Mexican Lasagna

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 lbs ground chicken breast, available in the packaged meats case
  • 2 Tbs chili powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 1 cup salsa or 1 (14-oz) can stewed or fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • Salt
  • 8 (8 inch) flour or corn tortillas (whichever you prefer)
  • 2½ cups shredded Cheddar or shredded pepper jack
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped

How to Do It:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil – twice around the pan. Add chicken and season with chili powder, cumin, and red onion. Brown the meat, 5 minutes. Add taco sauce or stewed or fire roasted tomatoes. Add black beans and corn. Heat the mixture through, 2 to 3 minutes then season with salt, to your taste.
  3. Coat a shallow baking dish with remaining extra-virgin olive oil, about 1 tablespoon oil. Cut the tortillas in half or quarters to make them easy to layer with. Build lasagna in layers of meat and beans, then tortillas, then cheese. Repeat: meat, tortilla, cheese again. Bake lasagna 12 to 15 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly. Top with the scallions and serve.
