Larry's Favorite Dressing

Cook ground round, onion, and garlic in a skillet until browned, drain off fat. Add chili powder and salt. Set aside and keep warm. While meat is cooking combine beans with liquid in a saucepan and heat. In a heavy skillet heat 1/4 cup canola oil over medium heat. When hot, fry tortillas, one at a time, just until they start to brown, on each side. Drain on paper towels.
For each serving: Tear a tortilla in pieces and place on a dinner plate. Layer as follows: meat, beans, tomato, lettuce, and cheese. Serve immediately with LARRY'S FAVORITE DRESSING.
