Mexican Lasagna

I love easy recipes. LOVE. This is a recipe I make pretty often. Even my husband, who is the pickiest eater EVER, loves it! Score.

Mexican Lasagna

So, here we go. Mexican Lasagna!
*Please note that you can add your favorite taco-ish ingredients into this recipe.
Let's just say my style of cooking is more... kid friendly (?)...

Tortillas - 12 small or 4-6 large, flour or corn
1 can enchilada sauce
1 can refried beans
Hamburger - cooked, drained & seasoned with taco seasoning
Any other ingredients you normally enjoy on tacos:
olives, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole, onions, etc.

Mexican Lasagna

1. Pour small amount of enchilada sauce in 9x13 pan so the tortillas won't stick. 
2. Layer 6 small tortillas in pan, covering the enchilada sauce.

3. Next, layer on refried beans, taco meat, cheese, then enchilada sauce. This is also when you would add other taco-ish ingredients.

4. Do one more layer of tortillas, beans, meat, cheese & sauce.
5. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes, adding a few more minutes if cheese isn't completely melted.

6. Cut, serve and enjoy!!

**I have also made this recipe with changes: flour tortillas (halved, 3 whole for each layer), chicken instead of beef, and added cooked rice to refried beans, sauce and cheese - DELICIOUS!!**

  4. An easy lasagne!! Great!

    Just stopped by to let you know that I featured your laptop cover on my round tuit post this week! Yours was the most clicked on link of the week!
    I sat down to make myself on of the covers the other day,but found my laptop has little sticky out bits where it closes, so your cover would have covered those. Bugger!! I'd started cutting- so I made myself a bag instead! Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Saw this post at the link party over on I Heart Naptime. This looks PERFECT for my family. I swear, we'd eat Mexican food every night if it wouldn't cause us to gain 10 lbs! =) We LOVE it and this will definitely get made this week as I have some leftover tortillas calling my name! =)

  13. This sounds so good! Would you come over to my link party tomorrow and share your recipes with us at Cast Party Wednesday?
    I hope to see you there!

  14. Saw you posted this last week, and I put it on our menu calendar for tonight. Anyway, mine turned out slightly too spicy for my little guy (15 months old) but was perfect me and my husband! I did it a little differently than you described, only because I didn't have everything I needed. I'd love to post my version on my blog and link back to you. What do you think?


    PS... I didn't even realize I cooked TWO of your recipes in the past 24 hours! When the recipes come in, I bookmark them, and at the time, I didn't pay attention to where they were coming from. Only when I started to cook tonight, did I discover it was once again your idea I was following!

  15. I am definitely going to try this one. With three kids that all have their fussy moments it's great to find a recipe that is a bit more kid friendly! :)

  16. This sounds so yummy and I can't wait to try it out!! Thanks!! Found you through Nap Time Crafters Link Party.

  17. Thanks everyone! Nancy, of course you can post it! Link back, I would love to check it out :)

  18. oh wow, that looks looovely!! I might try that today. Thanks for the inspiration!
