  • Top with another tortilla and another 1/2 cup beef mixture, spread into an even layer.
  • Top each stack with a tortilla. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven until cheese melts and tortillas are heated through, 5-7 min.
Make salsa
4
  • Meanwhile, add tomatoes, half the lime juice, half the cilantro, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.

If you've opted for double beef, cook it in the same way the recipe instructs you to cook the regular portion of beef.  Work in batches, if necessary.
