This turned out quite nicely, great mix of textures and flavors. If you use store bought salsa and store bought tortilla chips you will want to watch the salt levels.

Ingredients

1 cup onions
chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup tomatoes
chopped
1 ½ cups corn
fresh or frozen
1 ½ cups black beans
cooked, (15oz can, drained)
2 tablespoons lime juice
fresh
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
ground
2 cups swiss chard
or spinach, rinsed, stemmed and chopped
2 cups tortilla chips
baked variety, crushed
*
8 ounces cheddar cheese
fat free, grated
2 cups salsa
tomato

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Sauté the onions in the oil for about 8 minutes, until translucent.

Stir in the tomatoes, corn, black beans, lime juice, salt, and pepper and continue to sauté for another 5 to 10 minutes, until just heated through.

Meanwhile, in another saucepan, blanch the greens in boiling water to cover for 1 to 3 minutes, until just wilted but still bright green.

Drain immediately and set aside.

Prepare an 8x8 inch casserole dish or baking pan with a very light coating of oil or cooking spray.

Spread half of the crushed tortilla chips on the bottom.

Spoon the sautéed vegetables over the tortilla chips and sprinkle on about two-thirds of the grated Cheddar cheese.

Arrange the greens evenly over the cheese and spoon on half of the salsa.

Finish with the rest of the tortilla chips and top with the remaining salsa and Cheddar.

Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown.

This turned out quite nicely, great mix of textures and flavors. If you use store bought salsa and store bought tortilla chips you will want to watch the salt levels. We made our own tortilla chips from corn tortillas and store-bought salsa and found the salt level was a bit high. A sodium reduced salsa would be perfect. Otherwise this has a great cheesy flavor, nice bits of tortila and the mix of beans, corn tomato and onions was very enjoyable.
