For the person looking for the 3-layer tortilla and black bean recipe -- Is
this it?  

Tortilla Black Bean Casserole    Serves 6

In a skillet:
2 cups chopped onion (or to taste)		
1 ½ cups chopped green pepper
2 cloves garlic (minced)			
1   14 ½ oz can tomatoes, cut up
3/4 cup picante sauce				
2 tsp ground cumin

2  15 oz cans black beans or kidney beans, drained and rinsed	
12   6 inch corn tortillas
8 oz shredded fat free cheese (cheddar OK)			
2 medium tomatoes, chopped 
2 cups shredded lettuce (optional)				
1 cup fatfree sour cream (optional)

Saute the onion, pepper, garlic, tomatoes, picante and cumin until lightly
cooked. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in beans.

In a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan (smaller works OK, too): Spread 1/3 of the bean
mixture over the bottom. Top with ½ the tortillas, overlap as necessary, and
½ the cheese.  Add another 1/3 of the bean mixture, then remaining tortillas
and bean mixture.  Cover and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.  Sprinkle with
remaining cheese.  Pass the chopped fresh tomatoes, lettuce, and ff sour
cream at the table for individual toppings.
