Cheesy Taco Lasagna (Fun and easy dinner idea!)

This quick and easy family dinner recipe is made with ground beef, refried beans, taco seasoning, tortillas and lots of cheese! Add anything else to the mix that you would enjoy in a taco or burrito. 

Servings: 8
Ingredients
  • 6 flour tortillas (soft taco size)
  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 4 cups grated cheddar cheese (or cheese of your choice)
  • 2/3 cup water
Optional Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 (14 ounce) can mexican diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink (if you are using onions, garlic or peppers cook these with the beef at the same time). 

  2. Once the beef is brown, add 2/3 cup water and 1 packet of taco seasoning. Let simmer for about 5 minutes. At this time, go ahead and add anything else to the beef mixture that you plan on layering in the lasagna (tomatoes, black beans, etc.), and let simmer, uncovered, for an additional 5-10 minutes.

  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking dish. 

  4. Place 2 of your tortillas onto the bottom of the dish and top with half of your refried beans (heat them in the microwave to make them easier to spread). Now, top with half of your beef mixture and a heaping cup of cheese. 

  5. Repeat layers one more time. Top with the remaining 2 tortillas and the rest of the cheese. 

  6. Cover the dish with foil, and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover, and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown a little. 

  7. Serve with the toppings of your choice: lettuce, sour cream, avocado, cilantro, salsa, etc! YUM

  8. Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes
  • Don't be afraid to experiment! You can add anything to the mix that you would like: maybe substitute chicken for ground beef, add in a little Spanish rice, or perhaps a jar of diced green chilis! I usually change it up a bit every time I make it, just depending on what I have on hand.
  • Feel free to use any cheese that you would like. I like pepper jack, but it's too spicy for my daughter. A mexican blend is also a good choice!
