Let's Make It
Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
Very lightly spray four .25 quart mini Dutch ovens with cooking spray and set aside. In a medium bowl combine corn kernels, black beans, jalapeño, diced tomatoes, and cilantro leaves. Mix briefly to combine.
Layer the bottom of each mini Dutch oven with about 1/3 cup of lightly crushed tortilla chips. Add ¼ cup salsa over the tortilla chip layer, followed by the corn/black bean/tomato mixture. Press down lightly on the solids. Add another ¼ cup salsa to each mini Dutch oven, layer with tortilla chips, and top with cheese.
Place in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese has melted and salsa bubbles slightly. Remove from the oven. Garnish with chopped cilantro, diced tomatoes, and jalapeños if desired.
Breakfast casserole filling can be prepared one day in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use. In the morning, quickly layer the mini Dutch ovens and pop in the oven.
Sprinkle cilantro, tomato, and jalapeño garnish over cheese and bake it with the casserole instead of serving it raw.
For a heartier dish, mix the salsa with cooked shredded chicken or top with a fried egg.
Substitute POLLY-O Shredded Mozzarella Cheese for the Mexican Style Cheese.
