4 (10-inch) flour tortillas
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pound extra-lean (90 percent fat-free) ground beef
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 cup green salsa
6 ounces grated pepper Jack


Preheat oven to 450°F. Place a skillet over high heat. Mist tortillas with cooking spray and toast in skillet, turning once, until golden, 1 minute.

Warm oil in skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 4 minutes. Stir in garlic, spices and salt; cook for 1 minute. Add beef and sauté, breaking into small pieces, until cooked, 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce, reduce heat and simmer until most of liquid has evaporated, 7 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Place a tortilla on a baking sheet misted with cooking spray. Spread with one-third each of beef mixture, salsa and cheese. Repeat with 2 more layers of tortillas, beef, salsa and cheese. Top with remaining tortilla; press to adhere. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
