I actually made this during the summer (I am so behind on posting!), and we all really liked it, even Andrew. It’s very highly-rated on Food.com, so I think I expected it to be transcendent, and while it wasn’t quite that, it was very good and something I’ll certainly make again. The original recipe calls for the tortillas to be broken up, but I found that unnecessary. I just layered them like lasagna and it worked out perfectly. There were only two and a half of us eating this, so we had lots of leftovers, but that was fine with me since I usually take leftovers for lunch. You could definitely divide the meat mixture in half and make another casserole for freezing, though.
This is a solid recipe, and something I think would please a crowd. It definitely pleased us!

1 small onion, chopped
1 package taco seasoning
6 medium flour tortillas

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Brown ground beef and onion over medium-high heat; drain.
