Title: Bean Burrito Layers
Categories: Beans, Vegetarian, Mexican
Yield: 4 servings

1/2 c Green Lentils; dried 1 tb Chili Powder
1/4 c Pinto Beans; dried 1/4 c Coriander Leaves; chopped
1/4 c Red Kidney Beans; dried 6 oz Monterey Jack Cheese; grated
1/4 c Baby Lima Beans; dried 6 Flour Tortillas; 10"
1 Onion; medium 1 Tomato; medium, chopped
4 Garlic Cloves 1 Lettuce; shredded
2 Jalapeno Peppers * 1 Salsa
1 tb Oregano; dried

Servings: 4

Rinse lentils and beans, discarding any that look suspicious, and soak in
clean water 4 - 6 hours, or overnight. Put into medium saucepan, bring to
boil and simmer, covered, 30 minutes. Add water if necessary.

Peel and chop onion. Microwave on "High" 2 - 2 1/2 minutes until soft. [If
you prefer, you may saute the onion in about 2 T. oil. I omit the oil to
keep the fat content down. The flavour does not seem to suffer.] Chop the
Jalapena pepper. (*) Adjust the quantity to your own taste and / or
tolerance.

Peel and crush the garlic.

Drain the lentil-bean mixture. Reserve 1/2 cup of liquor. In a food
processor puree the lentil-bean mixture, the onion, the garlic, the
jalapena peppers, the oregano, the chile powder, and the coriander leaves,
adding some of the reserved liquor as necessary to process. [The final
puree should be quite thick.]

Pre-heat the oven to 325 F.

Assemble as follows on an oven-proof plate, pizza-pan or cookie-sheet:

Place a flour tortilla on the *lightly* greased surface. Cover with
lentil-bean puree [4 - 5 T.]. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese. Add
another flour tortilla and repeat, saving enough cheese to cover the top of
the final flour tortilla. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to "firm-up" for 5 - 10 minutes before serving.

Garnish with salsa, chopped tomato and shredded lettuce. Serve with rice,
Couscous and / or corn.

The amount of oregano, coriander leaves, chile powder, or jalapena peppers
may be varied to suit individual tastes. I use more peppers! If you're
prone to "problems" with beans, add 1/4 - 1/2 t. Hing [Hing is a mixture of
rice-flour, turmeric and asafoetida <ass-uh-fuh-TEE-duh> found in most
East-Indian specialty stores. It can significantly reduce flatulence.
