How to Make Mexican Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Break up meat in skillet over medium heat. Add onions, saute til onions are soft and meat is cooked. Drain fat, add the salt, chili powder, pepper, tomato sauce, kidney beans. Set aside. Mix the shredded cheddar and jack cheese, the cottage cheese and sour cream. Set aside. Shred chilies into strips and cut each tortilla into 4 strips.
  2. Spread 1/3 of meat mixture in bottom of 9 x 9 inch baking dish, add layers of half the tortilla strips, chili strips, and cheese mixture. Repeat layers, starting with another layer of meat mixture and top with remaining meat mixture. Sprinkle on the mixed shredded and jack cheese and top with olives. Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes til cheese melts and lasagna is thoroughly heated.
    Note: I'm not a big fan of cottage cheese, so I use ricotta for this or sometimes Queso Fresco
