1 cup sour cream
24 oz chunky salsa
8 oz shredded cheese(Cheddar, Mexican style, Pepper Jack, Monterrey Jack or any combo!)

*if you want to do vegetarian, heat the beans with some shredded veggies(carrots, zucchini and sweet pepper would be good) and then add the taco seasoning/water
Cook ground beef until all the pink is gone(drain if necessary) Add seasoning and water, stir well and simmer a few minutes more. Set aside
Preheat oven to 350º
Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish, arrange 4 tortillas over the bottom.
Spread over 1/2 the meat ,1/2 the beans, 1/2 the sour cream, 1/3 the salsa, 1/3 the cheese, 1/3 the onions.

Add the remaining tortillas, then top with remaining salsa, cheese and green onions.
Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, uncover and bake 15 minutes more.
