In nonstick skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium-high heat, breaking up meat with wooden spoon, until meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add chili powder, oregano, salt and cayenne; cook for 2 minutes.

In large bowl, mash kidney beans; stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the salsa. Add beef mixture; stir to blend.

Place 1 tortilla on rimmed baking sheet; spread one-third of the beef mixture right to edge of tortilla then sprinkle with one-quarter of the cheese. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining tortilla and cheese.

Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven until cheese is melted, 10 minutes. Slice into wedges; top with sour cream, lettuce and remaining salsa.
