  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, jalapenos, bell pepper, and garlic; cook and stir until onion is translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and add salsa, black beans, corn, chili powder, and cumin. Bring to a simmer; let simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Combine 2 cups pepper Jack cheese, ricotta cheese, spinach, egg, salt, and pepper in a bowl.

  • Place 6 corn tortillas in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Add 1/2 of the vegetable mixture using a slotted spoon, followed by 1/2 of the cheese and spinach mixture. Add a layer of 6 tortillas and follow with remaining vegetables and remaining cheese mixture. Top with remaining tortillas. Spread enchilada sauce across the top and remaining pepper Jack cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbly, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

Flavor is dependent on salsa and enchilada sauce used; for example if you do not like spicy foods, use a mild salsa and enchilada sauce.

This dish was a hit with the whole family. Followed recipe exactly, other than adding a little extra spinach since we love it. The ratio of veggies and cheese and corn tortillas is perfect ! The enchilada sauce and salsa you use can vary the flavors to your liking, which is perfect. I used green enchilada sauce, next time I will try using red. Read More

Very good and such a alternative to Italian lasagna! I did not have spinach so left that out and it was fine. My guests loved it as they only have had the same kind of vegetarian lasagna. Thanks will make againz! Read More

One of the best recipes I have tried from here....it's delicious!! Made a few adaptations to make putting the casserole together a bit easier. Used 3/4 tsp crushed red pepper instead of jalapeno. Next time I might cut back to 1/2 tsp. I used 2 tsp chopped garlic from a jar. I suggest using chunky salsa that is refrigerated at the store. I also added a bit of brown sugar to the salsa to pacify some of the acidity of the tomatoes. I substituted cottage cheese for the ricotta. Makes the cheese layer so much easier to spread. The recipe makes a large casserole and it does freeze well. BIg hit with my husband and neighbor. Read More

I prepared and served this dish at our weekly pot-luck dinner. It was well received, even by the “gotta have meat” group. Changes I made: extra red bell pepper, about 1/2 cup extra pepper jack cheese on top and 2oz extra enchilada sauce (the can was 10oz). I’ll definitely prepare this dish again. Read More

This dish is something I make every week, cut into 8 servings and send out for lunches as well as dinners! I leave out cheeses and use cottage cheese instead of ricotta for extra creaminess and it turns out amazing! Give it a try! Read More

I thought it was amazing The only change I made was the cumin as I didn't have any even though I thought I did. So I subbed and curry instead. It was so filling and overall not difficult. Read More

The changes made: Lowest salt salsa possible Used rehydrated dry black beans No enchilada sauce Whole wheat tortillas Less cheese and for 1/2 of the recipe, one 5oz bag of fresh spinach, wilted and scissor “chopped” And low fat small curd cottage cheese That’s probably a lot of changes but worked well is worth doing again. I have to prepare low fat, low salt meals. Read More
