Mexican Lasagne/Burrito Pie

2 pounds ground turkey or beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 (16 ounce) cans refried beans
1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies
1 (10 ounce) can Rotel tomatoes
(tomatoes w/green chilies) Reg. or mild*
2 cups salsa-mild or hotter, depends on your preference
1 (2 ounce) can black olives, sliced*
6-10 flour tortillas
2-3 cups shredded cheddar or colby/jack cheese
Garlic Salt*

Brown ground meat. Sprinkle with garlic salt and a bit of onion powder if desired. Add onions and garlic. Stir-fry until onion is soft. If using beef, drain off any oil. Add refried beans, green chilies, tomatoes, salsa & olives. Mix thoroughly and heat through.

In a large casserole dish or 13 x 9 pan, spread a thin layer of the meat mixture. Top with a tortilla layer and sprinkle with cheese. Continue layering with tortilla/meat/cheese.

Bake 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serves 12-16
(Just for fun, I added a second photo. I don't always make things the same way every time.)
