  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 small green bell peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 cup corn, fresh or thawed frozen
  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped, divided
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, divided
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt-free taco seasoning mix
  • 1 (15ounce) can no-salt-added black beans, rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 (6-inch) corn tortillas, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons seeded and finely chopped jalapeño pepper


  1. Position rack 6 inches from heat source; preheat broiler. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, corn and 1 cup onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened and the corn is browned in spots, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. (Do not wipe the pan clean.)

  2. Add ground beef, cumin and garlic powder to the pan; cook over medium-high heat, stirring and breaking up the beef into small pieces with a wooden spoon, about 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons sour cream; cook, stirring to mix thoroughly, about 1 minute. Cook, stirring often, until the beef is browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in salsa and taco seasoning until combined.

  3. Stir in the reserved bell pepper mixture, black beans, 2 tablespoons lime juice, salt and pepper. Remove from heat; stir in cream cheese, 1/2 cup Cheddar, and the remaining 6 tablespoons sour cream. Top evenly with remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar and tortilla pieces.

  4. Broil until the cheese is melted and the tortilla pieces are slightly crispy, about 4 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, combine cilantro, jalapeño and the remaining 1/3 cup onion, and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a small bowl. Spoon the cilantro mixture over the casserole before serving. (recipe: eatingwell.com)
