Mexican Lasagna

Mexican food is my weakness.  Anything with cheese, beans, Mexican spices and heat is my go to meal.  Mexican Lasagna is my way to use up tortillas and create a great meal … snack… lunch…

Mexican Lasagna

Step 1:

Prepare ground turkey by cooking until no longer pink and add the taco seasoning according to package directions.  I use the low sodium version.

Step 3:

Layer white corn tortillas on the bottom of the baking dish.  I use an oval dish – but a square 8×8 or 9×9 pan can be used too.

Spread a layer of refried beans over the tortillas.

Add a layer of cheese and a drizzle of salsa.  I like to use the green salsa verde, but use your favorite salsa or taco sauce.

Repeat three more times.  When complete, heat in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes; or until the cheese has melted and the dish is bubbly.

I serve with fresh tomatoes, avocado and a little more salsa.
