Number of Servings: 4


    Corn Tortillas, 9 tortilla, medium (approx 6" dia)
    Tomatoes, red, ripe, canned, whole, no salt added, 1 can
    Newman's Own All Natural Chunky Medium Salsa, 16 tbsp
    Onions, raw, 1 large
    Garlic, 6 cloves
    Cilantro, raw, 16 tbsp
    Colby and Monterey Jack Cheese shredded, 0.75 cup
    Chili Powder 1 T
    Ground Cumin 1 T
    Oregano 1/2-1 T
    Basil 1/2-1 T
    3/8 t thyme


Heat oven to 350. Puree tomatoes, and cook with basil, thyme and oregano. Pour a layer of tomato sauce into a deep baking pan (a nine inch cake pan works fine). Next, make a mixture of grated cheese, chopped or grated onions, cumin and chili powder to taste. Back to the pan- layer corn tortillas on top of the sauce. Put the cheese mixture on the tortillas, add salsa and chopped cilantro, repeat until cheese is used up, or pan is full, or you get bored, or the doorbell rings. Put this mixture in the oven for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Also, when done, the tortillas should form a pasta like texture and taste. Serve with black beans and low fat sour cream.
