  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef and onion in the hot skillet until beef is completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  3. Stir tomato sauce, black beans, diced tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro, corn, and chopped green chiles into the ground beef mixture; season with chili powder, cumin, garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to low and cook mixture at a simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Spread about 1/2 cup beef mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish; top with 3 tortillas, overlapping as needed. Spread another 1/2 cup beef mixture over the tortillas. Sprinkle 1 cup Cheddar cheese over beef. Finish with layers of remaining tortillas, beef mixture, and Cheddar cheese, respectively.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until heated throughout and the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

This was so easy to make and such a tasty dish. I had my doubts about it, but thought I would try it based on the reviews. I omitted the corn because my husband isn't crazy about it, but it wa...

Maybe pull back on the red pepper but outside of that it was great and easy to make

this was delicious!! next time i might try corn tortillas instead of flour, the flour ones got kind of mushy.

Traded the black beans for a can of chili ready beans ( don't drain) and it was awesome! Brought it to a potluck...everyone loved it!
