Mexican Ground Beef Casserole is an easy, family friendly meal. Loaded with hamburger meat, beans, corn, and lots of cheese, this casserole is the ultimate Mexican comfort food!


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 cups corn (frozen or canned)
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 3 cups shredded Mexican cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray a casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Brown ground beef along with onion and bell pepper in a large skillet. Drain and return mixture to the skillet.
  3. Add enchilada sauce, beans, and corn and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Layer 6 corn tortillas in the bottom of the baking dish. Spread half of the meat mixture over the top, then add half of the cheese.
  5. Layer the remaining 6 tortillas over the top and again top with the remaining meat mixture.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and top with cheese. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.


Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 3 days. I do not recommend freezing this recipe.
