  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped, for topping
  • 1/4 or more green onions, for topping
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1.5 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 corn or flour tortillas, cut into quarters
  • 1.5 cups red enchilada sauce (I used Whole Food’s 365 Organic Red Enchilada Sauce.)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • sour cream and avocado or guacamole, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9-inch round baking dish. (If you don’t have a round dish you can use a similar-sized rectangular baking dish.)
  2. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add beef, onion and red pepper to skillet; crumble beef and cook for 12-15 minutes or until beef is cooked throughout.
  3. Stir in corn, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and salt; cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the corn is heated through and the spices are fragrant. Remove from heat.
  4. Place four of the tortilla wedges in the baking dish. Brush 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce onto the tortilla. Top with one-half of the beef mixture and 1/2 cup cheese. Top with another four tortillas and brush 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce on top. Top with the other half the beef mixture and 1/2 cup cheese. Top with the remaining four tortilla wedges, 1/2 cup enchilada sauce and 1/2 cup cheese.
  5. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is warmed throughout.
  6. Top with diced tomatoes and green onions.
  7. Serve with sour cream and avocado or guacamole.
