Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

  • In a medium frying pan, sauté onion until translucent, for about 4 minutes. Add corn and cook until brown on one side, for approximately another 4 minutes. Add cream cheese and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in cilantro and set aside.
  • Stir together the black beans, and Pico de Gallo in a medium bowl.
  • Arrange the ingredients in layers in a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan: 4 Casa Mendosa® tortilla halves to cover, followed by one-third of the bean mixture, one-third of the corn and ¼ cup of the Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat twice more, while packing down the layers. Sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup shredded cheese, Cotija cheese, and chili powder.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and cook for approximately 15 – 20 minutes, until heated through and the cheese is melted. Remove foil, and if desired, set oven to broil to brown the cheese on top.
  • Let stand 10 minutes, slice into wedges and serve with lime if desired.
