  • 2 cans - (10 oz each) enchilada sauce
  • 1 pounds - extra-lean (at least 95%) ground beef
  • 1 1/4 cups - chopped onion
  • 2 - medium poblano chiles (OR one can of diced green chilies), seeded, chopped
  • 2 cloves - garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cans - 15 oz. black beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 cups - frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
  • 1 packages - 1 oz. 25% less sodium taco seasoning mix
  • 10 - corn tortillas (6-inch)
  • 2 cups - shredded reduced-fat four-cheese Mexican cheese blend (8 oz.)
  • 1/4 cups - chopped fresh cilantro, optional
  • - light sour cream, chopped fresh tomato, lime wedges, optional, for serving
  • Directions:

    Spray 5-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. Spoon 1/2 cup enchilada sauce into bottom of slow cooker; spread evenly. In small bowl, reserve 1/2 cup enchilada sauce; set aside.

    In large skillet, cook beef, onion, poblano chiles (or green chilies) and garlic over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked. Drain if necessary.

    Stir in remaining enchilada sauce (not the 1/2 cup reserved), black beans, corn and taco seasoning mix. Cook and stir about 3 minutes or until heated through. Remove from heat.

    Place 1 tortilla in center of slow cooker. Cut 1 tortilla in half; place one half on each side of whole tortilla. Spoon 1 and 1/3 cups beef mixture over tortillas; sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the cheese. Top with 2 more tortillas, cutting to fit.

    Repeat layers 3 more times with beef mixture, tortillas and cheese. Top with reserved 1/2 cup sauce.

    Cover; cook on Low heat setting for 3 hours. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Turn slow cooker off; cover and let stand about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

    Sprinkle with cilantro before serving with additional toppings, as desired.
