If using tomato sauce, prepare with some spices and seasonings that suit you. A little chili powder, salt, and diced bell peppers such should make it more exciting! No need to heat it, unless you want to heat up the bell peppers into the sauce to better spread flavor. Green chilies would work here too!
Add a little of the enchilada or tomato sauce (the sauce) to the bottom of the bowl. This is mostly so the tortilla doesn't want to stick!
Add a corn tortilla, flat in the bottom of your Pyrex bowl. It might be slightly larger than the bowl. These are usually naturally oil-free, and are shelf stable for a long time.
Layer refried beans (I do mine in clumps), rice, salsa, peppers, and more sauce. Add plant-based cheese or sauce in each layer, if desired.
Add another corn tortilla and repeat until the bowl is filled. I like to end with a corn tortilla on top, so things don't stick to the lid.
When time to eat, heat 4-6 minutes in the microwave. This is thick and heavy, so it takes awhile to heat. Bowl will be hot when removing from microwave.
Top with plant-based shredded cheese and sour cream!
