1 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 package taco seasoning

Directions:
Directions:
Cook ground beef and onion in skillet until done -- drain off all excess grease. Mix in 1 package taco seasoning and make according to package instructions (as you would for tacos). Place a thin layer of enchilada sauce in bottom of 9x13 pan. Place flour tortillas in pan, cutting to cover entire bottom of pan. Spread 1/3 of meat mixture on top, sprinkle with 1/3 of cheese, continue layering with tortillas, meat and cheese (add diced chili peppers if desired). Top final layer with tortillas and then pour enchalada sauce over top, being certain to cover all surface of flour tortillas (you may need to add a little water to stretch sauce). Top with little more grated cheese and bake in 350 oven for about 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbling. Let set about 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with sour cream and guacamole if desired.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Be aware that when you are buying canned enchilada sauce the cans are labled "mild" "medium" or "hot". I use the mild since I cannot eat very spicy foods. Also, most kids like the mild. The amount of cheese you use is up to you. I personally like a lot of cheese, so adjust the recipe accordingly.
