Ingredients

1 lb
lean ground beef (or turkey)
1 pkg
taco seasoning (or you can create your own blend)
1
medium onion, chopped
1 jar(s)
your favorite salsa
1 can(s)
black beans, rinsed and drained (15 oz.)
3/4 c
frozen corn
1 can(s)
green chilies (4.5 oz)
9
soft corn tortillas
1 c
mexican or pepperjack cheese
1/3 c
cilantro, chopped
olive oil

Step-By-Step

1Pre-heat oven to 375.
2Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add about 1 Tbsp oil. Begin to sauté onions until fragrant and translucent. Add beef and continue to cook until beef is no longer pink.
3Add in taco seasoning and cook according to package instructions. (When using my own seasoning, which I did in this recipe, I always use less water than the packet calls for: ~ ½ cup.) Bring quickly to a boil and then simmer until liquid is almost evaporated.
4At this point, add the black beans, corn and green chilies to the beef mixture. Let simmer for ~ 5 minutes to let flavors meld. Liquid should be evaporated.
5Spray an 8 x 8 casserole dish with cooking spray. Place three tortillas on the bottom of the dish, cutting them to fit any empty space. Layer with half of the beef mixture. Top with half of the salsa and 1/3 of the cilantro.
6Repeat layers. Finish with cheese and the final 1/3 of cilantro.
7Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until sides are bubbly and cheese has melted.
8Garnish with additional cilantro and serve with sour cream or Greek yogurt.
