This is a great recipe when you are really really busy and/or really really lazy. Or you’re a writer and spent most of your day in la la land and are having a difficult time coming down to earth. It’s modified from the fabulous Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Vegetarian.
Preheat oven to 400. Rub a 9×12 baking dish with olive oil. Dump jar of salsa in pan (roasted is nice). Spread. Spoon one drained jar of black beans and one drained jar of pinto beans into the pan. Cut one inch cubes of monterey jack (or cheddar cheese). Sprinkle in pan. Cut up half an onion, sprinkle in pan (optional). Salt and pepper. Crush corn tortilla chips and sprinkle on top. A little shredded cheese is nice too. Drizzle some olive oil on top. Cook for twenty to thirty minutes until golden. Scoop on mounds of fresh cleaned spinach. Dollops of sour cream and those cheap black olives are nice garnishes.
Why is this so great for lazy people? You don’t have to roll tortillas and you don’t have to chop anything especially if skip the onion and buy pre-cubed cheese. The most challenging thing is opening the salsa jar. Oh, and crushing the chips. But that’s just plain fun.
