Predictably, it’s not a real torte. Not sweet, not made from crumbs. Worst of all, I have no idea of the progeny of this dish. It just began showing up in our kitchen and plopped onto our list of simple comfort foods.

1 (28 ounce) can of black beans, drained

1 jalapeno chile

3-4 anchovies

3-5 flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Chop jalapeno and anchovies in a food processor. Add black beans and puree.

Cook in a large skillet over for about 5 minutes, or until bean mix darkens and thickens.

Grease a half sheet pan and lay down a tortilla. Spread bean mix to cover, and add another tortilla. Repeat until bean mix is gone and there’s a tortilla on top.

Bake in 400-degree over for about 15 minutes, until top is golden to brown.

Remove from oven, let torte rest for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with sour cream and salsa.

    Green green coffee bean extract for weight loss is used to suppress asthma attacks as it
    also helps to boost your metabolic rate and burns calories.

    One study combined green green coffee bean extract for weight loss with blood thinners, as their effectiveness may be decreased.
