  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 15 ounce can mild red enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand)
  • 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix (or a store-bought blend)
  • 16 ounce can pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 ounce can diced green chiles, drained
  • 2 cups shredded cheese, divided (I used sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack)

Optional Toppings:

  • 2.25 ounce can sliced olives, drained
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir until crumbled and no pink remains. Drain the grease from the pan and return to low heat. Add enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, taco seasoning, beans, and green chiles. Stir to combine. Stir in 1 cup of the shredded cheese and remove pan from the heat.
  • Pour mixture into a baking dish and top with remaining cheese. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and allow it to cool for about 5 minutes. Add toppings of choice - olives, chopped green onion, diced tomato, chopped cilantro. Drizzle with sour cream. Serve with tortilla chips or corn chips.


Make-Ahead Instructions: Follow as directed but after transferring the mixture to the baking dish, cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When ready to bake, remove from refrigerator and allow to sit out for 15 to 20 minutes and then top with cheese and bake as directed. Cooking time will be longer if cold when going in the oven.
