Leftover Taco Meat (or beans) Mexican Pie

Ever have leftover taco meat or beans that you would like to use up? I modified this recipe from Mommy Hates Cooking via Mommy's Kitchen to do just that. I usually have about 1/2 pound of meat leftover so I modified the original recipe to accommodate that. If you have a full pound or would like to start from scratch, just double the other ingredients. Both can be made in a 9-inch casserole dish -they will just be in different thicknesses.
from Mommy Hates Cooking

1/2 - lb leftover taco meat (ground beef, seasoned with taco seasoning) or 1/2 can of refried beans
1/2 can - 15 - oz can corn, drained
4 oz tomato sauce
1-2 cups Shredded Mexican Style 4 Cheese Blend
@2 Flour Tortillas
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 inch casserole dish with non stick cooking spray then poor the seasoned beef on the bottom. Next, top the beef with the canned corn, and pour the tomato sauce over the corn, evenly spreading it out.
Using the flour tortillas, cut them into long, narrow slices and place them lengthwise across the top of the dish, then repeat the same going in the opposite direction. The final result should look like a grid. Lastly, top the tortillas with shredded cheese and bake in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted.
