How To Make Mexican Taco Lasagna

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F

In a deep cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, brown your ground beef. Make sure you break it up into small pieces while cooking and stir frequently.Pour excess grease out before adding other ingredients

 

Pro Tips:

 

Layering Magic: To ensure even distribution of flavors, layer the ingredients evenly. Start with a thin layer of the meat mixture, followed by tortillas, and then cheese. Repeat until all ingredients are used, finishing with a generous layer of cheese on top.

 

Customize Your Heat: Adjust the spice level by choosing a mild or hot salsa, and feel free to add diced jalapeños or a pinch of cayenne pepper for an extra kick.

 

Fresh is Best: Incorporate fresh, quality ingredients for the best taste. Opt for ripe tomatoes, crisp onions, and flavorful cilantro to enhance the overall dish.

 

Let it Rest: Allow the lasagna to rest for 10-15 minutes after baking. This helps the layers set, making it easier to slice and serving a more cohesive dish.
