  • 1 can (15oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 2 eggs

Coat a 9 by 13 baking dish with non-stick spray and set aside.

Brown ground beef, drain. Add corn, tomato sauce, salsa and taco seasoning; simmer, stirring frequently for 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine eggs, cottage cheese and oregano.

Line the bottom with 5 tortillas, overlapping edges. Top with half of the meat mixture, spoon cottage cheese mixture on top of meat; repeat steps lining tortillas, meat and cheese mixture. Add any remaining meat on top and layer with shredded cheese.
