    Ingredients

    • 1 cup (165g) raw unsalted cashews (See NOTES below for subs and lower-fat option)
    • 1 cup (240g) mild heat runny/not too chunky salsa (I love Trader Joe's or Sprouts Mild, you can use a medium heat if you don't mind the dish being on the spicy side, not recommended with kids)

    • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (75g) water
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons smoked paprika
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
    • 3/4-1 teaspoon (6g) fine sea salt (this will vary depending on the salsa used. Start with 3/4 and keep in mind the final taste after baked you want to stand out)
    • 9 small corn tortillas, cut into fourths
    • 2 15 oz cans low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1 cup (240g) salsa for middle layer

    • Optional: Green onions for garnish
