Tortilla-Black Bean Casserole

Tortilla-Black Bean Casserole
Recipe By : Real Food for Real PeopleServing Size : 12
Preparation Method:

-2 cups Onion -- chopped
1 1/2 cups Green Pepper -- chopped
14 1/2 ounces Tomatoes, canned -- chopped, not drained
3/4 cup Salsa
4 ounces Jalapenos -- chopped
4 cloves Garlic -- minced
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
30 ounces Kidney Beans -- black/red, drained
12 6 inch Corn Tortillas
2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese -- shredded
2 medium Tomatoes -- sliced
2 cups Lettuce -- shredded
1/8 cup Green Onion -- sliced
1/8 cup Black Olives -- sliced
1/2 cup Sour Cream -- optional

In a large skilled, combine onion, green pepper, undrained tomatoes, salsa, jalapenos, garlic and cumin. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in beans.

In a 13" x 9" x 2" baking dish, spread 1/3 of the bean mixture over the bottom of the pan. Top with half of the tortillas, overlapping as necessary, and half of the cheese. Add another 1/3 of the bean mixture, then remaining tortillas and bean mixture.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and let stand 10 minutes. Top with tomato slices, lettuce, green onion, and olives. Cut into squares to serve. Serve with sour cream or yogurt.

Additional information: This recipe is also great with substitutions. Try flour tortillas for corn tortillas and add chopped vegetables, such as celery and carrots when sautéing onion. You can also cut the amount of cheese in half or use soy-based cheese and no one will ever notice!
