    Geema's Note:

    This delicious casserole looks and cuts like a pie, revealing layers of beans and cheese and tomatoes. Make it up ahead of time if you want and just put it in the oven at dinner time. I like this made with pepper jack cheese too.

      This is a really good dish. Also has good potential for a make-ahead one. I did find that it takes longer than 40 minutes to bake, more like 60. Using flavoured toritillas (like spinich, tomatoe, whole wheat) makes a really beautiful dish. I also a tried a variation where I substituted chicken for the black beans. I just shredded cold roasted chicken with two forks, seasoned it with taco-type seasonings, and mixed it with the tomatoes etc. for those layers. This seemed to be more popular, than the vegetarian version, but I like it both ways.

      This was delicious! I used a round casserole dish to accomodate all 7 layers, red kidney beans (pinto aren't available here), home made salsa & 2 oz of green chilies which were left from another recipe. For cheese, I combined cheddar & some colby with diced jalapeno. Thanx Geema!

      Absolutely delicious, it went down a storm! Would probably also be good with meat. It felt like sacrilege mashing up the pinto beans, perhaps they would be better unmashed?
