Mexican Casserole

My son was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease so my cooking world has been turned upside down as I learn how to cook without wheat. Here is a recipe I've used a few times and it's always been a hit. It's great because you can substitute ingredients for whatever you have on hand and it still tastes great!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 lb. ground beef (or turkey)
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 green pepper chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans drained (or whatever beans on hand)
1 can corn drained
1 packet Taco seasoning
2 cups cheddar cheese
10-12 white corn tortillas cut into strips
Sour Cream

Brown beef and add onions and pepper, cook until soft. Add seasoning and stir well. Add tomatoes, beans, and corn, let simmer for 5 minutes.

Cover bottom of 9X12 casserole dish with 1/2 of tortilla strips. Spoon half of hamburger mixture over tortillas. Sprinkle half of shredded cheese over top and repeat layers.

Cook 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Serve with chopped olives, lettuce and sour cream.
