Judging from the variety of comments and suggestions, this is a really versatile recipe for something that looks like a fever dream from Taco Bell. I'd swap one of the black bean layers for a beef layer or maybe mix the beef and beans together. For ease of release, I'm wondering if using a springform pan might be the way to go. I think this would be good as well with either flour or corn tortillas, and I'm probably going to give it a try both ways.

I really liked this. I substituted refried beans for the guacamole. I used a little round casserole dish instead of a cake pan.

I'm going to try this.. not sure about the guacamole being hot, but I have eaten a hot guacamole dip with jalapenos so this may be good. )

I'm not sure I understand, ambrit where do you read "hot guacamole?" I must've missed something.

Does anyone else think that cooking the guacamole sounds weird? I just don't think I'd like hot guac. How about serving it on the side or with a dollop on top of each serving? And add the ground beef as others have suggested as the layer instead of guacamole. Sounds delicious.

I also like these other verisions

I would use the ground beef layer like JanCanCook, but I would mix it with the taco seasoning. Now, this recipe looks delicious, BUT how do you get it out of the cake pan onto a plate?

I actually make it with ground beef (instread of black beans), complete with all the toppings, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced ripe olives, jalapeno peppers sliced, mexican blend shredded cheese on top.... & it's our evening meal.

Great idea, this is exactly what I had in mind while I was reading the original recipe.

I use some minced beef and a little garlic along with a 1/2 tin of beans, it is really good, thank you. I have also shared a recipe ar eat, cook,share, which I named tortillas with a difference..

yumm ... I think I'll try your recipe except Im going to use deep fried corn tortillas instead of flour ... more like a Tostada ....

A bit of shredded rotisserie chicken might be nice, as well.

I actually don't care for black beans but found this recipe to be quite good. I would substitute corn tortillas, as the flour ones tend to become slimy and gummy.

Joyaluk: Thanks for catching that! We've now updated the recipe with the correct ingredient list.

I presume the recipe is for 8 "inch" tortillas, not 8 "ounce"

Sorry, I don't have a weight problem. I love to eat healthy.

MMM Love black beans...They are soooo good.
