tostada lasagna - the non-colombian dish of the week

i deviated from the colombian menu for one easy meal on a rainy day. just felt like something a bit different. so still latin themed.

the ingredients
big can tomato sauce
1.5 c onion - chopped
can refried beans
1 tsp ground oregano
2 tsps ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
can black beans, rinsed and drained
small can sliced black olives, drained and chopped
1/2 c jalapenos sliced (i used herder)
10 - 12 chipotle tostadas or flavour of choice broken into big pieces (enough to line the baking dish - i think mine is 11x13 - dunno for sure
2c cubed mozzarella cheese
1/2c tex mex shredded cheese mix.

grease baking dish
then add just enough tomato sauce to line bottom
in a bowl blend all the ingredients except for the olives cheese and black beans (save a few jalapenos for the top)
after tomato sauce create a layer with the tostada pieces, then the mix in the bowl

tostada pieces, mix in the bowl, 1/2 the black beans and olives, cheese pieces

tostada pieces, rest of the mix in the bowl, rest of black beans, olives and jalapenos

add rest of cheese including shredded

bake at 375 for about 30 min or until cheese looks slightly browned.

easy, and tasty. you can serve guacamole or sour cream on side or have as is with a side salad.
i froze the leftovers for another week.
