Taco Lasagna

(Sorry..bad picts! And YES we've been living off paper plates lately!)

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. green pepper. chopped
1/2 c. onion. chopped
2/3 c. water
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can Mexican diced tomatoes, don't drain
1 can refried beans
Flour Tortillas
2 c. Mexican Cheese blend

Sour Cream

Brown ground beef with green pepper and onion. Add water and taco seasoning, boil for 2 minutes. Then add black beans and tomatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes. In a greased 11 x 13" pan, layer enough tortillas to cover the bottom, refried beans, meat and cheese. Repeat layers. Then top with 2 tortillas and cheese. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve with sour cream and salsa.

We happen to have all the ingredients on hand for this recipe so I decided to try it. I don't know if I necessarily would have otherwise. It was pretty good I guess, nothing over the top. Although Mike really liked it. I just felt like it was missing something or it needed a little more zing.
