Beef Meat Mexican

Mexican Lasagna

I had to post this, even though the picture isn’t that great… Because of the rave reviews! This dish layers corn tortillas, spicy meat sauce, creamy cheesy sauce, and shredded Mexican cheese. Bake until bubbly and starting to brown, and top with chopped scallions. Easy meal for weeknights or weekends!

Ingredients

2 pounds spicy sausage

1 red onion, diced

Kosher salt and black pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 packet taco seasoning

15 ounce can refried beans

10 oz enchilada sauce

1 can fire roasted tomatoes, drained

2 cobs, fresh corn, kernels removed

24 oz can diced green chiles

4 ounce can diced jalapeño peppers, drained

¼ cup cilantro, chopped

16 oz ricotta cheese

1 cup Shredded Mexican cheese

1015 corn tortillas

3 cups Mexican blend cheese

Chopped cilantro

Scallions, chopped

sour cream, shredded lettuce, or sliced avocado, for serving

guacamole for serving

pico de gallo for serving

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat an 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.

Cook sausage and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat; until cooked through and the onion is

soft and translucent. Season with salt and pepper. Add in the garlic and taco seasoning, and saute until

fragrant.

Stir in the beans, enchilada sauce, tomatoes, and corn; and cook until well combined and heated

through. Meanwhile, mix the green chiles, jalapeños, cilantro, 1 cup shredded cheese, and ricotta

cheese until combined.

Spread a thin layer of the meat mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Cover with

tortillas, splitting one of them in half to fit. Spread 1/2 of the meat mixture on top, followed by 1/2 of

the ricotta mixture, and then 1/3 cup Mexican cheese. Repeat these layers, ending with corn tortillas,

and then a layer of shredded cheese.

Put the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake until cheese is bubbly and golden, about 25 minutes.

Let rest for 10 minutes before cutting. Top with cilantro and scallions. Serve with your choice of

toppings.
