Mexican Lasagna yummy

This amazing lasagna recipe with Tex-Mex flair is fantastic. This family favorite entree has a beef mixture that includes refried beans and chilies. The recipe is layered with noodles and cheese and has a salsa layer before adding sour cream, cheese, green onions, olives and tomatoes for the topping. It's perfect for company or holiday dinners like Cinco De Mayo.

I used these ingredients.

Brown 2 pounds of lean ground beef or sirloin in skillet. Drain off any grease. Add diced chilies, refried beans, taco seasoning, and 2 heaping tablespoonfuls of salsa and stir together.

Spray a 9×13″ glass baking dish heavily with cooking spray.
Spread at least one cup of beef mixture on bottom of the baking dish to prevent the noodles from sticking. 
Place 4 lasagna noodles over top. Spread one-third of the meat mixture over top of the noodles. Sprinkle with 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, Colby Jack or Monterey Jack cheese.
I just dabbed the meat on this layer and ended up using tons of meat on the last couple of layers.

This is a great lasagna but let me provide a few tips before making this so you can have a good outcome. It is crucial that you spread about a cup of the meat sauce on the bottom of a well greased baking dish before layering the noodles. Otherwise the noodles will stick to the bottom of the pan and you will have to use a chisel to get them out! 

  • 2 lbs. 93% or 96% lean ground beef
  • 16 oz. can refried beans
  • 4 oz. can chopped green chilies
  • 1 pkg. taco seasoning or Homemade Taco Seasoning
