Easy Cheesy Mexican Lasagna

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by MomMakesDinner

This one is yummy and simple, and super fast too! My 2 year old calls it "nummy cheesy!" I consider it to be a home for any style of ingredients if you want chicken or green sauce or a different cheese it would still be fantastic. Enjoy!

I love the flavor of the stewed tomatoes in this! I had only one issue with the recipe as written, and that is that I did not have room for all the layers in my 9 inch pan. I ended up not using quite all the filling and skipping the top tortilla/cheese layer. Also, if I would have made the recipe as written, I count only 12 tortillas used rather than 16, but that's a very minor point. This was really quite good, and I'll keep this recipe to make again - but next time I will make the whole filling, then freeze half for use later, as this was a ton of food for my family. Made for PAC Spring '11.

  2. Brown ground beef in large skillet, then drain. Season meat with chili powder, salt and pepper, garlic powder and red pepper. Season to taste measurements are approximate.
