Awesome recipe! I make this a lot at my house! It's a great dish to play around with whatever you have on hand! Great served with spanish rice. This is my take on a Rachel Ray recipe! Enjoy!
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
1 (14 ounce) can tomatoes and green chilies, diced
1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope taco seasoning
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup bell pepper, diced
2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese or 2 1/2 cups mexican blend cheese, shredded
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 (8 inch) package spinach tortillas, cut in half
1. Brown ground beef with onions and peppers in a large skillet over medium high heat.
2. Add beans, tomatoes, taco seasoning and water to skillet and stir to combine.
3. Place half of meat mixture in a greased 13x9 casserole baking dish. The layers will go as follows starting with meat on bottom: meat, cheese, tortillas, and cheese. Then repeat again: meat, cheese, tortillas, and cheese (making sure last layer is cheese. **the cheese sort of acts as a glue keeping the layers together better**.
4. Bake 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees until bubbly. Garnish casserole with chopped green onions.
