Directions

  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.

So good on a cold night!! Fast to prepare, only bakes for 15 min. Used a combo of jalapeño monterey jack and cheddar, added just a touch of salt, used all the red pepper flakes and my 7 year old really liked it. Had to make the lime juice and cilantro tomatoes out of a pint my own- seemed to work!!

We LOVE this recipe!! When my kiddos are eating with us we skip the red pepper flakes but they are still yummy too! I make three layers and add half a cup if cheese to the top! You'll love it!
