    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 (15 ounce) can enchilada sauce (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
    • 1/2 jalapeno pepper (finely chopped) (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      In a non-stick pan with a little water (1 tbsp.), sauté the pepper, garlic, and onion for about 5-10 minutes, or until softened (not too long, the onions are SO good crunchy).
    3. 3
      Place mix in a medium bowl and add diced tomatoes, cilantro (alternately, the cilantro can be sprinkled in as two layers, if easier) and chives. Mix well and set aside.
    4. 4
      Spray a 9 X 13-inch baking pan with non-stick spray. Line the bottom with a layer of tortillas (cut some of them to fit, if desired). Cover most of the bottom of the pan. For reference: I use four tortillas on the bottom, three for the next layer and three for the final layer.
    5. 5
      Place 1 ½ cans of the refried beans in a small bowl, stir, and spread evenly over the tortillas.
    6. 6
      Cover the refried beans with half of the pepper-onion-tomato mixture.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle entire dish lightly with 1/2 tsp cumin.
    8. 8
      Cover with half the can of corn.
    9. 9
      Cover with half the can of beans.
    10. 10
      Cover with 1/2 THE SALSA, add another layer of tortillas and REPEAT above layers (steps 5-9).
    11. 11
      Cover with a final layer of tortillas.
    12. 12
      Sprinkle with black olives.
    13. 13
      Top with the remaining 1 cup salsa.
    14. 14
      Bake for about 30 minutes or until hot throughout. If allowed to cool for about 10 minutes, it will be easier to cut.

      I loved the flavors of this. The cilantro and sauteed veggies really made this dish. I would aslo recommned serving with corn chips, I think it need that crunch. I added some chicken to mine, I just diced it really small and added it to the veggies while they were cooking. Great idea, thanks for posting! Made for PAC fall 08.
