Mexican Lasagna

What you need: 

10-15 flour tortillas (I like whole wheat)
2 16 oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 to 1 12 oz. container vegan sour cream (I like Tofutti brand sour supreme)
1/2 large cooking onion, finely chopped
2 green bell peppers, finely chopped
1 to 2 red or yellow bell peppers, finely chopped
a few hot peppers (optional), diced
2 portabella mushrooms, finely chopped
3 to 4 cloves garlic (or more) minced
1 packet vegan taco seasoning
chili powder (optional)
salt and pepper
olive oil (for cooking veggies)
hot sauce (optional)

What you do: 

Heat oil in large frying pan or wok. Add onion, garlic, and peppers and cook on medium heat until they begin to soften. Add mushroom and continue cooking until veggies are tender and there is some liquid in pan. While cooking, add chili powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
While veggies are cooking, mash up black beans with back of fork or potato masher until pasty. Some whole beans can still be present. Add sour supreme by large spoonfuls and mix with beans until mixture is creamy. You may use 1/2 whole container depending how creamy you like it. Add taco seasoning to bean sour supreme mixture and stir until thoroughly combined. If you really like spice, add a little hot sauce.
Grease the bottom of a 9x13 inch casserole dish and arrange tortillas so that entire bottom of dish is covered. Tortillas can overlap, but feel free to cut them to fit. Spoon out half of cooked veggies and spread them on top of tortillas. Trying not to use liquidy part. Arrange another layer of tortillas on top of veggies and spread bean sour supreme mixture on top. Arrange another layer of tortillas and pour remaining veggies and cooking liquid on top. Using the liquidy part of the cooked veggies for the last layer allows it to seep down and flavor the whole casserole. Arrange a final layer of tortillas for top of casserole.
Place in oven and bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Allowing casserole to cool for a few minutes before cutting will make it much easier to cut.

I am shocked no one has commented on this recipe. It's really good!! I don't cook with oil, so when I did the veggies in the pan, I use small amounts of water instead. Because I didn't have much liquid in the veggies, I put a small can of Rotel on that top layer and a little Vegan cheddar cheese. I can't wait to have my boyfriend try it. He too, will love it. Thank you for the recipe!
