Mexican Stack-Up #RSC


  • 1poblano pepper
  • Reynolds Wrap Foil
  • 2tablespoons olive oil
  • 4green onions, sliced thinly
  • 4garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 1⁄2lbs ground beef
  • 3 1⁄2-4tablespoons taco seasoning mix, to your taste
  • 1pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1cup canned black beans, drained
  • 2⁄3cup corn kernel, fresh
  • 8ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1⁄3cup chicken stock
  • 2tablespoons chives
  • 1tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 8corn tortillas
  • 1 1⁄2cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 1⁄2cups monterey jack cheese, grated
  • Garnishes
  • sour cream
  • green onion, sliced
  • black olives, sliced
  • jalapeno, sliced


  • Preheat broiler to high broil. Set the rack 6 inches from the heating element. Place the poblano pepper on a baking sheet and broil for 4 minutes on each side, or until the skin is blistered and rising up.Watch closely so you don’t scorch your pepper. Remove from the oven and place the poblano pepper on a sheet of Reynold’s Wrap aluminum foil and wrap loosely to allow the pepper to steam for 10 minutes.
  • Turn the broiler off and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium heat. Add the green onions and cook for 1 minute, then add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Drain all grease from the pan, using a paper towel to soak up any extra grease.
  • While the onions and meat are cooking, remove the poblano from the Reynold’s Wrap aluminum foil and let cool a bit. Peel the skin from the poblano and dice.
  • Add the chicken stock, taco seasoning, cayenne pepper, diced poblano peppers, black beans, corn, cilantro, cream cheese and chives to the skillet. Cook while stirring until it is creamy. Taste and add salt and pepper as you feel is needed. Remove from heat.
  • Choose a casserole dish that is at least 2 1/2 inches to 3 inches deep and can hold 2 stacks of 5 inch corn tortillas. Otherwise, you can make two separate casserole dishes. Spray with oil and place 2 corn tortillas (making 2 stacks!) in the casserole dish. Spread 1/4th of the meat mixture on top of the two tortillas. Top with 1/4 of the cheese. Repeat this step 3 times, ending with cheese.
  • Loosely tent your casserole dish with Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil. Use no stick Reynolds Aluminum Foil if you are afraid your cheese will attach to the aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove the Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes. Let the dish sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

    What a great alternative to tacos or enchiladas. We really enjoyed this and made it twice last week.

    Whole family raved! Definitely not quick, but extremely easy and delicious. As I have posted before, I have one son who is very picky about Tex-Mex dishes. He loves the flavors but detests the ‘sameness’ of so many of them. He gave this one two thumbs up and asked to take the leftovers with him. Huge compliment from a guy with a very discerning palate, Breezermom!!

    This was a great movie-night dinner! Quick to make, filling and tasty. I loved the cream cheese in the meat mixture, and DH loved that it had corn tortillas instead of the typical flour ones. Sorry, I didn’t get a photo because DH wanted to eat this while it was still all hot and melty (and he wanted to start the movie, lol). Definitely a keeper for Tex-Mex nights, thanks for posting!

    We really enjoyed this tasty and hearty meal, breezermom. All the flavors and textures blended together so well…just perfect. Thank you for posting.

    Soooo good! I left out the cilantro but otherwise made as directed. DH is disappointed that I’m holding off on serving up the leftovers tonight.
