- 1 pound ground beef (or substitute with ground chicken or turkey)
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 bell pepper, diced
- 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can (15 ounces) corn kernels, drained
- 1 can (15 ounces) enchilada sauce
- 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 6-8 small corn tortillas
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- Optional toppings: diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, chopped cilantro, sour cream
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
- In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.
- Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and diced bell pepper to the skillet. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables are softened.
- Stir in the black beans, corn kernels, enchilada sauce, diced green chilies, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Simmer the mixture for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to blend.
- Arrange a layer of corn tortillas on the bottom of the greased baking dish, tearing them if necessary to fit.
- Spread half of the beef and vegetable mixture over the tortillas, followed by half of the shredded cheddar cheese.
- Repeat the layers with another layer of tortillas, the remaining beef and vegetable mixture, and the remaining cheese.
- Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
- Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Serve with optional toppings if desired.
