Spray a 7” spring-form pan (or a 7” glass or metal casserole dish) with non-stick spray. Place 4 tortilla halves into the bottom of the prepared pan, overlapping them as needed. Top tortillas with 1/3 of the prepared meat mixture, repeating this step twice more to create three layers of tortillas and meat mixture; top with cheese. Cover casserole with a sheet of foil that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

Place trivet into the bottom of the pot; add 1 cup water. Place covered casserole onto a foil sling, then carefully use the sling to lower the pan into the pot, placing it onto the trivet. Fold ends of sling down over the top of the casserole.
