Vegetarian Mexican Tortilla Casserole

Vegetarian Mexican Tortilla Casserole

This delicious casserole is easy to assemble and doesn’t take long to bake. I’m a wimp, so I go easy on the spice. Those of you who like it hot can add more before it goes into the oven or just douse it with hot sauce before you eat.

Vegetarian Mexican Tortilla Casserole


2T Olive Oil
1 Mexican Green Onion, chopped
3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2T Cilantro, chopped
1 15 oz. Can Black Beans
1/2 t cumin
1/2 t Hatch chile powder
Salt to taste
1 cup shredded cheese
9 Corn Tortillas

Sour Cream and/or guacamole


Pre-heat oven to 400°.

Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add onion and garlic when the oil is hot.

Cook for 2-3 minutes until soft and then add all other ingredients (except tortillas and cheese).

Simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Lightly cover baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.

Place three tortillas in the bottom of the dish. Top with 1/3 of the seasoned bean mixture and 1/4 cup cheese.

Repeat for the 2nd layer.

Repeat for the 3rd layer using the remaining mix and a 1/2 cup of cheese.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese starts to brown.

    I love this recipe especially because it contains no meat. With the high prices of everything meaty lately, this is a wonderful option for my family. Thanks!

    This would be a quick and easy meal for everyone, instead of the normal taco night meal. My niece would like this too being a vegetarian. thanks

    This looks yummy, but I think I’ll leave out the 1/2 t Hatch chile powder…too hot for me!

    @Katklaw777 Hatch is unique in that it’s available as either hot or mild. The mild gives food a delicious chile flavor without the heat. My family likes it hot, but mild is much better for me.
