Mexican Lasagna

Yummy goodness

Today I made one of my hubby’s favorite dishes, Mexican Lasagna.  He said it tasted perfect.  I thought this was a recipe my sister gave me, but after talking to her I guess it wasn’t.  I don’t know where I got the recipe from but I’ll post it on here for anyone interested.

Mexican Lasagna
2 T of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
½ of a red onion diced up
2 #’s of hamburger
1-1/2 C of frozen corn
2-1/2 to 3 C of medium salsa
1 can of black beans
2 T of chili powder
2 t of cumin
2-4 C of your desired flavor of shredded cheese
1 package of 8” tortillas cut in halves.
Handful of scallions or spinach leaves

First layer of tortillas (there's a layer of meat mixture underneath)

First brown up your hamburger then drain grease and put meat back in pan with diced up onion, and spices with the EVOO for approximately 5-7 minutes between medium to high heat. After you’ve cooked that for the duration, go ahead and add the corn, salsa, and black beans until heated throughout.  Next go ahead and put a layer of the meat mixture on the bottom of your 9X13 pan then a layer of cheese and lastly a layer of tortillas.  Repeat another time and finish off with your last layer of cheese and sprinkle on top with scallions or spinach leaves for color.  Enjoy!

Beef, corn, black beans, salsa mixture

Next sprinkle the cheese

Last layer includes leaves of spinach for color

Cooked until the cheese is melted and browned
