To assemble casserole, spread 1/2 cup blended tomatoes over the bottom of a 13 X 9 inch baking dish. Arrange 4 of the tortillas over the sauce. Top with half of the bean mixture, spreading evenly.

Combine the cheeses. Sprinkle 1 cup cheese over the beans. Spoon on about 1/3 of the remaining blended tomatoes. Top with 4 tortillas and the remaining bean mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese and half the remaining blended tomatoes.

Arrange remaining 4 tortillas over top and spoon on remaining blended tomatoes. Top with remaining cheese.

Bake 40 minutes or until casserole is bubbly and vegetables are tender. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
