Mexican Lasagna

Share Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This Pin This

We all have purposes in life. This lasagna is why God created me, I'm sure of it. The size of this lasagna is outrageous, and will last a few days for the two of us. I'm still confident that it'll last a family of 4 at least two meals. It's all my favorite things all thrown into my amazing corningware.

I highly recommend it — both the lasagna and the corningware.

Ingredients:
  • Prepared Spanish rice 
  • Black beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • Taco seasoning
  • 1 large can refried beans
  • 1 pack of tortillas (larger the better)
  • Mexican cheese (be generous — I used a medium bag of shredded Mexican cheese)
  • Taco sauce (I used a total of 2 bottles of Taco Bell taco sauce, which are $1 each)
  • Any toppings (oregano, sour cream, salsa, etc.)
Directions:
  • Prepare Spanish rice according to previous blog. If you don't have the time or desire to make it from scratch, grab 2 or 3 packages of microwaveable Spanish rice. Add the drained black beans to prepared rice.
  • Cook ground beef over medium high heat on the stove
  • Drain and add taco seasoning
  • Pour canned refried beans in a pan over medium heat. Add some taco sauce, taco seasoning, stir and let it warm up.
  • Grab a 13x9 baking dish and pour 1/2 cup of the taco sauce on the bottom of the baking dish and spread with a spoon.
  • Top with first layer of tortillas
    • The ones that I bought were so big that I had to cut them in half to use. Don't be afraid to tear and arrange the tortillas so that they fit.
  • Layer with all the rice/bean mixture
  • Top with half the bag of cheese
  • Layer with tortillas
  • Spread the refried beans over second layer of tortillas
  • Pour 1 bottle of taco sauce over refried beans
  • Spread all the meat over the taco sauce
  • Add the corn and spread evenly
  • Top with another layer of tortillas
  • Cover with remaining half bag of cheese
  • Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes
  • Serve with your favorite toppings and tortilla chips
That's it! The only real efforts come with the ground beef and rice. Everything else is practically made for you. So I have faith that you can do this!

Love and lasagna,
Racquel. Or whatever.
