    • 1 can (15 oz) corn kernels, drained
    • 1 cup diced bell peppers (a mix of colors)
    • 1 cup diced onions
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 can (10 oz) red enchilada sauce
    • 1 can (10 oz) green enchilada sauce
    • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 teaspoon chili powder
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 12 corn tortillas
    • Chopped fresh cilantro and sliced green onions for garnish

    Instructions:

    Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, black beans, corn, diced bell peppers, diced onions, minced garlic, ground cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper.

    Mix well to combine.

    In a separate bowl, mix together the red enchilada sauce and green enchilada sauce.

    Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

    Spread a small amount of the enchilada sauce mixture on the bottom of the baking dish.

    Place a layer of corn tortillas over the sauce, covering the bottom of the dish.

    Add a portion of the chicken mixture over the tortillas, spreading it evenly.

    Drizzle some of the enchilada sauce over the chicken mixture.

    Sprinkle a portion of shredded cheese over the sauce.

    Repeat the layers until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of cheese on top.

    Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the casserole is hot and bubbly.

    Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.

    Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.

    Garnish with chopped cilantro and sliced green onions before serving.

    Enjoy your delicious Chicken Enchilada Casserole!

    Serve it with sour cream, guacamole, or your favorite salsa on the side if desired.
