Enchilada Casser-Ole

This is a new recipe for my family and we LOVED it!!  We eat Mexican dishes often, so I am always looking for different variations.  This one is definitely a keeper!  Enjoy!!

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups salsa
1 can (15oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup reduced-fat Italian dressing
1 pkg. reduced-sodium taco seasoning
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
6 flour tortillas (8in)
3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
3 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

shredded lettuce
chopped tomato
fresh cilantro

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion; drain.  Stir in salsa, beans, dressing, taco seasoning and cumin.  Place 2 tortillas on the bottom of a casserole dish coated with cooking spray.  Spread 1/4 cup of sour cream onto tortillas.  Layer with 1/3 of beef mixture and spread 1 cup of cheese on top of that.  Repeat two times.

Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.  Uncover and bake another 5-10 minutes (I usually turn my broiler on for a minute or two at the end to make the cheese bubble).  Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting (I serve mine like you would lasagna).  Top with lettuce, tomato and fresh cilantro!
