Cook That

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x12 casserole dish with non stick spray.
  2. Cook ground beef with the chorizo until browned. Stir in 1 cup of salsa and the water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Cut flour tortillas into halves or quarters and create a layer in the bottom of the baking dish. Evenly spread half of the chorizo mixture. Top with half of the beans, half of the corn, and half of the remaining salsa. Sprinkle with half of the shredded cheese.
  4. Repeat the layer: tortilla, meat mixture, beans, corn, salsa, cheese.
  5. Bake for 30 - 45 minutes until heated through and bubbly. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
  6. (If heating from frozen, thaw in refrigerator overnight before baking. Adjust baking time as needed to heat through.)
