Mexican Lasagna

This Mexican lasagna casserole has been a great hit with my family and many others. It’s good for feeding a moderate sized crowd (just like regular lasagna) because you can make three or four recipes ahead of time then just heat them in the oven. Gluten-free corn bread goes great with this. One recipe feeds our family of five with maybe a little leftover. Double it to make the larger typical lasagna size.

Total time: 
Serves: 8
 
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 package gluten-free Taco seasoning (I used McCormick)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 8 ounces tomato sauce
  • Corn tortillas, cut in strips
  • Shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
Instructions
  1. Brown the beef and sauté the onion in a skillet.
  2. Add the seasoning mix and prepare according to the package.
  3. Combine the beans and tomato sauce and place a little of this mixture in the bottom of a greased 2 quart casserole dish.
  4. Add a layer of tortillas, putting them on any way you want to cover the space, but overlapping them some.
  5. Add half the beef mix, spreading it out to the edges.
  6. Sprinkle on cheese to cover (how much depends on how cheesy you like it).
  7. Spread half the remaining beans on top.
  8. Repeat layers of tortillas, beef, cheese, and beans. Top with some additional cheese, or reverse the last two layers so that the beans go on top of the beef and you end with cheese.
  9. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

That looks good!My sister makes something simialr called "Burrito Casserole" that uses ground beef, taco seasoning, refrid beans, onions, cheese, tomatoes and Hormel Chili w/beans over all of it.She then tops with cheese.I think I like the idea of yours better….the ground beef & chili is almost too much.

I made this recipe the other night and it was great! We put a generous dollop of gf sour cream on top and that just made it!!My hubby who is the gluten free one liked it and said that I could add it into our rotation!

I just made this today.Since it is summer and the fresh veggies are in, I decided to add some fresh corn….it is delicious.Next time I think I'll add some chopped zucchini!

This was just okay. It was better the next day, heated up, but it was a very heavy dish. It really needed a lighter layer or some veggies or maybe both. It reminded me of frito pie in flavor, but just much denser and kind of mushy in texture. I wouldn't make it again without significant revisions.

Enchiladas are great for a crowd, that's for sure!

Adding rice or corn kernels would probably lighten it up a bit, I would guess.

I made this for my family the other night and they all liked it. I was diagnosed with Celiac in March 2009 so I am always looking for good recipes that I can eat and the family will like as well. Thanks for posting the recipe.
