What You Need

  • 1 pkg Johnsonville Tex Mex Style Pure Pork Sausage Meat
  • 3.5 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 green chili, diced
  • 1 cup corn (frozen or fresh off the cob)
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 bunch cilantro sprigs, chopped

Preparation

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat cook Johnsonville Tex Mex sausage, breaking it up as it cooks with a wooden spoon (approximatey 5 minutes). Add the tomatoes, black beans, green chilis, and corn, then stir to combine. Turn heat to medium low, bring to a lower simmer for 5-8 minutes, stirring occassionally.

  2. Perheat oven to 350F. In a 9x13" baking dish, spoon about 1.5 cups of meat sauce into dish to lightly coat the bottom. Place 6 corn tortillas over the sauce (overlapping in some areas is expected). Spoon half of the remaining sauce over the tortillas and gently spread out evenly. Sprinkle half of both cheeses over the meat sauce. Repeat with 6 more tortillas, remaining sauce and top with remaining cheese.

  3. Cover with foil, bake for 30 minutes, uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Add 1-2 minutes under the broiler if you want the cheese bubbling and slighly golden. Remove from the oven, allow the casserole to sit for 5 minutes, sprinkle with cilantro and serve.

  4. Optional: serve with guacamole, sour cream or top with crumbled tortilla chips
