1medium zucchini, grated
1can 19-ounce black beans, rinsed

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat a 9×13 casserole dish with cooking spray.  

Heat oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add onion, stirring often, until it starts turning brown, about 5 minutes.  Stir in zucchini, beans, tomatoes, corn, cumin, chicken, and salt. Cook stirring occasionally, until vegetables are heated through, about 3 minutes.

Scatter half the tortillas on the bottom of prepared dish. Top with half of the vegetable-chicken mixture, enchilada sauces, & cheese. Repeat with another layer of tortillas, vegetable-chicken mixture, sauces & cheese. Cover with foil.

Bake casserole for 15 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking until the casserole is bubbling around the edges and cheese is melted; about 10 minutes more.

Omit the chicken for a vegetarian dish!
