Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna

1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped or pressed
1 cup chopped bell pepper
1 zucchini, chopped
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes or 2 tomatoes diced
1 can corn or 3/4 cup frozen corn
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 – 2 cups shredded cheddar or mexican cheese
salt & pepper
3-6 flour tortillas

Stir-fry onions, peppers, and garlic in frying pan with olive oil over medium high heat. Add zucchini, black beans, tomatoes, and corn. Add spices. Add 1/4 c – 1/2 c water to the pan. Once onions, peppers, and zucchini are soft and all ingredients are warm, remove from heat.
In pie pan, layer flour tortilla, vegetable mixture, and cheese. Repeat until all ingredients are used and top with cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and slightly browned, about 15 – 20 minutes.
To serve, slice like a pie and top with guacamole or sour cream.

I adapted this recipe from a vegan cookbook that I have. The original recipe did not have quite as many ingredients, and also omitted the cheese (obv.) The beans make this recipe filling. Also makes great leftovers.
