      Title: Bean burrito layers
 Categories: Beans, Vegetarian, Mexican
      Yield: 4 Servings
    1/2 c  Green Lentils; dried
    1/4 c  Pinto Beans; dried
    1/4 c  Red Kidney Beans; dried
    1/4 c  Baby Lima Beans; dried
      1    Onion; medium
      4    Garlic Cloves
      2    Jalapeno Peppers *
      1 tb Oregano; dried
      1 tb Chili Powder
    1/4 c  Coriander Leaves; chopped
      6 oz Monterey Jack Cheese; grated
      6    Flour Tortillas; 10"
      1    Tomato; medium, chopped
      1    Lettuce; shredded
      1    Salsa
  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
  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
   found in most East-Indian specialty stores.  It
  can significantly reduce flatulence.
