Black Bean Tortilla Pie

Since I talk about it all the time, I thought I would give out the recipe to my favorite dish...the black bean tortilla pie. It comes straight out of the Great Food Fast cookbook put out by Martha Stewart Living. Its a hit at parties and makes great leftovers!

4 10 inch flour tortillas
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, diced
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cup water
1 package frozen corn
4 scallions thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use a springform pan or a round cake pan.

 2. Heat oil in pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stir occasionally, until onion is soft.

3. Add the beans and water, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until liquid is almost evaporated. Stir in corn and scallions and remove from heat.

4. Fit a tortilla in the bottom of your pan. Layer with 1/4 of the bean mixture and 1/2 cup cheese. Repeat 3 times but use 1 cup cheese on the top layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with scallions and slice into wedges.
