Baja Lasagna

This is a recipe that I did in school. It is super yummy and I haven't made it in forever! I think that I might have to make it this week!

20 small corn tortillas
2 T oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion small diced
1 lb pork shredded
40 oz tomato sauce
1 T cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper*
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 cups refried beans
8 oz green chile chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese grated

grease the 12 ramkins with oil and cut out rounds of tortilla that fit the ramkins.** Saute the garlic and onion in 1 T oil, add the shredded pork. Cook for about 5 minutes. combine the tomato sauce, salt and pepper and green chile, cumin and cayenne and simmer for about ten minutes. Layer the tortilla with the pork mixture and top with cheese and another layer of tortilla, then top that layer with refried beans and cheese then another tortilla. Rotate pork and beans everyother layer. Bake at 350` for about 15 minutes. Use a knoife around the edges and flip out of the ramkin onto the serving platter. Serve hot with a corn and black bean salsa, or rice with chips.

*add more or less depending on your preference of heat, or you could sub jalapenos for the green chiles
** If you don't want to do individuals you could just make this in one dish like a traditional lasagna and it would take less time to prep.
