So Janelle had this great idea for a girl's night.... we all made a little something to share for dinner, and we all brought the recipe to share with whomever wanted it, I couldn't decide between chicken cheese rolls, or this tastylicious layered mexican bake thing that I had seen in a magazine... the mexican bake won!! :) so here is the recipe and pictures, I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did!! :)
What you need:
1 lb of extra-lean ground beef
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tbs. chili powder
1 small jar of salsa, I used albertsons southwest style salsa, I thought it'd b appropriate since it has corn and black beans
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen corn
4 high-fiber whole wheat tortillas (8 inch) I used white ones, I wasn't sure how I felt about wheat ones
1/2 cup of light sour cream
cheese, the recipe called for a ridiculous amount something like 1/4 cup.... but I definitly used more!
Heat: oven to 375 F
Brown: meat with onions and pepprs in large skillet on medium-high heat. stir in chili powder; cook 1 min.
Add salsa and corn; mix well. Simmer 5 min.
Spread: 1 cup of meat sauce onto botto of 8 or 9 inch square baking dish; top with layers of 1 tortilla, 1/2 cup of meat sauce, sor cream and cheese. Cover with one , 1 cup of the remainig meat sauce and more cheese; top with remaining tortilla and meat sauce. Cover with foil.
Bake: 25 min. or until casserole is heated through Top with more cheese, bake uncovered
for 5 minutes or until melted.
Special extra: garnish with chopped cilantro and green onions just before serving.
