Mexican Lasagna
I’ve never really tried my hand at casseroles up until last year. I just kept forgetting. And forgetting and forgetting. Till I saw a good one on Pinterest. That’s the thing I love about Pinterest. It’s so full of good ideas and inspiration and they’re all visual. Because we eat with our eyes first, right? Anyway, this recipe caught my eye so I thought I’d try it out. It probably doesn’t look very appealing, a sort of flat lasagna wannabe  but it tasted so great!

Mexican Lasagna

Think of this as a repackaged burrito, with all the fixings. You can add refried beans or rice, I choose not to cause I don’t really like those in my Mexican food. Pair this with pickled jalapenos and sour cream and there’s really not much more you can ask for. Don’t forget a healthy layer of shredded lettuce to add some crunch and maybe some shredded cheese. And if you want a super tall towering lasagna, feel free to double the ingredients and pile it on. Also, if you don’t like ground beef, switch it to chicken or turkey, the options are endless. I choose to keep the recipe fairly basic to act as a starting point for your culinary imagination!
