…and it even fits your macros

Cooking Instructions:

1. Chop all vegetables into smaller pieces.

2. Add vegetables, canned tomatoes, water and spices to large pan and simmer on medium-high until vegetables are cooked and liquid had evaporated.

3. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray 9×13 pan with oil.

4. To assemble start with 2 tortillas on the bottom, spread 1/2 refried beans, 1/3 vegetables and 1/2 cottage cheese across wraps. Add 2 more wraps on top and layer 1/2 refried beans, 1/3 vegetables and 1/2 cottage cheese. Finish with last 2 tortillas, remaining 1/3 vegetables and cheese.

5. Place a baking sheet underneath pan to catch any spillage as the pan will be very full. I didn’t have any leakage, but better safe.

6. Bake for 50 minutes until cheese is well melted and sides are bubbling.
