I have a family favorite to share with you today. My family loves Mexican food, and this is an easy weeknight dinner. The leftovers the next day are even better, and my family usually doesn’t like leftovers.
- 2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced (1 teaspoon)
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- ¼ teaspoon oregano
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 can (15 ounce) pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained ( I used pinto this time)
- 1 can (15 ounce) corn, drained
- 1 can (4 ounce) chopped green chilies
- 1 can (14.5 ounce) fire roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 can (19 ounce) enchilada sauce
- 16 corn tortillas
- 4 cups (16 ounces) Mexican Blend Cheese
- In a large skillet, cook the ground beef or turkey, onion and garlic over medium heat until browned. Drain any grease. Add the chili powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Let cook for a few minutes over medium heat.
- Stir in the beans, corn, green chilies, tomatoes and enchilada sauce.
- Let simmer for about 10 minutes.
- In a greased 9 x 13 inch dish, tear 8 tortillas into small pieces and place in the bottom of the dish.
- Put ½ of the meat mixture over the top and then ½ of the cheese.
- Repeat with the remaining tortillas, meat mixture and cheese.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes until bubbly.
- Let sit about 5 minutes before cutting.
