Easy Tortilla Lasagna
The word in our house is simplicity. The more pans and the more weird ingredients will have me skip over something online. I could make a lot of this myself from scratch, I just choose to buy it at the store. I always choose organic and non-gmo and as much fresh as possible.
This is from a few different recipes online and things we had in the fridge either open or coming to expiration. It was gobbled right up in my house and a ton of different alternations could be made to make it compliant to different diets.
2 lbs hamburger (organic grass-fed, if possible)
1 tbsp garlic
1 onion, cut up
Black pepper, to taste
1 tbsp fresh Cilantro
1 can of organic black beans
1 jar organic salsa (we use mild)
1 jar organic pasta sauce
1 Package spinach
1 tbsp coconut oil
3 large or 4 small tortillas
Grease a glass 9 x 13 baking pan with coconut oil or something high temp compliant.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Add a couple of tablespoons of the pasta sauce to the bottom of the pan. This will help tortillas from sticking.
Brown hamburger with onion. When it's almost done, add the garlic and cilantro
Return to pan
Add in the salsa, black beans, spinach, pasta sauce, and stir it all together.
Take a tortilla and cut a little off one end so it's flat and will slide up against the baking pan evenly. If it's very large, the side edges might need to be cut down as well. Do the same on the opposite side of the pan. Save the pieces you are cutting off.
Add 1/2 the hamburger mix to the top of the tortillas
Add 1 cup of cheese to the top
Layer another tortilla and fill in the extra pieces to finish the second layer
Add the rest of the hamburger mix
Add the last 1 cup of cheese to the top
Bake for 10 minutes at 350 to melt the cheese and heat it up
There are a lot of modifications to be made to this. Cottage cheese could be added. One website added corn. Wraps could be switched out to egg wraps or the Siete brand (love these). Ground turkey could be switched out for the hamburger. Seasonings and spices can be customized to your level of taste.
I'd love to hear if you make modifications and what they are.
