In a medium bowl, combine the salsa and green chiles. In a second medium bowl, combine the sour cream, refried beans and taco seasoning.

In the bottom of a 9x13 inch casserole dish, spoon one quarter of the salsa mixture creating the bottom layer. Rip one tortilla into strips and place them on top of the salsa. Spoon one third of the bean mixture on top of the salsa. Top with 1 cup of shredded cheese.

Repeat the layers as follows two times: 1 tortilla, one quarter salsa mixture, one third bean mixture and one cup cheese. Then rip the last tortilla into strips, placing it on top of the cheese and cover that with the remaining salsa mixture
