This is an old recipe from a friend's Mom from High school. it is so easy to make and it's been a hit every time I've made it. The tortillas are placed in the casserole dish whole, not torn in pieces. I have also added canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed layered between the meat and cheese. I think I like it that way best.

1 medium onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp salt
