Stacked Enchilada Recipe

Stacked Enchilada Recipe

A classic Tex-Mex dish combines the building blocks of a meal - protein, vegetables and starch - in hearty recipes with a peppery punch. Chicken, black beans, green peppers, tortillas and cheddar show how it's done in this stacked version of a traditional Tex-Mex casserole. —Rebecca Pepsin, Longmont, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 4 corn tortillas (6 inches)
