Mexican Food Recipe: Beef 'n' Bean Torta


1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 can (15 ounces) pinto or black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 drops hot pepper sauce
4 flour tortillas (8 inches)
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
Minced fresh cilantro, optional
Salsa, sour cream, shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes, optional


Cut four 20x3-in. strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on the bottom and up the sides of a 5-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray.
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, olives, chili powder, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce. Spoon about 1-2/3 cups into prepared slow cooker; top with one tortilla and 1/4 cup cheese. Repeat layers three times.
Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until heated through. Using foil strips as handles, remove the tortilla stack to a platter. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with salsa, sour cream, lettuce and tomatoes if desired.
