Mexican Casserole

For Christmas Eve, I had a request to make my Mexican Casserole. I had to go to the grocery store to pick up tortillas on Christmas Eve. The line was long but as long as you are prepared to wait, it's not so bad.

Mexican Casserole
Prep Time: 20 min     Bake Time: 30 min
tortillas (I used corn tortillas. About 10 small ones.)
1 lb ground meat
1 small onion (diced)
1 cup salsa
1 corn
1 black beans
1/2 cup salsa
a little butter/oil for the pan

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Melt a little butter in a pan. Add diced onions to cook. After about three minutes, add the ground meat. When the meat is browned, remove some of the liquid by pouring it out or using a spoon. Add salsa, black beans, and corn. Your mixture is finished.

In an 8x8 pan, cover the bottom with corn tortillas. Spoon about half the mixture on top of the tortillas. Sprinkle a layer of cheese on the mixture. Cover the cheese with another layer of tortillas. Spoon the other half of the mixture on top of the tortillas. Then add another cheese layer and tortilla layer. Put a layer of salsa on top.

From the bottom:

Bake the casserole at 350F for half an hour. Pull it out to top the salsa with a cheese layer. Bake for another five minutes to melt the top layer of cheese.

Cut and serve. Enjoy!! =)
