Mexican Lasagna Casserole Recipe!

Thank you to my husbands sister in law for this recipe. It has become a frequent dinner in the weekly routine and the best part is, there’s leftovers for another meal! Sometimes I just loathe cooking, other times I want to be creative and venture outside of the box. However, last night was not one of those nights.

Mexican Lasagna Casserole Recipe

What you’ll need:
  • 1 lb of Hamburger
  • 1 Large Jar of Spaghettie Sauce (your choice), we usually use traditional or garlic.
  • 1 16 oz Jar of  Medium Salsa.
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese.
  • 1 can of olives, either large whole and cut them up or pre-chopped ones – your choice.
  • 1 can of sliced mushrooms.
  • I usually add pinto/black beans as well and about a half-cup of mild jalapenos. 

Directions:

Preheat the oven on 350 degrees and start browning the hamburger.

Add all above ingredients into large sauce pan and simmer for 5-10 min.

Layer the bottom of the casserole dish with flour tortillas. I use soft taco size and it requires 2 for each layer usually.

 Top each layer with the sauce mixture and cheese. Repeat until all sauce is gone, distributing layers evenly. I usually have about 3 layers in my casserole dish.
 Top it off with flour tortillas and the rest of the cheddar cheese. Stick it in the oven for about 20 minutes. You want the top to be melted-cheesy goodness and a little crispy.
Once it’s finished, let it cool for 5-10 minutes, slice and Enjoy!

    oh my gosh! I make a taco casserole that is similar, but I never would’ve thought to use spaghetti sauce and beans. Thanks for sharing!
