Taco Lasagna

I bought some taco seasoning when I picked up groceries last week. I really had no idea what I was going to make with it at first. I decided to make a Taco lasagna, using tortillas instead of noodles and salsa and taco seasoning instead of pasta sauce.

It ended up being very delicious!

Here are my ingredients.

I began by browning the ground beef with the onions in the microwave until the beef was browned and the juices ran clear before draining it.

Next I added about a cup of diced tomatoes to the meat.

I spooned about a quarter cup of salsa into the bottom of the baking pan I was using before putting my first layer of tortilla on top of it. I cut the tortillas to fit into the corners of the pan.

I spread half the can of refried beans over the tortilla layer.

Next came a layer of half the ground beef mixture, topped with about half a cup of salsa.

And finally some grated cheese before repeating the layers, ending with grated cheese.

I baked it uncovered at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, until the cheese was melted and the top was nice and brown.

And then cut it into squares before serving.

  1. Aren’t you clever!!! This will also make good leftovers since there’s nothing crunchy to get soggy. It’s already all cooked together.
    As you can tell I’m all about leftovers! I like to cook but I hate to have to “fix something” just because it’s time to eat. Anytime there’s a yummy leftover or something (ideally homemade) in the freezer it’s a win.

    • It would make good use of leftovers and we love making Mexican food a lot!! I actually hate leftovers of most things for some reason but lucky for the boys I don’t eat any meat anyways so they still get to enjoy various ways of remaking them!
      I love to cook extra of whatever I’m making for quick meals if I’m having a bad head day or just don’t feel like cooking!!
