Mexican Lasagna

Ingredients

    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    2 pounds ground chicken breast, available in the packaged meats case
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1/2 red onion, chopped
    1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
    1 cup medium heat taco sauce or 1 (14-oz) can stewed or fire roasted tomatoes
    1 cup frozen corn kernels
    Salt
    8 (8 inch) spinach flour tortillas, available on dairy aisle of market
    2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar or shredded pepper jack
    2 scallions, finely chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil - twice around the pan. Add chicken and season with chili powder, cumin, and red onion. Brown the meat, 5 minutes. Add taco sauce or stewed or fire roasted tomatoes. Add black beans and corn. Heat the mixture through, 2 to 3 minutes then season with salt, to your taste.

Coat a shallow baking dish with remaining extra-virgin olive oil, about 1 tablespoon oil. Cut the tortillas in half or quarters to make them easy to layer with. Build lasagna in layers of meat and beans, then tortillas, then cheese. Repeat: meat, tortilla, cheese again. Bake lasagna 12 to 15 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly. Top with the scallions and serve.
