      1/2 cup diced onion
      1 pack taco seasoning mix
      2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
      1 can refried beans (they spread easier if you warm them in microwave)
      1 cup prepared rice (I used Minute Rice)
      1 can Mexican blend corn (DRAINED)will only use about 1/2 can
      4-5 large flour tortillas
      8 oz of thick chunky salsa (your choice mild or hot)

      Spray a spring form (cheesecake pan) with cooking spray.

      In a skillet Brown ground beef and onion and drain any excess grease.

      Add taco seasonings and cook according to package directions.

      Lay 1 tortilla in bottom of baking dish and spread 1/3 of the refried beans on it ,top with 1/3 of the meat and sprinkle on some cheese .

      2nd layer tortilla, 1/2 the rice, 1/2 salsa, 1/2 the corn and cheese

      3rd layer tortilla, 1/3 beans ,1/3meat, cheese

      It’s yummy! I’ve been doing the same, with variations, for years. Having a large family, I used a 9 x 13 casserole pan, and just cut tortillas to fit the rectangular shape.
