onion, dried flakes
Crumble ground beef in a 2 quart glass dish.
Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Drain excess fat.
(I use a plastic colander).
Stir into meat mixture the onion, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, tomato sauce and water.
Microwave on 70% power for 5 minutes.
In a 2 quart round casserole, alternate layers of 1 tortilla, 1/6 of meat sauce, and 1/6 of cheese, making a torte like casserole.
The last layer should be cheese.
Cover and microwave at 70% power until torte is bubbly hot and cheese is melted (about 5 mintues).
