Chilaquiles Casserole

Exercising and eating healthier, got me searching for a healthy recipe for Cinco de Mayo. I am so very glad I found this one. So tasty and very easy to make!  For my own touch, I added shredded chicken to this. Perfect, easy, healthy dinner! 


1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 medium onion, diced
    1 medium zucchini, grated
    1 19-ounce can black beans, rinsed
    1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
    1 1/2 cups corn, frozen (thawed) or fresh
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    12 corn tortillas, quartered
    1 19-ounce can mild red or green enchilada sauce
    1 1/4 cups shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
    Shredded chicken (buy one of those rotisserie chickens)

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in zucchini, beans, tomatoes, corn, cumin and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are heated through, about 3 minutes.
  3. Scatter half the tortilla pieces in the pan. Top with half the vegetable mixture, half the enchilada sauce and half the cheese. Repeat with one more layer of tortillas, vegetables, sauce and cheese. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake the casserole for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking until the casserole is bubbling around the edges and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes more.
