    Default Layered Fiesta Casserole

    Makes: 6 servings

    1 lb. extra-lean ground beef
    1 green pepper, chopped
    1 red pepper, chopped
    1 jar (16 oz.) TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick 'N Chunky Salsa
    1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
    1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen corn, thawed
    12 corn tortillas (6 inch)
    1-1/2 cups KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided

    HEAT oven to 375°F.

    BROWN meat with peppers in large skillet; drain. Return to skillet. Stir in salsa, tomatoes and corn.

    SPREAD 1 cup meat mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with 6 tortillas, overlapping as necessary. Cover with layers of half each of the remaining meat mixture and cheese; top with remaining tortillas and meat mixture. Cover with foil.

    BAKE 25 to 30 min. or until heated through. Top with remaining cheese; let stand 5 min. or until melted.

    Make Ahead: Assemble casserole as directed. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake at 375°F for 40 to 45 min. or until heated through. Top with cheese; continue as directed.

    Makeover - How We Did It: Save 60 calories and 9 g of fat, including 4 g of saturated fat, per serving by using extra-lean ground beef instead of 80% lean ground beef and reduced fat Cheddar cheese instead of full-fat Cheddar.
