Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!
This Tex-Mex Mexican Lasagna recipe might be just what you need for a change out of your normal weeknight-dinner-rut! My friend Misty was actually sweet enough to make the recipe and then share it with us here today- I tried out the leftovers before snapping a picture this morning and they were oh-s0 good. (Nothing like Mexican Lasagna for breakfast, right?) 😉
My mother-in-law made a similar recipe for these years ago and I'd forgotten all about it, but when I saw the sales ad at Publix this week I knew it was worth trying out. Here's the recipe so you can treat your family too!
- 2 packets taco seasoning
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1/2 cup water
- 18 6 " corn or flour tortillas we used flour tortillas
- 1 jar salsa
- 1 cup sliced green onions
- 1 16 oz container sour cream
- 1 1/2 cups Monterey Jack Cheese
- 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Brown ground beef in skillet over medium high heat until browned.
- Drain beef, then add taco seasoning, garlic and water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Place 6 tortillas into greased baking dish.
- Then spread a third of the salsa on top of the tortillas.
- Spread half of the meat over the salsa.
