How To: Big Batch – Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna

IMG_7648

After making this recipe three times over the past two weeks, I thought it could now definitely be deemed “blog worthy.”

I loved it so much that the last time I made it, I doubled the recipe and made an extra pan to store in the freezer. Yes, at just over 38 weeks pregnant I am in full on nesting mode. And I know that having this delicious and filling lasagna ready to pop into the oven with a 2.5 year old and newborn at home will surely be a lifesaver.

But I must say, this Mexican lasagna comes together so fast, it is the perfect weeknight meal. Just like our enchilada casserole, corn tortillas replace the standard lasagna noodles. Instead of the Italian tomato sauce, your favourite salsa is used to cover the bean, spinach, and cheesy layers.

If I say this is worthy of a triple recipe repeat in a mere two weeks, you owe it to yourself to at least give it a go once!

Ingredients

  • 10 Oz bag spinach
  • 1 Large jar of salsa
  • 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 red pepper (chopped)
  • 1 Small log goat cheese
  • 1 1/2 Tsp chili powder
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 1/2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese

Note

I like serving this casserole with a dollop of Greek yogurt, a squeeze of lime, and a mixed green salad with avocado and tomatoes. This dish also freezes very well so it makes a great make ahead option.

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 pyrex dish with cooking spray and set aside.
2. Heat a large non stick skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Cook spinach in pan until wilted and set aside.
3. Spread about 1/3 of the jar of salsa evenly over the bottom of the pyrex dish. Lay 6 tortillas evenly on top. Spread another 1/3 of salsa on top of the tortillas and top with spinach, beans, red pepper, chili powder, and goat cheese. Lay remaining 6 tortillas on top and cover with remaining salsa and cheddar cheese.
4. Cover pan with foil and bake for about 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes. If the cheese isn't browned yet, broil for another 5 minutes. Serve topped with sour cream or greek yogurt and guacamole.

  1. We will forever keep in mind which Harry Reid is often a other Mormon. and nBut there is something else below which just about everyone will be missing Romney might not exactly paid just about any taxes intended for 10 years because he might dont you have attained it pay intended for 10 years. Hew very well could possibly have compensated him or her self a salary of $1 and that is properly authorized and that is not taxable, consequently zero “income” taxes. (I believe that it is $7K make prior to deciding to have to submit, while it might be a bit significantly less. ) and nHe could possibly have alternatively considered his or her dollars as rewards and that is properly authorized (if the product can be another concern, but it really *is* authorized, as well as routinely done) and therefore only experienced “investment” revenue what is the best he most probably compensated the suitable taxes. And therefore someone who in some manner (illegally) obtained a duplicate of Romney’s tax statements for all many years only sees the dog having to pay taxes with expenditure earnings without having realizing that it is really wage compensated as rewards as well as knee-jerks the “didn’t pay out taxes” mantra. and national insurance think Ms. Goodman input it very best previous summer months: Mitt Romney is incredibly VERY rich. Fine he’s ample dollars to not want fraction as well as payoffs and therefore could be honest. And albeit, I don’t health care exactly how he gets to spend *his* dollars, On the web more concered about exactly how he (or NoBama) gets to spend *OUR* dollars….
