Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

I saw this on one of my favorite food blogs, Let's Dish, and decided that it would be a fun dish to try! I changed up the recipe slightly based on what we had on hand and cooked it in a spring form pan for easy removal. This was actually even better as leftovers, the flavors really melded together in the fridge. You can tailor this recipe however you like, adding in your favorite ingredients, which makes it a great last minute meal!

1/2 lb ground beef
Taco seasoning
1can refried beans
1 cup salsa
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 can black beans, drained
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
7 8-inch flour tortillas
2 cups Mexican shredded cheese
Black olives, chopped tomatoes, sliced green onions for garnish.

In a large skillet, brown ground beef, add taco seasoning and cook according to directions. Stir in refried beans and salsa, and cook to warm the mixture.

In a medium bowl, combine red onion, black beans and cilantro.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a spring form cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place a tortilla in the bottom of the pan. Spread some of the beef mixture over the tortilla, sprinkle with cheese, top with the second tortilla. Spread the black bean mixture, sprinkle with cheese, top with the third tortilla. Continue, alternating beef and bean mixtures until you reach the last tortilla. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes.

Remove pan from oven, remove foil and top tortilla with cheese and sliced black olives. Bake, uncovered, for 5 more minutes.

Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly, slice and serve.
