Black Bean Chilaquile

(this pic is ugly sorry...)
This recipe comes together quickly and is healthy. It's similar to the Mexican Lasagna recipe that is also posted, but I think I prefer this one. Give it a try. I love a good veggie filled dinner that my kids will eat!

1 c chopped onions
1 T olive oil
1 can diced tomato or 1 cup chopped fresh tomato
1 1/2 c frozen/canned corn
15 oz can black beans rinsed/drained
2 T fresh lime juice
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
2 c rinsed stemmed and chopped spinach
1/2 c cilantro
2 c crushed baked or regular tortilla chips
2 c of your favorite salsa
8 oz grated cheddar

1.Preheat oven to 350. Saute onions in oil until translucent. Stir in tomatoes, corn, black beans, lime, salt, and pepper. Heat thru.
2.Blanch spinach greens or use thawed frozen spinach..drain all water from spinach. place spinach and cilantro in food processor and pulse to chop finely (do not puree)
3.Prepare an 8x8 dish with cooking spray. Spread half of crushed tortilla chips on the bottom. Spoon vegetable mixture over chips and sprinkle on 2/3 cheese. Arrange spinach mixture over cheese and top with 1/2 the salsa. Repeat layers once more ending with cheese last.
4.Bake 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!

P.S. I have made this without the salsa before and it also works well, it will just not be as moist...but still delish!
