"Do not overcook this dish. Most seafoods...should be simply threatened with heat and then celebrated with joy."--Jeff Smith, The Frugal Gourmet

1 can (14-ounces) black beans
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 head iceberg lettuce
1 tomato
1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
4 flour tortillas, each about 10 inches in diameter
1/2 cup sliced black olives

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Open the can of beans & drain the liquid in sink. Set aside.
