Today’s ooey, gooey, cheesy and delicious recipe comes from Becca H of It’s Yummilicious
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Yields: 6 Servings
• 1 Tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
• 1 small white or yellow onion, diced
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 2 cans (13 oz each) white meat chicken breast, drained
• 1/2 packet taco seasoning
• 2 Tablespoons water
• 1 small can diced green chiles
• 1 cup (1/2 can) canned black beans, rinsed
• 1/2 cup corn niblets (frozen or canned)
• 1 jar black bean & corn salsa (I used Newman’s Own)
• 9 corn tortillas, taco size
• 1 can red enchilada sauce (I used Old El Paso)
• 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (I used Sargento)
• 1/8 cup chopped cilantro (optional), for garnish
• sour cream (optional), for garnish
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally until translucent. Add garlic and continue cooking about 1 more minute, being careful not to burn the garlic.
3. Add the cooked chicken, taco seasoning, and water to the pan and use a fork to shred the chicken.
4. Add the chiles, black beans, corn, and salsa and stir to combine. Simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes, or until heated through. Turn to low and keep warm.
5. Place 1/4 cup enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish. Use a spatula to spread the sauce so that it covers the bottom of the dish.
6. Place 3 tortillas on top of the sauce. Spread one half of the chicken mixture on top of the tortillas and top with 1/3 cup of the shredded cheese. Place 3 more tortillas on top of the cheese and then add another 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce, the other half of the chicken mixture, and another 1/3 cup of cheese. Top with 3 more tortillas, the remaining enchilada sauce, and the remaining cheese.
7. Cover the casserole with aluminum foil and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and let the casserole rest for 5-7 minutes to help make it easier to cut and serve.
8. Top with more salsa, sour cream, cilantro, or any of your other favorite taco toppings, if desired.
