Half a onion
2 small cans enchilada sauce, i use 1 hot 1 med
1 can refried beans
4 cups cheese, either cheddar, fiesta blend or monetary jack cheese
8 tortilla

Preheat oven to 350*. Brown hamburger in a large skillet over med high heat, until browned, drain if needed. Add in onion, 1 1/2 can sauce and about a spoonful of beans, heat through. In a 13x9 pan spray with cooking spray, layer half the tortilla's, rest of beans, half the sauce mixture and half the cheese. Repeat layers, minus the beans. Top with the remaining enchilada sauce in the can, on top of the cheese. Bake until the starts to get golden brown along the edges, about 30 mins. Let it cool for a5-7 mins before serving. Can be topped with sour cream, onion, green onion, salsa or any other garnish you prefer. The recipe can be halved.
