Recipe Ingredients for Mexican Casserole

15 ounce Spaghetti Sauce
15 ounce white beans
1 1/2 cups corn
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium zucchini
14 ounce diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp salt
12 Extra Thin Yellow Corn Tortillas
1 1/4 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Recipe Directions for Mexican Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in zucchini, beans, tomatoes, corn, cumin and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are heated through, about 3 minutes.

  3. Scatter half the tortilla pieces in the pan. Top with half the vegetable mixture, half the enchilada sauce and half the cheese. Repeat with one more layer of tortillas, vegetables, sauce and cheese. Cover with foil.

  4. Bake the casserole for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking until the casserole is bubbling around the edges and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes more.
