Description

Layers of seasoned lean ground Ontario beef, fresh salsa and nutrient-rich black beans form a festive pie the whole family can enjoy. Garnish with your choice of avocado, lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream.


Scale

Ingredients

1 lb (500 g) extra lean Ontario ground beef
1 cup (250 mL) salsa
1 cup (250 mL) canned black beans, rinsed and drained
½ cup (125 mL) sliced green onions
½ cup (125 mL) frozen corn
4 10-inch (25 cm) tortillas
2 cups (500 mL) shredded Monterey Jack cheese


Instructions

In a large non-stick skillet, over medium high heat, cook beef, breaking up into small pieces, until no pink remains, about 5 minutes. Drain off any fat. Stir in salsa, beans, green onion and corn. Set aside.

In a lightly greased 10-inch (25 cm) spring-form pan arrange 1 tortilla. Spread one third of the beef mixture evenly over top and sprinkle with ¼ cup (50 mL) of the cheese. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining tortilla and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Can be made up to this point one day ahead.

Bake in a 350°F (180°C) oven until cheese is bubbling, golden and heated through, approximately 15 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before removing outer ring and slicing into wedges. Serve topped with your choice of garnishes*.


Notes

Chef’s Tip: Garnish with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped avocado, sour cream, sliced jalapenos and cilantro.
