Mexican Lasagna

I just tried this recipe for the first time last night and we really enjoyed it. I hope you do as well!

Mexican Lasagna

1 lb. ground beef
3/4 c. salsa
1 pkg. taco seasoning
4 flour tortillas
1 can pinto beans, drained & rinsed
1- 1 1/2 c. grated cheese (I used cheddar)

Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Brown your beef and drain. Add salsa and taco seasoning (may not need the whole pkg, season to taste) and simmer for 10 mins.
Grease an 8x8 square pan and spread 1/2 c. meat mixture across bottom of pan.
Layer 2 tortillas on top of that.
Pour half the remaining meat on top of the tortillas.
Pour half of your can of beans on top of that followed by half of your cheese.
Layer once more with tortillas, beans & cheese.
Cover and cook for 30 minutes, let sit for 5 minutes after removing from oven.

We ate this with a little sour cream on the side and a salad.

You could easily do more layers with only one tortilla and less of your meat & beans per layer. You can experiment with it.
