MOMS Club gets cooking!
We thank member Tanya of Stanhope for sharing this recipe for Mexican Lasagna, which serves a family of four.
3 cans of beans mix of black and kidney
About 4 flour tortillas
2 packages of shredded cheese or 8-16 oz block cheese & shred it yourself. Cheddar, Monterey, whatever you like
1 jar salsa
1 can corn or frozen or fresh corn kernels (1-2 cups)
1 bell pepper, whatever color you prefer
1 onion, diced
3 cups cooked rice
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
1 to 2 TBS ground flax seed
1 inch piece ginger, minced or grated
or 1 tsp ground ginger
2 TBS cumin
Drain and rinse beans. Pour into large saucepan, and add about 2 cans water, cook over medium heat.
Add all seasonings, stir well.
Mix together 1 cup of salsa and all the veggies, add to bean mixture.
Cook for about 10 minutes until hot throughout.
In glass or dark coated lasagna pan, place cooked rice to cover the bottom, flatten out.
Rip flour tortillas into strips (like lasagna noodles) and layer on top of rice.
Add a layer of bean mixture, sprinkle with cheese.
Then add a second layer of tortilla strips and beans, pour salsa over to cover, then remaining cheese.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees until heated through and cheese is bubbly.
A little dollop of sour cream on top would be yummy!
This recipe is very forgiving and versatile. Increase or decrease spices as per your preference. Add shredded or ground meat or chicken or extra veggies if you’d like. This is great to use up leftovers too!
