Mexilicious Lasagna :)

This dish was quite a hit at my house last night.  I had a girls' night last night and needed to throw something together for the boys for dinner, and this is what I came up with!

Straight from my brain to your computer screen...


Tortillas- about 6 fajita sized (whole wheat or flour)
Shredded Cheese- (a combo of pepper jack and sharp cheddar is super yummy)
Your favorite salsa (i think fresh is best!)
Ground Turkey (or beef or chicken)
1 packet taco seasoning
1 tsp ground chipotle chili or 1 tbsp adobo sauce (more if you like heat, or non at all if you don't...up to you!)
1 can black beans
1 can mexi-corn
1 handful french fried onions **the secret weapon**


Preheat oven to 375.

Brown ground turkey (or beef or chicken) and add taco seasoning and ground chipotle chili (or adobo sauce).  Once cooked thru, add black beans and corn to heat thru.

Spray a baking dish with nonstick spray.

Place a layer of tortillas on bottom, then layer salsa (very thin layer so lasagna does not become soupy) cheese, meat mixture & REPEAT the layering until your baking dish is full. The last and top layers should be tortilla-french fried onions-cheese.

Bake 20 minutes or until cheese bubbly and beginning to brown.

Make it look pretty!!

Serve each slice drizzled with melted queso, a dollop of sour cream (if you like it- NOT me), fresh cilantro, and sliced jalapeno (if you can take the heat!).

DELICIOUS! EASY! Makes for great leftovers, too! (im eating it for lunch as i type this up)

...i didn't take a picture. bummer.
