How to cook
Gather and portion all ingredients.
Cut off the stem side of the onion and the skin. With the knife parallel to the cutting board, cut the onion in half, leaving the root side intact.
Slice thin strips across the onion, then chop perpendicularly to create the dice.
Smash, remove the skin, and roughly dice the garlic.
Set oven to 375 °F
Begin to brown the beef and drain fat off if you prefer. Add the chopped onion and garlic after a few minutes and saute until translucent.
Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the beef, add the chopped green chilis, black beans, and frozen corn.
Stir half of the cheese and all of the tater tots into the beef mixture.
Coat the bottom of the baking pan with a layer of enchiliada sauce, pour the tater tot and beef mixture into the baking pan, and top with the rest of the enchilada sauce.
Bake in the 375 °F oven for 40 minutes.
Remove the casserole from the oven and top with the rest of the shredded cheese. Put back into the oven and bake for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
Remove from the oven and it is ready to serve!
