My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe. I halved the recipe, and used fire roasted diced tomatoes and ranch style beans instead of black beans.

We really enjoyed this meal. I used diced tomatoes with chipotle peppers, and I think that really kicked up the flavor. I've never used corn tortillas in a recipe like this, and we really liked how it tasted.

You use corn tortillas in this recipe. It's kind of a lasagna style, and I think the flour would be difficult to slice. Also, corn tortillas are healthier.
