    Tortilla-Bean Casserole


    Recipe Description
    A casserole of beans or beans and chicken in a mexican-esque sauce.
    Preparation Steps:
    preheat oven to 350 F.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    15 minutes to make, 30 to bake.
    Ingredients:
    1 T oil
    1 onion, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 T cumin
    2 (14 oz) cans of chopped tomatoes
    2 cans of kidney or black beans, drained and rinsed OR 1 can of beans and 1 1/2 c chicken, chopped.
    3/4 c salsa
    6-8 flour tortillas
    2 c shredded cheese (cheddar, mont jack, etc)

    taco style trimmings of your choice
    Serves:
    8
    Directions:
    In a large saucepan, onions in oil until translucent. Add garlic and cook for about a minute. Add cumin, tomatoes, salsa, beans (and chicken if applicable). Bring to boil and simmer for a few minutes to meld the flavors. Adjust the seasoning to your taste.

    In a 9x13" pan, place 1/3 of bean mixture and cover with half of the tortillas. Cover the tortillas with another 1/3 of the bean mixture and top with half of the cheese. Cover the cheese with the rest of the tortillas. Top with the remaining bean mixture. Bake in oven until piping hot (about 30 minutes). Remove from oven and top with the remaining cheese. Serve with taco-style fixings (sour cream, cilantro, limes, whatever you prefer).

    Thanks ladies. It's a really forgiving recipe, just taste it and adjust the seasonings for your taste and throw it together.

    I just saw this post at the bottom (in similar threads) of another thread.

    This would be really good with my homemade tortillas, I bet.
