Cheesy Enchilada Casserole

Another one-pot wonder, the casserole has a spot in my heart, for quick, easy and filling. I also love the way leftovers reheat so easily. I found this recipe here and made it vegan using my favorite go to vegan substitutes.
  • 1 package Gardein beefless ground
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups salsa
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium taco seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 6 corn tortillas (8 inches)
  • 1 1/4 cups of frozen corn
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups Daiya PepperJack cheese
  • Garnish: shredded lettuce, sour cream, pickled jalapenos, scallions, cilantro

In a large skillet, cook Gardein and onion over medium heat until onion is translucent.

Stir in the salsa, beans, corn, sour cream, taco seasoning and cumin.

Spoon a generous layer of meat mixture on bottom of 2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with grated cheese.

Place a layer of tortillas on top of meat mixture. You may have to cut them to fit your dish.

Layer with half of the meat mixture, and cheese and another layer of tortillas. Then top with more grated cheese.

Cover with foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray and bake at 400° for 25 minutes, or until hot & bubbly.

Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Garnish with your choice garnishes.
