Yesterday I took some lean beef out of the freezer to cook for dinner but I didn't really have a game plan in mind. Well I came up with this casserole - and it turned out so delicious!! It is low in calorie, and it's so good I ate two servings - and didn't feel guilty about it!! ;) I just made an 8x8 dish of it - and that's what the nutrition information is based on (4 servings) but you could easily make this larger to serve more people. I topped mine with a little plain non-fat greek yogurt (in place of sour cream).
1/2lb Lean Ground Beef (96/4) ((You could use ground turkey))
1/4 cup frozen yellow corn
1.25 cups zucchini, sliced/quartered
3 medium mushrooms - chopped
1 can diced tomatoes w/green chiles - drained
1/2 cup black beans (I used cooked from dry that I had made but you can also use canned - just be sure to rinse them thoroughly to reduce sodium)
2tbsp enchilada sauce
1/8 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar
1/4 cup salsa (I used black bean & corn salsa)
2 flour tortillas
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
Brown ground beef - I seasoned mine with cumin & ground red pepper.
Set aside in a bowl and add 1/2 can diced tomatoes.
Saute veggies & remaining 1/2 can tomatoes - I also seasoned them with cumin & ground red pepper -- also add enchilada sauce at this point.
Layer as follows in the baking dish -- salsa, then 1 tortilla, then add the meat/tomatoes, and 1/2 of the cheese - then add another tortilla, then the veggies, and finish off with remaining cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes
Makes 4 servings.
