Add beef back to pan with fajita seasoning and cook 1 minute, stirring often. Stir in canned tomatoes, lower heat slightly and simmer 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until vegetables are cooked through but not mushy and tomatoes have sweetened. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro and green onion.  Preheat oven to 350°F. In a greased 9×13” pan layer 1/3rd of tomato and beef mixture, place tortillas on top of this, cut sides facing outside of pan. Top with next 1/3rd of beef mixture, sprinkle with 1/2 of corn, beans and cheese, repeat with remaining tortillas, beef mixture, corn, beans and cheese, cover dish with lightly greased foil. Baked for 35 minutes, remove foil and bake 5-10 minutes longer until outside is bubbling and cheese is fully melted. Allow to cool 5 minutes and serve. Garnish with sour cream, guacamole, salsa, cilantro and green onion. Enjoy! 

 

Corn Tortillas:

Corn tortillas, available in the bread section of Pete’s are made from dried, powdered corn (maize) and are most often found in their yellow form. More traditionally used in Mexican/Spanish cooking they lend themselves well to these style of flavours. They are a much more flavourful tortilla then the more commonly found wheat tortilla and stand up to sauce much better. Naturally gluten free they are a perfect and easy switch to keep everyone at your next dinner or taco party happy!
