1Preheat the oven at 425*f and grease a small rectangular baking dish. I used 6"x4" dish.
2Hear oil in pan. Add garlic and onions and sauté for a minute if fresh and few seconds if using dried. Add refried beans paste, 1-2 tbsp salsa, cumin powder. Add 1/4 cup water and cook for 4-5 minutes on low flame.
3Heat the tortillas in microwave for 15-20 seconds or heat them lightly in a pan on stove top.
4Now start layering. Sprinkle the warm tortillas with 1/2 tsp cheese shreds. Add 1 tbsp bean paste towards one side leaving some margin to roll. Top with few sashes of hot sauce.
5Roll the tortillas slightly tight. Arrange it on greased dish with seam side down. Repeat with other tortillas till the dish is full.
6Put it in the oven on the lower rack. Let it bake for 10-12 minutes till it starts turning golden brown.
