for potlucks and serving company, too. something a little different from the usual tacos. It's special enough for potlucks or dinner guests. —Deborah Smith, DeWitt, Nebraska

  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 flour or corn tortillas (6 inches)
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Minced fresh cilantro, optional


  • In a large skillet, cook ground beef and onion until beef is no longer pink, breaking it into crumbles; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, enchilada sauce and seasonings. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Pour half the meat sauce into a 13x9-in. baking dish. Set aside.

    Used petite diced tomatoes in place of stewed - the only substitution I made and it was an excellent, easy dish to make. I have a culinary degree and many years of experience as a professional and would like to say to people like Cruelella 747 - please do not post negative reviews of others recipes to try to make yourself look good - it doesn't work.

    My kids won't eat chunks of tomatoes so I used tomato sauce instead which made it super saucy. Next time I would only use one can of tomato sauce. This was very yummy! We all really enjoyed it!

    I have made this several times. That rarely happens. I love trying new recipes but this just tasted really good to me and my husband, and my daughter and my picky 11 year old grandson!

    Very good! Different! The only two things I change were- diced tomatoes instead of stewed(because that’s what I had), I didn’t use cream cheese I used Mexican cheese. My family can be picky about cream cheese. I’m not sure why I read such a nasty negative review down below. According to this person , we are all terrible cooks with low standards. Oh well! We loved it

    I bought all the ingredients about a month ago. Decided to cook it tonight. OMG!! It is delicious! I thought it would be complicated, but it was very easy to make. I used six large flour tortillas. We are a family of two, so this will be another two meals for us. Hopefully, it will freeze well, and I can reheat it for another meal or two, tasting just as good. Definitely will make it again, but smaller tortillas and not as many.

    Used two cans of green chili’s and perhaps less tomatoes but over all great!

    I made this recipe as written ( except I used 8 large corn torillas) and we loved it! My husband said, "You need to make this again!"
