8 ounces tomato sauce
cup water

(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).
