  1. No measurements for this - make as little or as much as you want, with layers as thick or thin as you want.
  2. Base layer - canned pinto beans (drained) and chopped jalapeno: I used 2 cans beans and 2 seeded jalapenos, processed in food processor to a blend of chunky/creamy.
  3. Second layer - salsa spiced quinoa - quinoa cooked with dried and powdered "salsa flavors" added to the water: I used 1 cup quinoa to 1½ cups vegetable broth, I added ¼ teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, 2 teaspoons chili flakes, 1 teaspoon chili powder, bring to boil then simmer 25 minutes.
  4. Third layer - noocho cheese sauce / dip. Recipe follows.
  5. Fourth through seventh layers - layer the lettuce and scallions, then tomato, then avocado, then olives.
