Mexican Lasagna By: Lindsey

One of my sisters friends, Mary, has a blog. She has "Meal Idea Monday" and will post a recipe. How cute is that? Well, this week I have made two of her recipes off of her blog. And both of them were tasteeee! You know what is funny? My sister said that most of her recipes that she has posted on here have come from Mary. Ha ha! Mary, if you are reading this, thanks sooooo much! We love all your recipes!

*This came directly from her blog*
Mexican Lasagna

Meal Idea Monday

Mexican Lasagna

1lb. ground beef or turkey
1 pkg. dry taco mix seasoning
1 c. water
12 (6") corn tortillas
1 c. salsa
1 (8oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (15oz.) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (4oz.) can sliced black olives, drained
1 (4oz.) can mild chilies, drained
2 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown meat; add seasoning and 1 cup water. Cook until thick. Spray a 9 X 13 pan. Place 6 tortillas on bottom of pan, overlapping them. Mix salsa and tomato sauce; set aside. Top tortillas with half the meat, corn, olives, and chilies. Pour half the salsa and sauce mixture over this and sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Repeat, finishing with cheese. Bake 20 minutes. Serves 6-8.

I got this recipe out of a kid friendly cookbook, and it's a hit w/ the family...including the kids. I omit the olives and it is still tasty.

*Instead of olives I put onions* Yum!
