1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
2 teaspoons hot chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups prepared reduced-sodium salsa (such as Muir Glen Organic or Green Mountain Gringo)

Heat oven to 375 degrees . Coat a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Line the prepared baking dish with 2 of the tortillas. Cut a third tortilla into pieces, and use some of the pieces to completely cover bottom of dish. In a medium-size bowl, coarsely mash the beans and stir in 1 cup of the salsa. Spoon mixture evenly over the tortillas in the baking dish. Sprinkle 2/3 cup of the cheese over the top.
Place another layer of tortillas (and tortilla pieces) over beans and cheese. Evenly spoon beef mixture over tortillas. Sprinkle with 2/3 cup of the cheese. Place the remaining tortillas over the beef and cheese layer. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup salsa and the rest of the cheese.
