Instructions for Mexican lasagne

1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. In a large pan, brown the ground beef over medium heat. Once cooked, remove the beef from the pan and set it aside.
3. In the same pan, sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic until the onion becomes translucent.
4. Add the black beans, corn, salsa, cumin, and chili powder to the pan. Mix well.
5. Return the cooked beef to the pan and stir until all ingredients are well combined.
6. In a 9×13 inch baking dish, spread a thin layer of the beef mixture.
7. Cover the beef mixture with a layer of tortillas, followed by a layer of the cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.
8. Repeat the layering process until all ingredients are used, finishing with a final layer of cheese on top.
9. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and golden.
10. Remove from the oven and allow the lasagne to rest for 5 minutes before serving.


1. For an extra kick, consider adding a chopped jalapeño to the beef mixture.
2. If you prefer a crispier top, broil the lasagne for an additional 2-3 minutes after baking.
3. To make the lasagne more health-conscious, opt for low-fat cheese and lean ground beef.

Our Mexican lasagne is best served warm, straight from the oven. Pair it with a fresh green salad or a side of guacamole for a complete meal.
