Chilaquiles Casserole

Chilaquiles Casserole

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 lb ground meat (turkey, chicken or beef)
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium zucchini, grated
1 19-ounce can black beans, rinsed
1 14-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
1 14-ounce can white beans, rinsed
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 reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown ground meat, onion and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in zucchini, beans, tomatoes, cumin and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are heated through, about 3 minutes.

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.

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.

Tonight, I’m serving with a fresh garden salad and fresh fruit compote.
