½ cup chopped onion

1. Melt the cheese in the evaporated milk.

2. Fry ground beef until browned and drain. Add salt and garlic.

3. Place ingredients in a greased 2-quart casserole dish, starting with tortillas. Add ground beef, chiles and onion; repeat.

4. Pour cheese mixture over entire dish and cover.

5. Bake in a 350° F. over for 25 to 30 minutes.
