Tortilla Black Bean Casserole

This is a South Beach recipe that I got from my aunt a while ago. I've made it several times and REALLY love it. It's very "hearty" and nice to know you're not shoveling a ton of "bad carbs" in your body at the same time.

A full pan can feed 5-6 people easily. Sometimes we cut the recipe in half just for the two of us if we don't want a ton left over.

Tortilla Black Bean Casserole

1 chopped onion
1 1/2 c. chopped green pepper
14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes
3/4 c. picante
2 t. ground cumin
2 garlic cloves pressed
15 oz. can of black beans rinsed
12 6" tortillas
2 c. shredded monterey jack

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine onion, peppers, tomatoes, picante, cumin, & garlic. Bring to boil, simmer 10 minutes. Stir in beans. Spread 1/3 mix in baking dish, top with tortillas. add 1 c. of cheese, add 1/3 mix. Top with tortillas. Then rest of mix. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with rest of cheese. Let stand 10 minutes. Top with olives, tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream.
