  • 1 lbs ground beef or any meat you prefer
  • 1 pack taco seasoning mix
  • cup water
  • 6 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 can 16 ounces refried beans
  • 1 can 15 ounces black beans drained
  • 1 med tomato chopped
  • 1 can 2 1/4 ounces sliced black olives drained
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 large avocado chopped
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup green onions chopped


  • Brown ground beef in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Drain fat, if desired. Stir in seasoning mix and water. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Place 2 of the tortillas, side-by-side, on a cutting board. Layer each tortilla with 1/4 each of the refried beans, beef mixture, black beans, tomato, olives, cheese, avocado, sour cream and green onions, spreading toppings towards the outer edge of tortillas. Top each with a tortilla. Repeat layers, ending with a tortilla. Serve immediately. Or wrap tortes with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To serve, warm tortes slightly in the microwave. Slice into wedges with a serrated knife. Serve with salsa, if desired.
