    I find this to be a lot easier if you spread the beans onto the flour tortillas first then lay then into the 13 X 9 pan. They are more stable laying on a plate & spreading with beans then to lay them on top of more beans & try spreading. Just my thought. Thanks for recipe.

      Hi and thanks for the tips. I have also found several where there was issues. Never did get answer on a tube biscuit that was all dough after the cook time was up plus did add more time even. I saw somebody else had same question and got no answer. Was the one where u seperate the biscuits and put cheese and butter between and bake it in loaf pan. I did not try it again cause of wasting money and food. Thanks again.
