This Tortilla Torte is easy to make and fun to serve. Present the basic torte hot from the oven and pass the salsa, green onion-flavored sour cream and guacamole. Each person slices off a wedge and tops it with his or her choice of accompaniments.
Large (10-inch) flour tortillas are layered with taco-flavored ground beef, black beans, whole kernel corn, sliced olives and cheese.
I used a 10-inch springform pan to layer and bake the torte in. Use the bottom metal base from the springform pan as a guide to cut the tortillas to fit the pan. When heated, simply unlatch and place the torte, still on the removable base, on a board or serving platter. If you don’t have a springform pan, just use a greased shallow baking pan or if you use smaller 8-inch tortillas, you can heat them in a pie pan.
You can add whatever extras you like to the meat or the bean layers.
