How to make 30 Minute Mexican Lasagna
Prep your workspace by moving an oven rack to the middle and setting the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Mix taco seasoning and water (I like to throw some chicken bullion in as well, but this is optional). Bring to a boil in the microwave, about 2 minutes, then pour half the ‘taco sauce’ into your prepared pan to coat the bottom.
Next, place a single layer of tortillas on the bottom over the sauce. I like to rip mine in half, they fit easier with the placement show below.
Next, brown your Albertsons ground beef in a 12 inch skillet, adding a pinch of salt and pepper to season the meat. (I like to start this recipe with the ground beef, and do the steps above while it is cooking to save time!)
When it’s completely browned and cooked through, mix in an entire jar of corn & black bean tomato salsa and a small can of chopped green chiles. Remove from heat and set aside.
Now, spread an ENTIRE can of refried beans over your layer of tortillas.
Top with HALF the ground beef mixture.
Cover the ground beef mixture with another layer of tortillas.
Pour THE REST of the ‘taco sauce’ over the tortillas.
Cover with HALF the Mexican cheese blend.
Place THE REST of the ground beef mixture over the cheese.
Cover with one LAST layer of tortillas.
Cover the tortillas with THE REST of the cheese and then sprinkle the top with sliced black olives.
Place it into the oven to warm all the way through and melt the cheese, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, cut and serve with all the fixins, like fresh cilantro, sour cream, guacamole and even a lime wedge!
