  • Heat the oil in a skillet over moderate heat and saute the onion, bell pepper, and garlic until tender but not brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Puree the tomatoes with their liquid in an electric blender or food processor until it is fairly smooth but still contains some chunks.
  • Stir the tomatoes and seasonings into the skillet and bring to a boil.
  • Stir in the black beans and chicken, return to a boil, and remove from the heat.
  • Layer 1/3 of the mixture into a lightly greased baking dish.
  • Top with 4 tortillas and 1/4 (about 1 cup, 250 ml) of the cheese.
  • Repeat, finishing with a layer of the bean mixture.
  • You should have about half the cheese remaining.
  • Bake covered in a preheated 350F (180C) oven for 40 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake uncovered until bubbly, about 10 minutes.
  • Garnish as desired.
