Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cooking until softened.

Add ground beef, breaking it apart with a spoon, and cook until browned.
Stir in salt, black pepper, chili powder, and cumin.
Add black beans, diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Stir to combine and simmer for 10 minutes.
Preheat your Dutch oven by placing 12 coals underneath and 16 on top.
Place a layer of tortillas on the bottom of the preheated Dutch oven, tearing them if necessary to fit.
Spoon a layer of the beef mixture over the tortillas, then sprinkle with cheese. Repeat layers, ending with a layer of cheese on top.
