Mix everything around, turn your burner on Low, and let it simmer for 15:00. Take out at least a 9’’ round baking dish, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and add 1 Whole Wheat Tortilla on the bottom of it. On top of your tortilla put half of your mix, 1/2 Cup (122g) Black Beans, and 1/2 Cup (56g) Mexican Style Cheese. Add your last 1 Whole Wheat Tortilla  on top of that layer, the rest of your mix, 1/2 Cup (122g) Black Beans, 8 Tablespoons (122g) Salsa, and 1/2 Cup (56g) Mexican Style Cheese. Bake on 350/176 for 25:00. Mouthgasm!
