This is a recipe I have perfected, over the years. I have a secret ingredient, that I’m going to share with my friends here in “blogland”.
2 pounds ground beef or turkey
2 packets taco seasoning
Large soft tortillas
Shredded cheese (I buy the “fiesta” or “taco” blend sold in all the grocery stores here)
Enchilada or taco sauce
Brown ground beef/turkey. Add the taco seasoning, following the directions on the packet. Simmer for a few minutes on low heat. Place one tortilla inside of a baking pan. The pie pans work perfectly, but you could use a square one. I make ours using 2 pie pans. Spread about 1/2 cup of the ground beef onto tortilla. Top with about 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Layer on another tortilla. Repeat the beef and cheese. After you’ve got 3-4 tortillas layered in the pan, spread beef and cheese, and add the enchilada sauce and nacho cheese on top, as well. Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes. While it’s baking, shred the lettuce and mix it with about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of the Catalina dressing, coating all of the lettuce. Once it’s out of the oven, spread the lettuce and diced tomato over the top. Take a handful of the tortilla chips and crunch them up with your hands. Then spread those over the top. Your taco lasagne is ready to eat! This is Adam’s most favorite thing that I make 😊
