Mexican Lasagna

This is a non BBQ recipe post. The other night I made what we are calling "Mexican lasagna." It came out really good and so I decided to share it with you. It was even good reheated a few nights later. Sorry the pictures are lame, I forgot to take a picture till it was almost gone. I came up with the recipe off the top of my head and some of the measurements may not be exact but are approximates. Feel free to substitute ground beef for the ground turkey. We have a beef allergy in our house, so ground turkey is our go to substitute. 

Mexican Lasagna

6 flour tortillas (We used whole wheat)
1 can refried beans
1 large can diced green chilies
1 pound ground turkey
8 ounces sour cream
1 cup salsa (divided)
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
1 to 2 cups shredded cheese (depends on how much cheese you want)

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cook ground turkey and add 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning to meat.
  3. In a 13x9 pan add 1/2 cup of salsa and spread to cover the bottom.
  4. Place 2 of the tortillas on the salsa.
  5. Mix the refried beans, green chilies (drain the chilies if you don't want as much heat), and 1 Tablespoon taco seasoning. Add the mix to the pan and spread to coat the tortillas.
  6. Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top.
  7. Layer in 2 more tortillas.
  8. Next mix sour cream with cooked turkey meat and taco seasoning. Spread the mixture on top of the last layer.
  9. Top with 2 more tortillas, then the rest of the salsa and a nice coat of shredded cheese.
  10. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes until it is bubbling and the cheese is nicely browned.
  11. Remove from oven and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. It will firm up a little.
  12. Refrigerate any leftovers in the pan. To reheat, place in the oven covered with foil for about 20 until warmed through.

MMM, Yummy!
