Dinner tonight from just get off your butt and bake! Cheesy Enchilada Casserole
Ingredients
1 pound lean ground beef ( lean)
1 large onion, chopped or season with Onion powder or minced onion
2½ cups salsa
1 can (15 ounces) black beans or red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
¼ cup reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium taco seasoning
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
6 flour or corn tortillas (8 inches)
1 small can of drained corn, or about 1¼ cups of frozen corn (optional)
¾ cup sour cream *Note: I used ½ cup
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend or your favorite cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, chopped
¼ cup minced fresh cilantro
Instructions
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Stir in the salsa, beans, corn, dressing, sour cream, taco seasoning and cumin.
Spoon a generous layer of meat mixture on bottom of 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with grated cheese.
Place a flour or corn tortilla on top of meat mixture. Layer with half of the meat mixture, and cheese.
Repeat as many layers as you like.
The last & final layer should be a healthy dose of grated cheese.
Cover with foil that has been sprayed with pam or other and bake at 400° for 25 minutes, or until hot & bubbly.
Let stand for 5 minutes before topping with lettuce, tomato and cilantro. Yield: 8 servings.
Notes
*Note: I added ¼ cup of fresh chopped cilantro to the meat mixture instead. I also cut the flour tortillas to fit my pan, since they were the very large size. (That’s why they are square) I fried the cut-off edges and sprinkled them with cinnamon & sugar!
