1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of celery soup
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10-ounce) can enchilada sauce
9 (6-inch) corn tortillas

How to Make It
Cook sausage and ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain. Stir in beans and next 5 ingredients; cook until thoroughly heated.
Stir together soups and enchilada sauce in a saucepan; cook until thoroughly heated.
Spoon one-third of sauce onto bottom of a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish; top with 3 tortillas. Spoon half of beef mixture and one-third of sauce over tortillas; sprinkle with half of Cheddar cheese. Top with 3 tortillas; repeat layers ending with tortillas. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese and next 3 ingredients.
The about half surprised us with how good it is. My son found and made the dish in triplicate so he could take dinner to relatives and they called and raved also. He did substitute black beans for the pinto and made more sauce than called for. He also left out the cilantro because he hates it and avocado. Even with the modifications I am sure this will join his repertoire and be added to our frequent line up.
So good! I wanted user to use some ground beef I had but was sick of the normal go-to meals. We're not big fans of traditional enchilada sauce so we used green chili sauce, as another reviewer recommended and it was fantastic. I also added sauteed onions to the ground beef. My 6 yo, and 2yo loved it too! This will definitely be added to the rotation.
Outstanding recipe! I used soy crumbles for a vegetarian main dish and subbed a can of plain pinto beans and a can of chopped jalapenos instead of ranch-style. Saved calories and fat with 98% fat free soups and served with CL Green Rice. Delicious!
