Mexican Tortilla Casserole is a delicious and easy-to-make dish that combines layers of tortillas, seasoned ground beef, black beans, corn, and cheese. Here’s a simple recipe to follow:
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
- 1 package taco seasoning mix
- 6 large flour tortillas
- 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
- Sour cream, sliced avocado, and chopped fresh cilantro for topping (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until browned, stirring occasionally. Drain off any excess fat.
- Add the black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, and taco seasoning to the skillet with the beef. Stir to combine and let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes, until heated through.
- Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Place two tortillas in the bottom of the dish, overlapping slightly to cover the entire bottom.
- Spoon 1/3 of the beef mixture over the tortillas, spreading it out evenly.
- Sprinkle 1/3 of the shredded cheese over the beef mixture.
- Repeat with two more tortillas, 1/3 of the beef mixture, and 1/3 of the cheese.
- Top with the remaining two tortillas, the remaining beef mixture, and the remaining cheese.
- Cover the dish with foil and bake for 25 minutes.
- Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Let the casserole cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
- Top with sour cream, sliced avocado, and chopped fresh cilantro, if desired.
