Original recipe yields 6 servings



  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.

My husband and I loved this dish. Would suggest using a 9x13 inch dish and reducing the layers to three, and using rectangular tortillas. Used Pepper Jack cheese. Also, think it might stay in the oven a bit longer so it is hotter. I will definitely make again.



This was good and easy. However, I'm a big fan of spicy dishes and found this to be slightly bland. Would definately add more spices, perhaps chipolte peppers, to the bean mixture and maybe a layer of salsa inside the pie. Some fresh cilantro would be good too. And the recipes really serves just 4.

I get 8 inch tortillas and then bake in an 8 inch cake pan. Works out great!
