First ever recipe post!!!

I've always loved coming here for recipe ideas or questions, but now I can finally post something!  My mom and I just moved to a new place, and we finally made our first real meal in it.  The idea came from a friend of hers and my sweet mom was nice enough to try to make it veganized.  It's basically just a burrito made into a lasagna.

We used a casserole dish that ended up being perfect because it was the exact size of the tortillas.  Here's how the layers went, from bottom to top:
Start with a bottom tortilla (after greasing the pan)
black beans with some shredded cheese (we used follow your heart which my very omnivore mother even said was decent enough)
refried beans
rice cooked with a little bit of lime juice and cilantro (gives it a delicious smell)
black beans and refried beans mixed together
technically, you should just have each layer be a separate ingredient, but it was getting to tall.
we baked it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (which was a complete guess) and then let it broil for a couple minutes to melt the cheese on top.  (I actually broiled it too long because I was playing with my kitty and forgot to pay attention, but it was still good, just a little crispy.)

We topped it with tofutti sour cream and some salsa and had some fresh snap peas on the side, and it was uber-yummy!  I've never had much faith in vegan cheese, but my mom saw it at the store and decided to give it a try.  You couldn't really taste the cheese, but just got a little hint of it.

And if I knew how to put pictures on, I would post one!  It actually turned out kinda pretty!
