Bean and Corn Tortilla Lasagna with Avocado

This Bean & Corn Tortilla Lasagna with Avocado is from ed&bv. And, despite having a long name - and also somewhat of a long list of ingredients - this recipe is in fact quite simple and easy to make!
So, I thought I'd show you a couple of prep pictures to demonstrate just how effortless this dish is to make. (as a side note, this dish is a heck of a lot easier to put together than this post - blogger has deleted my entire text twice already - arggh!)

Begin by getting all of your ingredients ready, and having your pantry essentials on hand (can of tomato sauce, can of black or pinto beans, corn tortillas). Combine the tomato sauce with the onion, garlic, spice blend and beans, as pictured. Ladle about 1/2 of this mixture into your baking dish, and then cover that layer with about 1/2 of your corn tortillas (you can cut them in strips, or in semi-circles, as I have done here). (By the way, I use this Que Pasa brand of tortillas, and they are usually found refrigerated, but sometimes frozen.) Next... the magic! The layer of sliced avocado, corn kernels and lime juice/salt. Don't omit the lime juice, guys. Not only does it help preserve the color of the avocado, it adds acidity which enhances the flavor of that avocado/corn layer. The remaining corn tortillas are layered on top, followed by the remaining tomato sauce mix.

Finally, for a crunchy contract, a small amount of crushed tortilla chips are scattered over top. A sprinkling of vegan cheese can also be added, but is optional. Be sure to serve individuals portions with a wedge or two of limes. That squeeze of fresh lime juice truly brings the flavors to life. Also, if you are a cilantro lover, give your piece of lasagna some herbaceous love!

You may just find after making this casserole that you love the layer with the heated avocado. If so, add more avocado the next time... if not, simply omit it and serve your tortilla lasagna with guacamole. (try the Guacamole Con Alga Marina, p. 61).

Oh... how could I forget?! A salad is a must with this dish... with some crunchy, cool veggies like cukes, or jicama, or sweet bell peppers. Whatever you use, be sure to drizzle it with Cumin-Cinnamon Vinaigrette (p.80). Make it earlier in the day, or even a couple of days before, if you plan your meals in advance. That dressing is one of my favorites, and it's just waiting to be paired with this casserole!

That dish is definitely worth the long title - it's FABULOUS!! :0)

Katy said...

I loved this lasagna! It was pretty quick and easy to put together, and it tastes wonderful!

VegMomma said...

Oh this dish has been a hit with everyone I serve it to... I've brought it to potlucks, served it at dinner parties, and gobbled it up myself. It is so so good.

I have been meaning to make this dish, Dreena! Thanks for the photos and explanation.

Paulina said...

This is my favorite dish out of ED&BV. In fact, I just made it today for a potluck dinner.

beastmomma said...

I made this dish, but I had to substitute the avocado with peppers. It seems like like avocado is what makes the dish!

Carrie™ said...

I was looking at this recipe and am even more interested in trying it now. Great photos.

LK said...

Wow, this looks wonderful. I love avocado, and having it warmed with some Mexican spices and tomatoes sounds delectable! Pairing it with a crisp salad and cumin vinaigrette sounds refreshing. I really wish I had that cookbook!

Urban Vegan said...

Leave it to Dreena.

I love lasagna and I love Mexican. Gotta try this one!

I made this a couple weeks ago and I switched around the recipe a bit too much and it didn't look to hot, but it tasted GREAT! Next time I will be following the recipe more closely. The omni hubby didn't even know I used pepperjack almond cheese -- SHHH!

The Veg Next Door said...

Love, love the Cumin-Cinnamon Vinaigrette.

Janessa said...

Oh my goodness--this looks delicious! I will for sure have to try it out this coming week.

The Voracious Vegan said...

Oh wow. Wow. WOW. You just made a recipe that includes nearly all of my favorite things. I will definitely be making this sometime soon.

Animal-Friendly said...

I cannot wait to make this dish- it looks fabulous! And besides, anything with lots of avocado must be amazing :)

Ilana said...

This looks delicious, I'll absolutely have to try it. Since I went fully vegan (finally) I've really developed a solid obsessive love for avocados.

Dreena said...

Didn't realize this was such a fave for so many of you... excellent!!

(and beastmomma, yes, I don't know if I'd love it without the avocado... I do think it makes the dish in a way)

Thanks guys. :)

DreamQueen said...

This is one of my favourites too - and it's good for blowing omnis' minds about what they're missing out on by not being vegan (in my experience).

Lisa Mizrahi said...

I've made this dish about 5 times so far and it has become my go-to recipe for lasagne. Even my husband, who's as picky an eater as they come, loved this. My sister is still raving about this dish weeks later.

Dark Faerie said...

I have made a Mexican Lasagna very similar to this and we LOVE it....I will have to give your version a go. Anything with avocado is a must me!!!!

Katie said...

How tasty! I love anything with beans and avocados.

KristieS said...

I finally made this a couple nights ago and LOVED it! I've had the recipe bookmarked ever since you posted it, so when my best friend gave me ED&BV recently, I knew this would be the first recipe I tried. I didn't put avocado on the kids half, but my husband and I loved it on ours. This will definitely be made again soon! Thanks Dreena!
