Beans and Barley Three-Cheese Enchilada Casserole

Enchilada sauce (see recipe below)
1 package (8 to 10) 10-inch corn or flour tortillas
2 diced fresh tomatoes plus 1/4 cup finely diced seeded tomato (divided)
1 bunch sliced green onions
1/2 C. sliced black olives
6 oz. grated cheddar cheese
6 oz. grated queso blanco cheese
6 oz. grated mozzarella cheese
1 large avocado (firm yet pliable to touch)
2 t. lime juice
1 t. minced, seeded jalapeno
pinch minced garlic
1/4 t. salt
pinch black pepper
1 to 2 T. coarsely chopped cilantro
sour cream for garnish

Prepare enchilada sauce. Cover bottom of 13 x 9-inch baking dish or 12-inch round baking dish with 1 cup of sauce.

Add about half of tortillas, overlapping slightly to completely cover pan. Combine cheeses in medium bowl. Remove about 1 1/2 cups of mixed cheeses; sprinkle over tortillas. Add about half of sliced green onions, half of 2 fresh diced tomatoes, and half of olives. Top with layer of remaining tortillas and remaining sauce.

Bake casserole, covered, at 350F. 25 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately add remaining cheese and vegetables. Bake uncovered another 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, make guacamole: Mash avocado until smooth. Add lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, salt, pepper, remaining 1/4 cup diced tomato and cilantro.

Remove casserole from oven; let set about 10 minutes. Serve garnished with sour cream and guacamole.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.
