Spread with half of the remaining bean mixture (1/4 total) over the tortillas. Sprinkle with one cup of the cheese, then arrange remaining 6 tortillas on top. Spread remaining bean mixture (1/4 total). Coat one side of a piece of foil with cooking spray, and cover dish with sprayed side toward casserole.

    I just usually spice to taste, so it's kind of hard to write it down. I like things spicy too. I was trying to keep the bottom line (no pun intended) down when it came to the calories - thus no rice. You could always put it on top of some rice and count the additional. Thanks for rating!
