- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 (11.5-ounce) can condensed tomato soup
- 2 (10-ounce) cans mild or hot enchilada sauce
- 1 cup water
- 9 (8-inch) flour or corn tortillas

Cooking In A Dutch Oven
Heat a 12-inch Dutch oven over 9 hot coals. Brown meat and onion. Pour off drippings. Add soup, enchilada sauce and water and simmer 5 minutes. Spoon 2.3 of this mixture into a medium bowl, leaving remaining 1.3 in the Dutch oven.
Arrange 2 to 3 tortillas over the meat mixture and sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese. Layer with half of the remaining meat mixture and 1/3 of the cheese; repeat. Cover with Dutch oven lid and place 12 to 15 hot coals on top. Cook, covered, 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese melts and tortillas soften. Serves 6 to 8.
Cooking At Home

In a 9 x 13-inch dish, layer 1/3 of the meat mixture, then 2 or 3 tortillas, and 1/3 of the cheese; repeat with remaining ingredients. Cook, covered, 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese melts and tortillas soften. Serves 6 to 8.
