Evenly spread 1/2 cooked meat and generous portions of Mexican style cheese and cheddar cheese, cover with 2 tortilla shells. On top of tortilla shells, spread thick layer of refried beans topped with entire contents on sour cream. Cover with 2 tortilla shells.

Helpful Tips:

This dish is also good when reheated and topped with salsa. For ease in serving, lightly grease or butter serving dish. Middle layer can also be used for miscellaneous condiments such as jalapenos peppers, olives, tomatoes etc. I've been making this for years, unsure about exact measurements on some ingredients, individual taste and preference will work. Draining the meat will cause dish to be dry.
