Mexican Lasagna

In honor of the upcoming Salsa Fest, here's a quick recipe that you can top with some salsa.

It's easy, you only dirty 3 dishes in the process and it has cheese and salsa. Good stuff.

You'll need:
corn tortillas - I did 3 layers and used 9 total but you can do 2 layers and use 6, and you could try flour tortillas instead of corn
1 can of refried beans
2 lbs ground hamburger or turkey meat
1 package of taco seasoning
2 1/2 cups mexican cheese - shredded, I used the mix bag that has like 4 different kinds of cheese
sour cream - optional
sliced avocado or quacamole - optional

That's it.

Brown the ground meat, drain and add the packet of taco seasoning and follow the instructions on the packet. Then put a layer of tortillas in a 9x13 pan, top with 1/3 refried beans, top that with 1/3 of the meat then sprinkle some cheese over it.

Steps for Mexican Lasagna

Serve with you favorite toppings. We had onion, sour cream and salsa on hand so that's all we used. If avocados weren't so expensive right now, they'd be on there too.

And there's plenty for leftovers for lunch or to freeze for a quick dinner again.

  7. This is one of my favorite recipes, only I pour on a can of enchilada sauce over everything before putting on the final layer of cheese. It makes everything gooier. So good!
