Texas Lasagna

April 21, 2009


I love Tex-Mex  inspired dishes so when I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it.  The extra bonus is that it is quick, easy to make and is a meal all in one kind of dish.  Not to mention extremely yummy.  I used pinto beans for this recipe, but I think black beans or kidney beans would be great also.  I also used green enchilada sauce, but red would be fine as well.   I think even a can of corn would be great in this, just play around use what you have on hand or what you like.

Ingredients: 1lb  ground beef, 1 package taco seasoning, 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained, 1 can  enchilada sauce, 1 can beans, 2 cups cottage cheese, 2 eggs, lightly beaten, 12 corn tortillas (6 inches), torn, 3-1/2 to 4 cups,  shredded Monterey Jack cheese


start off browning your ground meat


While its browning crack your eggs in a small bowl and slightly beat


Then add 2 cups of cottage cheese and sir together


Once meat is browned add taco seasoning and enchilada sauce


Then add beans and tomatoes both undrained, you will need the extra juice to absorb into the tortillas.


Stir well and let simmer for about 20 minutes


Then in a 13 X 9 Casserole, spoon in half of the meat mixture


Then layer with 6 corn tortilla and half cottage cheese mixture


Then add your shredded cheese and repeat layers


Bake @ 350 for about 30 minutes


Serve and enjoy!

How’s that for a twist on Lasagna?! Stop by and click Tabletalk for my sister’s Mexican Cornbread. I bet you’ll like it.

Wowo does that ever look delish! I’d love to have a slice of that right now!


Mindee@ourfrontdoor April 21, 2009 at 1:32 pm

Anything with corn tortillas and cheese is going to be a winner. I have a similar dish without beans and I love it.


angela April 21, 2009 at 1:57 pm

Man what a great idea never heard of this but I am going to be sure and try it


Vivienne April 21, 2009 at 2:45 pm

This looks great. I’ll try your Tex-Mex, you try my traditional, and we’ll compare notes later. 🙂

BTW – that’s a stunt oven right? Your real oven isn’t that clean…right? Or you cleaned it just for pictures…right?

Gotta go. I’m shamed into going to buy a can of Easy Off.


Hajar Zamzam Ismail April 21, 2009 at 3:23 pm

It actually looks pretty yummy.


rachel-asouthernfairytale April 21, 2009 at 3:49 pm

Pam April 21, 2009 at 4:14 pm

This sounds wonderful. My family doesn’t care for beans, but I think they could easily be taken out. The dish would still be yummy!


Sweet Pea April 21, 2009 at 4:54 pm

Bonnie- don’t worry you can easily leave the beans out or sub them with a can of corn.

Ginger- I will have to check that out!

Lisa- yea I am so glad you guys like those recipes, I know they are a staple here.

Vivienne- that’s a deal!
