Ridiculously good! Make as spicy as you wish depending on how hot the salsa you choose is!
This dish saves great in the fridge! I never eat left overs, especially meat but this was awesome as lunch!
Cheesy Enchilada Casserole
Original recipe from thegingeredwhisk.blogspot.com
1 pound lean ground beef or ground turkey (I used turkey. It's healthier.)
1 large onion, chopped
2 1/2 cups salsa
1 can (15 ounces) black beans or red kidney beans
1/4 cup reduced fat Italian salad dressing
2 Tbsp reduced sodium taco seasoning
1/4 tsp ground cumin
6 flour tortillas, 8"
1.5 cups frozen corn
1/2 cup sour cream
4 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese
1 medium tomato, chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
1.5 cups shredded lettuce
Doritos Chips (or tortilla chips would work, too)
In a large skillet, cook the beef (or turkey) and the onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink.
Stir in the salsa, beans, corn, dressing, sour cream, taco seasoning and cumin.
Spoon a generous amount of the meat mixture into a 2-quart baking dish.
Sprinkle with grated cheese.
Arrange enough flour tortillas on top of the meat mixture to cover the meat.
Continue layering meat, cheese and tortilla.
The last layer should be a generous coating of cheese
Cover with foil that has been sprayed with pan and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, or until bubbly.
Let stand for five minutes - it needs to set!
Top with lettuce, tomato, cilantro, and crumbled Doritos. (We also added more sour cream, guacamole and a bit more cheese.)
