Mexican Lasagne

Kim Miller Recipe

By Kim Miller canadiancook

I really enjoy flavorful dishes, and this one is spot on. The tortillas and the sauce and cheese meld together like a lasagne does. I use El Pato Tomato Sauce - which I discovered at Save-alot, in the spanish aisle. They come in 7 oz cans. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large saucepan, add 2 tbsp of olive oil, and heat, add the pico de galo and saute. When the onions are becoming a bit translucent, add the ground beef.
2
Next while the beef mixture is sauteeing, add the cumin, red pepper, parsley, salt and pepper.
3
On an oblong baking pan (11 x 14) add a couple dashs of olive oil, and add about 1/4 of one of the can's of tomato sauce, and add to the bottom of the pan, and try to spread out the sauce a little.
4
Add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of beef mixture into the tortilla. Add more to the edge, so you can roll up the tortilla easily. I put my large burrito's horizontally, and then with the extra space, I did one vertically, and then cut the end of the burrito so it fit nicely in the pan.
5
Using almost all the remaining tomato sauce - cover the tortillas. (save some of the sauce for leftovers) Cover the tortillas with the cheddar cheese.
6
To save time, in the same pan you cooked the ground beef in, saute the frozen pepper mixture and add the wine and saute for a few minutes.
7
Add the saute pepper mixture on to the tortillas. I added the peppers to the center of the pan to make it look nice, but you can spread it over the entire pan if you prefer
8
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream and sliced black olives.
