1 (4.5-oz.) can chopped green chiles
4 oz. (1 cup) shredded Mexican cheese blend
1 (10-oz.) can enchilada sauce
1 to 2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (from 11-oz. can), drained, seeded and chopped

Stir in green chiles and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Drain beef mixture. Add enchilada sauce, chipotle chiles, cumin and oregano; mix well. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Spread beef mixture in ungreased shallow 2-quart casserole. Top with corn. Spread potatoes evenly over corn. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
