Mexican Lasagna


Makes 6-8 Servings
Cost: $7.25



1 Package of Wheat Tortillas

1 lb of Ground Turkey or Diced up Chicken Breast
1 Package of Taco Seasoning
1 Can of Re-fried Beans
2-8oz Packages of Shredded Cheese-I use the Mexican Blend
1-Container of Salsa- I use the kind from the produce section, but you can use the kind in a jar.

Optional Toppings:
Jalapeno's
Sour Cream
Hot Sauce
Tomatoes
Salsa
Lettuce
Black Olives

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • In a skillet, brown your meat, and drain.
  • Add to the meat 1/4 Cup of water and the Taco Seasoning
  • Take a casserole dish, spray Pam, or oil the bottom.
  • Layer into the dish:
  • 2 Tortillas Side by side on the bottom
  • Then 1/2 the can of Beans
  • Then 1/2 the meat
  • Then 1/2 the salsa
  • Then 1 package of Cheese
  • Repeat this again
  • Bake at 375° approximately 30 min until cheese is melted and starts to brown.
Serve with whatever toppings you have, or like.

This makes a great Pot Luck dish or appetizer. If I serve this for guests, I like to put out the toppings in different dishes. It makes a nice presentation. I warn you though, if there is a lot of people, make 2 dishes of it...it is always gone FAST! Every time I bring it somewhere people love it, they can't believe how easy, and inexpensive it is to make. If I do this at home for dinner on a budget, I serve it with just some sour cream, and hot sauce. You can also double up the recipe for a larger dish or make more layers. Enjoy!
