Title: Tortilla Casserole

Servings: 4 (if you go on their website you can change the number of servings

Total Time: 45 min. - Baking Time: 15 min. - Prep. Time: 30 min.

This Vegetarian casserole is like a Mexican Lasagna, with layers of flour tortilla (instead of lasagna noodles), salsa (instead of tomato sauce), pinto beans (instead of meat sauce), and Monterey Jack cheese (instead of Mozzarella).

vegetable cooking spray
1/2 cup onion - chopped
1 clove garlic - minced
15 ounces pinto beans - canned, drained
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1/4 cup salsa
4 ounces green chiles - chopped and drained
4 8 inch tortillas
3/4 cup Monterey jack cheese - shredded
2 cups lettuce - shredded
3/4 cup tomato - chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium high heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute until tender. Stir in beans, cumin, and chili powder. Reduce heat; cook 5 minutes or until bean mixture is a thick paste, mashing beans with a wooden spoon. Stir in chili sauce; set aside.

Combine salsa and green chiles in a small bowl. Stir well; set aside.

Coat a medium sized casserole dish with cooking spray. Place a tortilla in dish. Spread one third of bean mixture over tortilla. Top bean mixture with one third of the salsa mixture and one third of the cheese.

Repeat two more times. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Serve with shredded lettuce and fresh tomatoes.
