3cupsfiesta blend shredded cheese (divided)
2tbspchopped cilantro (optional garnish)

Preheat the oven to 375*.
Lay 2 of the flour tortillas into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Using a sharp knife, or a pizza cutter to trim the excess tortilla edges. Use the 2 trimmed tortillas as a pattern to trim the remaining 2 tortillas for the 2nd layer of the lasagna.
Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Set it aside.
Using a 3 - 4 quart saucepan over medium-high heat, add the ground beef, onion and minced garlic. Cook the ground beef until it is cooked through, and no longer pink. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
Using a small mixing bowl, whisk together the taco seasoning and 1 cup of water. Pour over the cooked ground beef. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until the meat mixture begins to thicken. Stir often. Remove from the heat.
Arrange 2 of the trimmed flour tortillas in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
Evenly spread ½ of the meat mixture on top of the tortillas.
Evenly spread ½ of the salsa over the meat mixture.
Evenly sprinkle ½ of the black beans over the salsa.
Evenly sprinkle ½ of the shredded cheese over the beans.
Arrange the last 2 tortillas over the shredded cheese, and repeat the final layers of ingredients.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, and garnish the chopped cilantro. Top with sour cream and pico de gallo. Serve while hot.
To Store: Store any leftovers tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days
To Freeze: You can freeze the uncooked lasagna for up to 2 months. Allow the lasagna to completely thaw, and cook according to directions.
To Reheat: To reheat a pan of lasagna from the refrigerator, let it sit on the counter for about an hour and bake according to directions.
I recommend letting the baked lasagna rest for at least 5-7 minutes before you try to slice it. This will help the layers hold together.
