HG FYI: Poblano peppers are sometimes labeled as pasilla peppers. Good to know!


Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Break string cheese into thirds and place in a blender or food processor -- blend at high speed until shredded. (Or pull into shreds and roughly chop.)

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add corn, bell pepper, tomatillo, and poblano pepper. Cook and stir until slightly blackened and softened, about 6 minutes.

Lay tortilla on the baking sheet and bake until slightly crispy, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, thoroughly mix black beans, tomato sauce, and seasonings.

Flip tortilla and spread with bean mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with both cheeses, and top with cooked veggies.

Bake until cheese has melted and tortilla is crisp, about 5 minutes. Slice and eat!
