Happy Monday, y'all! I'm home again today from school (not complaining) because of this crazy, icy weather we've been having. I know that those of you who live up north are probably laughing at us right now, but just remember that here in Texas we get over 50 days of 100+ degree weather every year... so we get a pass when the cold finally hits. :)
As promised, here's another fast, easy supper for you guys. This one is a total no-brainer that I just made up on the fly as I was trying to use up what's left in our pantry and fridge. I knew I'd like it because I love all the ingredients, but it turned out even better than I expected! We absolutely loved this, and it made great leftovers for dinner the next day as well. During this hectic season, doesn't a delicious, no-brainer dinner sound just right?
Black Bean and Corn Enchilada Stack
2 (15 oz.) cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 oz.) can of red enchilada sauce
1 cup frozen corn
4 jalapenos, seeded and diced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
dash of cayenne pepper
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
12 corn tortillas
sliced green onions, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine black beans, 1 cup enchilada sauce, corn, jalapenos, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne, and 1/2 cup cheese.
Pour a bit of enchilada sauce into the bottom of your baking dish, swirling to coat. Place a layer of 4 corn tortillas on top. Add 1/2 of the black bean and corn mixture on top. Repeat. Add a final layer of tortillas, then top with remaining enchilada sauce and cheese.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Allow to stand for about 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with green onions if desired.
