Mexican Lasagna

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.

  • 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.)
  • 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.
