- Salt, to taste.
- Heavy whipping cream, I used two full cups.
- 2 large spoons. Of soft butter.
- 3 divided Cups.Of shredded Mexican-style cheese.
- A small spoon and half of Cajun seasoning.
FOR GARNISH, I ONLY USED TWO INGREDIENTS, BUT YOU CAN BE CREATIVE AND ADD MORE FOR A COLORFUL DISH:
- Sour cream.
- Diced green onions.
AND THIS IS HOW TO MAKE IT FROM SCRATCH, ALL YOU NEED IS TO FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW AS DIRECTED:
I started the preparation by combining the red onions, with green diced onions, jalapeño pepper, tomatoes in a medium mixing bowl and I seasoned using salt. I set the bowl aside for later.
Next, I browned the ground beef in a large pan and drained well the excess fat, then I sprinkled the taco seasoning over the meat and mixed well.
After that, I brought the heavy cream with softened butter to a boil in a medium saucepan, whisking constantly until thickened.
I took the pan off the heat and added 2 cups of shredded cheese, seasoned with Cajun spice, and kept it warm.
At this step, I layered: four tortillas, after I cut them to fit the bottom of the dish, the cooked ground beef, shredded cheese, and tomato mixture in a 9.13-inches casserole.
And I repeated the layers until three layers are formed, concluding with the cheese sauce on the top.
Following that, I added the remaining cup of cheese on the top of the layers, and I placed the dish covered in a 400 degrees oven for around 20 minutes.
Once done, I removed the dish from the oven and let it cool, for serving, I garnished each plate with sour cream and green chopped onions.
