Layered Fiesta Casserole

This casserole has been in our recipe repertoire for quite a few years and never disappoints.  I honestly don't even know where this recipe came from.  But that doesn't matter now, does it?  Not since I decided to share it with you!  

We love mexican cuisine... we usually have at least one dinner a week that is in the cuisine and this is one of our favorites.  Normally we use ground turkey for our casseroles just to save on some fat/calories, but it certainly doesn't take away from flavor.

Layered Fiesta Casserole
1lb ground meat
1 onion, chopped
1 green and red pepper, chopped
1 jar salsa
1 can (14.5oz) diced tomatoes
1 pkg frozen corn
12 corn tortillas
1 1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Brown meat with onions & peppers in a large skillet. Drain. Return to stove. Stir in salsa, tomatoes, & corn. Bring to a boil.

Spoon 1 cup of meat mixture into a 13x9 dish. Top with 6 tortillas, overlapping if necessary. Cover with 1/2 of the remaining mixture. Top with cheese. Add remaining 6 tortillas, cover with meat and top with cheese.

Bake 25-30 min. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. 

To accompany this dish, I made Skinnytaste's Cilantro Lime Rice which was the first time that we made it and it was really delicious.
