Preparation:

Step 1

*For Yogurt Cheese: Using a yogurt cheese maker or layered cheese cloth, strain the whey from 4 cups of yogurt for 3-6 hours in the refrigerator. This should yield 2 cups of yogurt cheese.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 3

Brown beef and onion and drain well. Allow to cool.

Step 4

Using a large mixing bowl, fold the vegetables, beef mixture, mozzarella cheese, herbs, salt, pepper and eggs into the yogurt cheese.

Step 5

In a 9x13 inch pan place a couple of tablespoons of sauce on bottom, spreading evenly.

Step 6

Cut the tortillas in half to make them easier to work with, and layer them in the bottom on the pan.

Step 7

Top with half of the vegetable filling, then half of the sauce. Repeat for the second layer. Finish with the remaining tortillas and monterey jack cheese.

Step 8

Bake covered with foil for 1 hour. Remove foil for the last 10 minutes for cheese to brown.
