  Lean ground beef 2 Pound (May Use Any Type Of Ground Beef)
  Onion 1 Medium, chopped
  Tomato sauce 16 Ounce (Two 8 Ounce Cans)
  Canned mexicorn 11 Ounce, drained (1 Can)
  Enchilada sauce 10 Ounce (1 Can)
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Corn tortillas 15
  Shredded sharp cheddar cheese 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Cooking oil spray 1 (For Pan)

Brown 2 pounds of ground beef, along with 1 medium chopped onion in a large, deep skillet, stirring continually until the beef is crumbly and the onions are clear. Stir in (2) 8-oz. cans tomato sauce, an 11-oz. can Mexicorn, 10-oz. can enchilada sauce, 1 teaspoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon dried oregano, ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Place over medium to high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low to medium and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spray the bottom and sides of a 13-inch by 9-inch by 2-inch baking dish with cooking oil spray. Place about 9 corn tortillas along the sides and bottom of the dish, covering the sides and bottom completely. Spoon half of the hot beef mixture over the tortillas. Sprinkle with 1 of the 2 cups of Cheddar cheese, reserving the other for later. Repeat the layers, using about 6 corn tortillas, the other half of the beef mixture, and the remaining cup of Cheddar cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the casserole is bubbling, the cheese is melted and the corn tortillas are beginning to brown. Remove from the oven, and serve immediately. I served mine with a glass of iced tea, and a Southern dessert, Applesauce Cake with Penuche Icing. You will love this one!!!
