1 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1½ cups frozen sweet corn

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.

  3. Smooth ⅓ of the enchilada sauce over the bottom of a medium size baking pan (about 8×11). Lay tortillas on the bottom of the pan, slightly overlapping until pan is covered (about 4 tortillas).
  4. Spoon half of the beef mixture over top of the tortillas, spread evenly. Layer tortillas on top of beef mixture. Smooth ⅓ of the enchilada sauce over tortillas. Sprinkle ½ of the cheese on top. Scatter the green chiles over the cheese. Add the remaining beef mixture. Spread evenly. Layer tortillas on top of beef mixture. Spoon remaining enchilada sauce over tortillas. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top of tortillas. Garnish top with olives and scallions.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until cheese is melted and lasagna is warmed through. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
