Tortilla Tower Bake
1/2 cup cooked rice
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup corn kernels (I used frozen)
1 (4 ounce) can green chiles
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 cup + 2 tablespoons vegan queso, divided (I used Nacho Mom's)
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons vegan cheddar cheese, divided (I used Daiya)
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
5 flour tortillas
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine rice with beans, corn, chiles, hot sauce, 1 cup queso, 1/4 cup vegan cheese, cilantro, salt and pepper and mix well.
2. Place 1 tortilla in the bottom of a deep baking dish and top with a large scoop of the rice mixture. Alternate layers of tortilla and filling until all the mixture is used up. A plain tortilla should be on top.
3. Spread a layer of the remaining queso on the top tortilla and sprinkle with remaining vegan cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes, or until heated through and cheese melts.
