Frugal and very tasty! These are really good leftover too. Serve with sour cream & guacamole for a delicious dinner!

Cook rice, add black beans & liquid to the rice. Heat some olive oil in a skillet & add the onion, green pepper, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt & pepper. Stir fry until vegetables are soft. Add to beans & rice along with tomato, olives & salsa. Roll each tortilla in the enchilada sauce. Place 1/2 c. of rice mixture in each tortilla, roll, and place in a 13x9 baking pan. Do this with each tortilla, fitting them snugly in the pan. Pour any remaining sauce and cheese on top. (Remaining filling can be poked into the ends.) Bake at 350* for 25-30 min. until bubbling.
