Ingredients

  • 25-28 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups red enchilada sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon chili sauce
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 ½ cups corn kernels canned or frozen & thawed
  • 2 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups vegan cheese of choice shredded

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  • In a bowl, mix the enchilada sauce and chili sauce together until well combined.
  • Spread about ½ cup of the sauce mixture over the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Lay 6-8 tortillas on top of the sauce layer and then spread about 1 more cup of the sauce onto the tortillas, fully coating them.
  • Sprinkle half the beans, half the corn, and half of the bell peppers on top of the tortillas and top with a third of the vegan cheese.
  • Repeat the layers starting with the tortillas, then add sauce, then the rest of the beans, bell peppers, corn, and another third of the cheese.
  • Top this all with another layer of tortillas.
  • Coat with the remaining sauce and sprinkle over the remaining cheese.
  • Place in the oven for 45-55 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the middle is cooked through.
