  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir the ground beef with the onion in the hot skillet until completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes; drain any excess fat. Stir the black beans, chili powder, cumin, and salt to the beef mixture; cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Arrange the tortillas atop the beef mixture.
  3. Mix the tomatoes with green chile peppers and cream of mushroom soup together in a bowl; spread over the tortillas. Top with the Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and the cheese is melted completely, 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook the chili powder, cumin & salt with the ground beef to season the meat. Cut the tortillas into triangles and layer this casserole more like you would a lasagna. If you use flour tortillas...

I loved this recipe, I left out the beans. I used two cups of fat free cheese. Also I shredded up the tortillas. Next time I will only use 1 1/2 LB Hamb, use Mexican blend cheese and add 1/4...

Made this for dinner tonight, and it is delicious! The only thing I changed was that I added a can of whole kernel corn (drained) to the meat mixture. I'll definitely make this again!
