  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 10 inch round cake pan or springform pan.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, mix black beans, pinto beans, refried beans, olives, corn, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Season with cumin, chili power, and black pepper. Cook and stir until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Lay one tortilla flat on the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Spread 1/4 of the bean mixture on the tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese lightly over the bean mixture. Repeat layering, ending with a tortilla. Top with remaining Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve with salsa and sour cream for garnish.

Oh my WOW!!!! This was fantastic! I didn't have a deep round cake pan, so I used two shallow ones and 6 tortillas (instead of 5). THIS WAS SOOOOOO GOOD! I had a vegan friend over so I substi...

This had no taste whatsoever and was just plain bland. Won't be making this one again.

This recipe is now a staple in our home. Sometimes I cut the tortillas into quaters and just layer them in a square dish. It works just as well. My husband said, "This tastes just like Taco B...

This is really good. I made this for my Mom and my really picky sister. Both of them loved it. The filling can also be used for burritos. I had enough filling to do two pie tins. Also, try and l...
