How to Make Tex Mex Lasagna

Step-by-Step

  1. Brown ground beef and drain. Stir in beans, taco and other seasonings.
  2. Reserve 1/2 cup salsa; stir the rest of the salsa and tomato sauce into the beef mixture.
  3. Mix pasta sauce with 3 cups of cheese.
  4. Spread 1/2 cup salsa on the bottom of a sprayed 12x8 baking pan.
  5. Layer 3 noodles, 1/2 cheese mix, 3 noodles, 1/2 beef mix and repeat, ending with beef mix on top. (Add some water to the beef mix before spreading it on as the last layer.)
  6. According to your taste, you can also add chopped onions, black olives, peppers and cilantro to any of the layers.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover with foil and bake at least 1 1/4 hours until bubbly. Sprinkle last cup of cheese on top and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  8. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
  9. Note -- You can substitute lighter and reduced ingredients, if available, without impacting the taste. Can also use corn tortillas instead of lasagna noodles.
