Layered like a casserole, this Mexican-inspired casserole will stun your taste buds by pairing the richly caramelized flavor of roasted sweet potatoes with the spice of fresh salsa and just a touch of melted cheese.
- 2 large or 3 medium tomatoes, cubed
- 1 large onion, peeled and quartered
- 2 jalapeño peppers, cleaned and halved
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
- 2 medium garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 canned chile en adobo, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 15 small corn tortillas
- 2 (15 ounce) cans no salt added black beans, rinsed and drained
- 4 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup part-skim shredded cheese
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
- Preheat oven to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit. Combine tomatoes, onion and jalapeños. Toss with 1 tablespoons vegetable oil and salt. Roast until tomatoes are soft and juicy and onions and peppers begin to brown, about 30 minutes.
- Toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tablespoon oil, cumin, chile powder and coriander. Roast until soft and browned, about 20 minutes.
- Lower oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. Puree roasted tomatoes, onions, and jalapeños and garlic until smooth. Add chipotle, vinegar and blend again. Set salsa aside. Toast tortillas until just crisp.
- In a large lasagna pan, spread a thin layer of salsa. Break 1/3 of tortillas into large pieces and distribute over salsa. Sprinkle half the sweet potatoes, half the black beans and half the green onions over tortillas. Repeat layers, sprinkling the final layer with cheese.
- Cover baking dish with foil. Bake until chilaquiles are hot and cheese has melted, about 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake until top layer of cheese is browned, about 15 minutes. Serve with avocado, cilantro and lime.

It’s back to school season. That means it’s time to stock up on new gear, so your students are prepared to start the school year in style. Don’t forget about school lunch as you create your shopping lists. Whether your family has decided between school lunch or lunch from home, there will likely be a field trip where your child could use these lunch supplies. Parents have a lot of cool new products to choose from to ensure that their child’s lunch is not only nutritious and safe, but also looks appetizing at lunch time. For this month’s Nutritious Nudge, I created a list of lunch supplies and considerations to help parents with their back to school shopping.
