Made this today and added leftover mashed sweet potatoes to the black bean/corn mixture. Delicious! Served with shredded lettuce and avacodo. This will become a staple for sure!

Our version of this enchilada-style chilaquiles casserole is packed with nutritious beans and vegetables. Canned prepared enchilada sauce has great flavor and keeps the prep time quick. It can vary in heat level so find one that suits your taste. If you want to eliminate the heat altogether, try a green enchilada sauce (which is often milder than red) or substitute two 8-ounce cans of plain tomato sauce.

I live in New York City where the "Mexican" food is abysmal, because there is too much Caribbean influence here. I am originally from Southern California and I miss what I consider to be the good Mexican stuff. But why are black beans so common in "Mexican" recipes and prepared food? Where are the good old pinto beans they always used in southwestern Mexican food and the real refried beans deliciously made with fat, not vegetable oil? Is the Caribbean or the Mexican Caribbean coast style the supposedly "authentic" Mexican food now? I've been making a wonderful casserole for years without beans at all. Just layers of soft corn tortillas, with cheese(s), chopped fresh white onions and split black olives between the tortillas, with red or green (tomatillo) sauce on top (with a few chopped tomatoes and maybe some cilantro). What's wrong with that? Is it too simple and authentic? I won't even mention the real tamales from LA and the heavenly light chile rellenos stuffed with cheese instead of ... beef. Beef in a chile relleno Ugh! And where are albondigas meatball soup or chicken tortilla soup? Too bad most of you will never taste authentic Mexican food.
We love this recipe. It is easy and healthy. Made it for our daughter's family and now she makes it too.
Loved it!!! So easy and deee-lish!!!! Yum!
Very, very good! I didnt have foil so I covered the top layer with more tortilla pieces. The top pieces got crunchy but didnt burn, so it ended up being delicious! I doubled the zucchinis and added ground turkey to the mix. Fairly easy, and made a ton of food. It has so many veggies, but doesn't have that plain veggie taste (great if you have little picky eaters) I'd recommend to anyone!
