ENCHILADA BAKE
Crust:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon Seasoning for Tacos
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

Beat or whisk the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add the seasoning; mix well. Stir in the cheese; mix well. Grease a 9 x 13" baking dish; spread the cheese mixture evenly over the bottom. Bake at 350, 35 minutes or until browned, but not too dark. Let stand 5-10 minutes before adding the topping.

Topping:
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon Seasoning for Tacos
8 1/2 ounce jar enchilada sauce
4 ounce can chopped green chiles
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

Brown the hamburger; drain fat. Stir in the seasoning, enchilada sauce and chiles. Spread over the crust. Top with the cheese. Bake another 20 minutes or so until hot and bubbly. Serve with the toppings of your choice (add additional carbs).

UPDATE: I've updated the crust to be more like the Deep Dish Pizza crust by removing the cream and one of the eggs.

UPDATE 8/12/11: I've decided to mark this suitable for induction since none of the ingredients are technically not allowed. Just be careful to use enchilada sauce that doesn't contain sugar or starch.
