Easy Cheesy Mexican Casserole

Last night for dinner we had hamburger meat set out, but weren't sure what to do with it so we pulled out some cookbooks and searched for something tasty. I found a recipe and decided to tweak it a little bit and this is what I came up with. Here's what you need

1 lb hamburger meat, cooked and drained
14 corn tortillas, cut into quarters
10oz can Rotel
16oz can refried beans
10 3/4oz can cream of chicken soup
10 3/4oz can cream of mushroom soup
1 small onion, finely diced
1/2 lb shredded cheese, you can use less if you like

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish. In a large bowl mix soups, onion and Rotel. Once hamburger meat is cooked and drained mix with refried beans. Place half the meat/bean mixture in the bottom of the pan, spreading out evenly. Then place half the quartered tortillas on top, making sure to cover entire pan. Pour half of soup mixture into pan and spread evenly, top with half the shredded cheese. Repeat layers ending with cheese. Bake, uncovered for 30-45 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like the onions to be. Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream and salsa.
