Dairy-free, Oil-free Tortilla Casserole

I found this recipe in the book: Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure by Caldwell B. Esselstyn.

It is called Tortilla Pie, which we changed the name to Tortilla Casserole and added a few more ingredents. It is so quick and simple to put together with whatever ingredients you have on hand.

Tortilla Casserole

6 no-oil Corn tortillas
1 can fat-free refried beans
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 pkg frogen corn
1 jar salsa
1 onion diced
1 bell pepper diced
3-4 cloves garlic smashed
1 tomato chopped
1 can black olives
jalepeno chopped

Saute onion, bell pepper and garlic in a bit of water. In a casserole dish layer: 2-tortillas refried beans, sprinkle some of the black beans, some of the corn, some of the salsa, some of the sauted veggies. Repeat layers until all are used. Top with chopped tomato. Bake for 60 minutes at 360 degrees. Sprinkle top with black olives, cilantro and jalepeno pepper.
