Last night I made Taco Lasagna a recipe I found on Love Bakes Good Cakes. It was oh so Yummy, Hubby and Pey went back for seconds. (my version did not include the can of refried beans and I used ground turkey)
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup water
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14.5 oz) Mexican-style diced tomatoes, undrained
6 (8-in.) flour tortillas
1 can (16 oz.) refried beans
3 cups (12 oz.) Mexican cheese blend, divided
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a large skillet, cook beef, green pepper and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add water and taco seasoning – bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 3-4 minutes. Stir in black beans and tomatoes. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
Place 2 tortillas in a greased 13x9x2-in. baking dish. Spread half of the beans on top of the tortillas. Top with half of the beef mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining tortillas and cheese. Cover and bake at 350° F. for 30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting.
