I love quick and easy casseroles, I grew up eating them. This one is made up of stuff you probably already have on hand. The recipe comes from my Betty Crocker cookbook.
You don't need much for this one, so preheat your oven and lets get some ingredients. You need cheese, corn tortillas, salsa, garlic, onion, black beans, diced tomato, cumin, and a green pepper. I cut this recipe in half because Tom does not like beans.
Chop up your pepper.
Chop up your onion.
Now it is time to cook. In a large pan combine the pepper, onion, tomato, salsa, cumin and garlic. Bring this to boiling then reduce the heat to simmer for about 10 minutes.
Look at all the pretty colors!
Stir in the beans.
Spread 1/3 of the mixture into a baking dish.
Put in a layer of tortillas and add some cheese. You really want to use corn tortillas because flour tortillas tend to get gummy when baked in a casserole like this.
Put in some more of the bean mixture, another layer of tortillas then top with the remaining bean mix.
Bake it for about a half an hour and then sprinkle on some cheese and let it stand for a few minutes until the cheese melts. Or if you are like me and have no patience, put it back in the oven for a few minutes.
I topped it with a little bit of sour cream and was ready to eat. You can add some lettuce, tomato or olive on the top also for some crunch.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
