How To Make Lasagna Mexican Style

After you brown your meat, add your Taco Seasoning. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside for a few minutes.


You’ll also add some diced green chilies to the Refried Beans.  Add some mild salsa as well.

Spread a light layer of beans on the bottom of your baking dish. Start layering with some halved taco size tortillas.

Layer one complete!

Spread another light layer of beans over tortillas.

Top with taco meat.

Top with your salsa rice.

Repeat all layers again.

When layers are complete, top with shredded cheddar cheese.

Ahhhh, perfect!

Ready for the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes.



Top with chopped fresh cilantro before serving. Cut into squares to serve. Look at those fabulous layers! Enjoy!
