Stir in the salt, taco seasoning mix, canned tomatoes, and beans and cook until warmed through, about one more minute.
In a medium bowl, whisk to combine the green enchilada sauce, yogurt, and lime juice.
Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread ½ cup of the sauce mixture on the bottom of the pan. Layer on four of the corn tortillas, using two of the halves to line the sides. Next layer on half of the meat mixture, ½ cup of the sauce, and ½ cup of cheese. Repeat, layering the tortillas, meat, sauce, and topping the mixture with the remaining cheese.
Bake for 40 minutes, uncovered until bubbly. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped cilantro and avocado (optional)
