Slapdash Mexican casserole

The idea for this came to me when a friend mentioned he had breakfast casserole.
1 can black beans
1 can corn
1/2 can crushed tomatoes
1/2 jar salsa, any flavor or spiciness. Though I'm not sure how well mango salsa would taste.
Small bag of corn tortillas
8 oz bag of shredded yellow cheese - I like Colby
Green onions or cilantro as garnish
4 eggs
Cayenne pepper and chili powder to taste
Preheat oven to 375.
In a bowl, beat eggs and mix in salsa.  In a larger bowl, combine corn, beans, and half the tomato can.  Mix in the egg and salsa mixture. Add chili powder and cayenne pepper, if desired. I put about taespoon cayenne and a half tablespoon chili.
In an 8x8 pan, cover the bottom with a layer of tortillas. Pour 1/3 of the mixture on top. Cover liberally with cheese. Sprinkle on chopped greens. Repeat layering until pan is full ending on a cheese and greens layer.
Bake for forty five minutes covered with foil, or until egg solidifies.
