Trader Joe's Street Corn Enchilada Casserole

Cook Time 25 mins

Equipment

  • heatproof bowl
  • 8x8” baking dish, or 10” cast iron skillet

Ingredients

  • 1 bag TJ’s Mexican Style Roasted Corn
  • 1 bag TJ’s Fire Roasted Bell Peppers and Onions
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded pepper jack cheese
  • Kosher salt
  • 12 ounces salsa verde
  • 8 to 10 to rtillas of your choosing I used TJ’s corn and wheat
  • Cilantro for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Empty the bags of corn and peppers into a large heatproof bowl. Set the packet of cotija cheese from the corn aside for later. Cover with a plate and microwave for 4 minutes. Uncover and microwave for 2 more minutes. Stir to coat in sauce. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, then adjust to taste. Stir in 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese.
  • Pour a thin layer of salsa verde into the bottom of an 8x8” baking dish, or 10” cast iron skillet, or something of a similar size. Add a layer of tortillas, tearing them as needed to cover the bottom of the dish. Then add about half of the corn and peppers, another layer of corn tortillas, a layer of salsa verde, all but 1/4 cup of the corn and peppers, another layer of corn tortillas, salsa verde cheese, 1/2 cup pepper jack cheese, and the remaining bit of the corn and peppers.
  • Cover with aluminum foil (spray it with cooking spray if it’s going to touch the cheese) and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and broil on high for 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese is lightly browned.
  • Garnish with the cotija cheese (from the bag of corn) and cilantro. Let them rest for a few minutes, then dig in!
