I made this recipe for the first time yesterday for friends, and it was a huge hit! Everyone loved it, and there were hardly any leftovers. What I read from quite a few other reviews was that the mixture was too wet, which made the tortillas mushy. So I only used about half of the 16oz jar of taco sauce, and did not mix the refried beans into the meat. I let the meat mixture with everything else cook for about 30 minutes, which helped the mixture to absorb much of the liquid. After spreading a thin layer of the meat mixture in the pan (a 9x13 pan worked great), I dolloped the 1 can of refried beans on top of the meat and cheese before placing the first layer of tortillas in the pan. Then repeated with the second layer. I ended up only using 1 can of refried beans, and it was enough. I also placed the tortillas in a dry saute pan one at a time to dry them out a bit before placing in between the layers of the meat, cheese, and beans. After baking the dish for about 30 minutes, I drizzled the remaining taco sauce on top and added some sliced scallions. Served with fresh guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. Fantastic!
