  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 15-ounce can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 cups shredded Mexican-style cheese or cheddar and Monterey
  • 6 large flour tortillas
  • 1 large can of enchilada sauce


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large skillet, brown the ground beef, and drain fat, if necessary
  • Add onion, pepper and jalapeno pepper, and cook until slightly soft.
  • Season with sea salt, garlic, cumin, smoked paprika and pepper
  • Stir in corn, and 1 cup of enchilada sauce, and cook until heated through. Remove from heat
  • Grease the bottom of a 13X9 pan with cooking spray or olive oil, and then add some of the enchilada sauce to the bottom.
  • Place 2 tortillas in pan over the enchilada sauce. The ends will overlap
  • Add half of the meat mixture and 1 cup of cheese over the tortillas
  • Place 2 more tortillas over the first layer, then add the remaining meat mixture and 1 cup of cheese over meat.
  • Add last 2 tortillas, and spoon enchilada sauce over tortillas and around the sides. Top with remaining cheese, and bake for about 30 minutes or until bubbly and the cheese is completely melted.
  • Remove from oven, and allow to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing


You can also tear the tortillas lengthwise to resemble lasagna noodles.
1 packed of taco seasoning can be used in place of spices.
