Ingredients Needed For Our Cheesy Enchilada Casserole Recipe:

How To Make This Cheesy Enchilada Casserole Recipe:
Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees.
Then in a large skillet, brown the ground beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is done, and then drain the meat.
Place the meat back into the pan and add in the salsa, black beans, Italian dressing, sour cream, drained can of corn, taco seasoning, and cumin, and mix it all together.
Then in a 2-quart baking dish add about ⅓ of the seasoned meat mixture.
Next, sprinkle ⅓ of the grated cheese on top and put a layer of tortillas over top.
Once you have completed that layer, spread another ⅓ of the meat mixture over top of the tortillas, along with another ⅓ of the cheese.
Add another layer of tortillas and then repeat the meat and cheese layers.
Spray a piece of tin foil with nonstick cooking spray and then cover the baking dish with the foil and place the dish in the oven for 25 minutes or until the casserole is hot and bubbly.
Once the casserole is done cooking, pull it out and top it off with the lettuce, diced tomato, and fresh cilantro.
