  • Spread 1/2 of the remaining picante sace on top of tortillas then sprinkle with the amount of cheese you desire.

  • One more time the tortillas, (Skip the picante sauce), cheese, bean and meat mixture.
  • Put last layer of tortillas on spread the last 1/2 of picante sauce on and put cheese on the top (I usually use a 1 pound bag just for the topping).
