Tonight I made 2 of Greg's favorite things in 1 dish! Mexican food + Lasagna! I got the inspiration from Robin Miller's Quick Fix Meals but decided to use ground beef instead of chicken since we've had so much chicken in the last week. The best part about this dish is that there's no noodles to boil first! Look at all that cheesy goodness! YUM!


6 large tortillas
2 c Ricotta cheese
2 c Mexican cheese, shredded
2 cup Mexican salsa or picante sauce
2 tsp chile powder
1 c corn, frozen or canned
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1 lb ground beef


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Meanwhile, sauté the ground beef and onion in a large cast iron skillet or heavy frying pan until beef is done. Add salsa, chile powder, cumin, oregano and corn. Stir to mix and simmer on low heat 5 minutes, stirring sauce frequently.

3. Layer 2 tortillas, then 1/2 of the meat mixture, then 1 c Ricotta cheese. Repeat layer, finishing with the last 2 tortillas. Sprinkle on Mexican Cheese.

4. Bake for 30 minutes, or till cheese is bubbly. Allow to set for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with extra salsa, sour cream and guacamole (if desired).
