A Winning Dinner in my House!

Finally... a dinner EVERYONE loved.  This does not happen often with 5 of us in the house.  But, tonight I tried a recipe and switched it up a bit and it was a hit!!  The best thing is it is so easy and healthy.

It is an enchilada casserole of sorts.

corn or whole wheat flour tortillas  1 package.
1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 onion, green pepper, jalapeno if you like spicy
1 can or package frozen corn kernels.
1 C salsa
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 can refried beans (I used Traders organic)  You can also use black beans
Cheddar cheese.

Here is what I did.

I used corn and whole wheat tortillas... only because I ran out of corn... it works with both or either.

Spray the bottom of a glass or metal pan with spray.  Line the bottom with tortillas.

Cook ground meat with the onion green pepper and spices.  Mix in 1/2 C salsa to the mixture and add corn.

Layer the meat mixture, refried beans, and cheese like a lasagna.  Repeat until you have a tortilla layer on the top.

Top with remaining salsa and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Bake covered for 25 minutes at 375.  Remove cover and bake an additional 5 minutes until bubbly.
Hot out of the oven.  YUM.

Serve with a side salad or some brown rice!

This was so easy and good.  You must try it!  I am going to be making this much more often since the response was great.
