Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large sheet pan with foil or spray it with non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  2. Heat a saute pan on medium to high heat, add the olive oil, let it heat up, then add the onions. Cook for about 2 minutes then add the vegan chicken and cook until golden brown. Mix in the thawed corn and cook for another minute, remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Lay the tortilla chips out on the sheet pan. It's ok to have the chips layered on top of each other. Take the refried beans and smoothly spread them out across the top of the chips.
  4. Add the cooked chicken mixture across the top of the tortillas evenly, then distribute the black beans over the chicken mixture. Sprinkle the cheese evenly across the top of the beans. Put the pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  5. Remove from the oven and top with salsa, avocado, cilantro and jalapeño. Could also add vegan sour cream and green onions. Try not to eat the whole pan!
