My first Craftster Challenge entry-woohoo!  Smiley

I saw a recipe for a Mexican "pie" years and years ago and decided to make something similar but, y'know, bigger and (hopefully) tastier! I've been making my Mexican Lasagna since 2001 and people ask for the recipe every time I bring it to a party. I hope you enjoy it!

My Mexican Lasagna - Gladymakes

Ingredients (I usually cook with "a dash of this" or "a pinch of that", but I have quantified the measurements as closely as I could Grin)
**1 large oval aluminum roasting pan
1 x package of 10 tortillas
1 x 1 1/2 - 2lbs ground beef
2 x big jars salsa (I like the chunky kind)
1 x big block (or bag) of cheese (500g - I like Monterey Jack and cheddar)
1 x small onion chopped
1-2 x cloves of garlic minced
1 x tub of sour cream
1 x tub of guacamole (optional - you could also make your own)
1 x packet taco seasoning
1-2 tsp. cajun seasoning
1 x bag of tortilla chips
salt and pepper to taste


(ingredient round-up, onions/garlic/seasonings, beef, salsa)

Directions:
**If using blocks of cheese, shred this before you start on the beef/salsa sauce
1. Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit
2. On medium heat, in a big pan, saute the onion for a couple of minutes. Then add the garlic. Saute for 1 minute.
3. Add the cajun seasoning, salt and pepper. Saute for another minute.
4. Add the beef and taco seasoning. Crumble the beef up, stir and cook until the beef is no longer pink.
5. Add the salsa to the beef mixture and stir to combine.
6. Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil then take off heat.


(saucy bottom-hehe, tortilla/beef salsa layer, sour cream/cheese layer, top layer)

7. Get your pan and ladle a little of the sauce into the bottom of the pan. (You just need enough that the first layer of tortillas has something to stick to.)
8. Place first layer of two tortillas side by side in pan. Add enough sauce to cover.
9. Place second layer of tortillas in pan on top of sauce layer. Add some of the sour cream, guacamole, cheese, and crumbled chips.
10. Repeat layers.
11. You should end with the sauce/beef layer. To this layer add a few dollops of the sour cream and guacamole. Sprinkle the remaining cheese and crumble more chips on top.
12. Cover the lasagna with foil and put into the oven for 20min. Take foil off and leave in the oven for another 10min or until the chips are nice and golden.
13. Let cool and then eat and enjoy!

Thanks! Give it a go. You can add more or less seasoning and spices as you please  Smiley
