Mexican Lasagna

Dianna Champlain


Just made this up last night everyone really enjoyed it. I did the no-boil version. You could cook your noodles first and it won't have to bake as long. I just like the texture when you don't cook them first.

This Mexican lasagna is a fantastic twist. It's comfort food with a south of the border twist. It tastes like tacos with all the fixings except there are noodles instead of tortillas. Lasagna can be labor intensive but using no-boil noodles takes away one step. Super flavorful, this hearty dinner is layered with black beans, corn, tomatoes with green chilies, salsa, cheese sauce, and shredded cheese. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Mexican Lasagna


  1. Cook meat and drain grease.
  2. Add seasoning mix to cooked meat. Then add black beans, corn, and diced tomatoes/green chilies. Mix well and heat thoroughly.
  3. Lightly spray 9x13 inch pan. Pour 1/2 the jar of cheese sauce on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Lay a single layer of noodles in the pan.
  5. Then layer meat mixture.
  6. Drizzle cheese sauce, salsa, and then shredded cheese. Then repeat noodles, etc, etc. THE LAST LAYER DO NOT ADD SHREDDED CHEESE. That will go on later. I did 3 layers.
  7. Cover tightly with foil. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. You might want to sit your pan on a cookie sheet in case it bubbles over.
  8. After an hour remove foil and add your shredded cheese.
  9. Return to oven 10 mins let sit for 10 mins.
  10. Serve top with sour cream.
  11. Now, remember I did no-boil noodles. You can use regular lasagna noodles you have to boil. Cook per package directions. When baking then you're only heating so I would say cook for 30 mins. Then remove foil, add cheese and return to oven for 10 minutes.

Guacamole and chips just taste a little better with a margarita. Sitting on the back patio on a warm day is a tad more relaxing sipping on a frozen margarita. They are traditionally made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. One reason we love margaritas, though, is you can adjust ingredients to suit your […]
