Tortilla Lasagn

Toasting the tortillas before building the lasagna keeps them from getting soggy as the dish bakes.
Feel free to mix things up with different beans, cheeses, or vegetables between the layers.

Serves 8

6 8-inch fat-free flour tortillas
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped (1 cup)
2 Tbs. chili powder
2 tsp. ancho chile powder
