Stir in the enchilada sauce and let gently simmer while preparing the tortillas. Spread the large tortillas with the can of refried beans and roll up. When tortillas are prepared then add some of the sauce meat mixture to bottom of sprayed casserole dish. Place the tortillas with beans ontop of the thin layer of sauce.
