“This is from "Vegetarian Times: Low-Fat and Fast" (highly recommended). I've made it quite a few times now, and it's a nice bit of comfort food that doesn't require meat, doesn't add on the pounds, and uses up stuff left in the fridge. I like to serve it with lime cilantro rice and salad. For a tight schedule, assemble ahead of time and refrigerate and then pop it in the oven.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic, and cook, stirring, until tender (about 5 minutes).
  3. Stir in the spices and cook one more minute.
  4. Stir in beans, corn, and tomato sauce. Remove from heat.
  5. Spray 2-quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  6. Spread 4 tortillas over the bottom of the dish. Spoon half the bean mixture over tortillas and spread evenly. Spoon half the cottage cheese over the bean mixture and spread evenly. Evenly sprinkle half the shredded cheese over the cottage cheese. Repeat layers using the remaining tortillas, beans, cottage cheese, and shredded cheese.
  7. Bake until heated through and cheese is bubbly, about 20 minutes (or a bit more if prepared and refrigerated ahead of time).
