Ingredients

  • 2 cups bottled strained tomatoes (passata)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce chopped
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup rinsed drained canned black beans
  • 3/4 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 3 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced

Method

In small saucepan, bring strained tomatoes, garlic, chili powder, oregano, chipotle pepper and salt to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, brown beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with wooden spoon. With slotted spoon, remove beef and set aside. Drain fat from pan.

Add oil to skillet; cook onion over medium heat until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add black beans and corn. Return beef to pan, stirring to combine. Stir in 1 cup of the sauce, mixing well.

Place 1 of the tortillas in greased 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish. Top with 1/4 cup of the cheese and half of the meat mixture. Repeat layers of tortilla, cheese and meat mixture once. Top with remaining tortilla and sauce. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake in 375?F (190?C) oven until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Slice and serve garnished with sour cream and green onion.
