2 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
1 can (2 oz) sliced black olives
1 can (4-oz) diced green chilies
1 can  (10-oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 jar (16-oz) taco sauce
2 cans (16-oz each) refried beans
12 (8-oz) flour tortillas
9-oz shredded Mexican-blend or Colby cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet brown the ground beef with the onion and garlic until beef is no longer pink; drain any excess fat from the meat.

Add the olives, green chilies, tomatoes, taco sauce and beans to the meat stirring to blend. Reduce the heat to low and simmer 15 to 20 minutes.

In the bottom of a 4-quart casserole dish spread a thin layer of the meat mixture. Top with a tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Repeat the process until all the tortillas are used, ending with a layer of meat and sprinkled cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until the cheese is browned and casserole is bubbly.

Serve with additional olives, diced tomatoes, sour cream, or other desired toppings.
