Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, green pepper, and garlic; cook and stir 3 minutes or until tender.
In large bowl, combine onion mixture, rice, beans and olives. In medium bowl, combine 2 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese, ricotta cheese, sour cream and chili powder; mix well.
Spread half of rice mixture in greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Top with half of cheese mixture; spread evenly over rice. Drizzle with half of salsa. Repeat layers.
Bake 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Bake 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
