I checked the internet and here's what I found...
I believe it comes from A Taste of Home. It was a Mexican lasagna (recipe below), with layers of yummy goodness!
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken (I used lean ground beef)
1 cup each diced onions and diced green bell pepper
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed (I used more)
1 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn
1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cups pasta sauce (I used plain ol' tomato sauce)
1 cup medium salsa
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro (more,more,more)
4 large or 8 small whole wheat flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups shredded light sharp cheddar cheese (I used a blend of light mozzarella and cheddar)
1/4 cup green onions (more)
sour cream, optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9-inch casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a large nonstick skillet, cook the ground chicken (or ground beef), onions, green pepper and garlic over medium-high heat until the chicken is no longer pink. Break up any large pieces of chicken as it is cooking.
Add black beans, tomatoes, corn, chili powder and cumin. Cook and stir for 2 more minutes. Add pasta sauce, salsa and black pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cilantro and remove from heat.
As part of my mexican lasagna fantasy, I was assembling it in this particular Pyrex casserole. It the 475 size 2 1/2 quarts and it fits small tortillas perfectly!
I took it out of the oven and it looked pretty pale...so I removed the foil and stuck it back in the oven for about 15 mins.
Layers of yumminess!
Last layer....I was worried that the green onions would taste blah after cooking but they were heavenly!
All bubbly and hot from the oven!
I served it with a green salad. It was better than my old recipe!
Since I looooovvvveeee leftovers; I had enough of eveything for a smaller second one that is now waiting in the freezer! In Pyrex of course!
Have a great day!
