Kale and Sweet Potato Tortilla Pie

Remember the kale, sweet potato, and white bean enchiladas I made a while back? I wanted to make them again, but I only had small tortillas. Then I remembered a recipe on my "to try" list for Tortilla Pie from Martha Stewart.Time to improvise!

6 ribs of kale, leaves removed and coarsely chopped
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped into 1/2 pieces
1 can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
5-6 green onions, sliced and separated
1 C grated cheese
1/2 tsp garlic
1 tsp cumin

Place the sweet potato in a pot of water, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, put the chopped kale leaves in a steamer basket on top of the pot. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the kale has softened and turned bright green and the sweet potatoes are tender. Drain. Combine sweet potato, kale, beans, and whites of the onion in a large bowl. Stir, mashing the potatoes and beans a little as you go. Stir in 3/4 Cups the cheese, garlic, and cumin. 

Place a flour tortilla on a baking sheet and top evenly with veggie mixture. Top with another tortilla, and repeat the layering. Finish with a layer of veggies topped with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese. Bake at 400` for about 20 minutes, and top with the greens of the onions. Serve with sour cream.
