How to Make Mexican Lasagna

  • 2Boil the lasagna noodles.
  • 3In a different skillet, add your bacon drippings, 1 Tbs garlic and the black beans. Cook the black beans and slowly mash them until they resemble refried beans. Salt and pepper the beans.
  • 4Preheat oven to 350.
  • 5Spray non-stick in a 9x13 baking dish, layer lasagna noodles, bean mixture, meat mixture then a layer of cheese. Repeat until pan is almost full. Noodles, reserved 1 cup of sauce then cheese should be your top layers!
  • 6Bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted on top. Top with a dollop of sour cream, black olives, green onions or guacamole- or your favorite salsa!
