This week I bring you some Latin flavors with a meaty, cheesy, spicy and easy to make Mexican Lasagna. For this delicious lasagna recipe, I made it with Roasted Red Pepper Salsa, along with Pace Medium Salsa.
My friends, I just realized that I don't have many Mexican recipes here at Spoonabilities. Get ready because starting this week you will receive some of my top Mexican dishes to help you to plan for the Cinco De Mayo celebration. If you don’t know what Cinco de Mayo is, it translates to “fifth of May,” which is a Mexican holiday to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Contrary to popular belief, it is not Mexico’s Independence Day.
I'm all about bringing EASY recipes with a lot of flavors. And, this lasagna will not disappoint you.
For this recipe, I'm using Roasted Red Pepper Salsa and Pace Medium Salsa. We love these products, and the combination of both products is the perfect pairing of ingredients for this Mexican Lasagna recipe.
Three Simple Steps to Mexican Lasagna
The cooking time is over an hour but the prep time is quick. This recipe has three simple steps:
Cook the Meat:
- Brown the meat and drain the fat off. Then add the taco seasoning, Pace Medium Salsa, Roasted Red Pepper Salsa, and refried beans.
Assemble the Lasagna:
- Using the no-boil lasagna pasta, start by adding the first layer of Roasted Red Pepper Salsa, then the meat mixture, then cheese, and then the lasagna pasta. Repeat all of the above for two more layers.
Bake the Lasagna:
- Bake covered for one hour. When the time is up, add more salsa and cheese. Bake uncovered for another 10 minutes.
Serve with sour cream, freshly chopped tomato, and green onions. And, more cheese because you can never have too much cheese.
More Recipes with these Ingredients
The best thing about planning this recipe was having all the ingredients already in my pantry. I had two jars already open in the refrigerator from my last two recipes that I used the Roasted Red Pepper Salsa: Vegetarian Black Bean Soup, and Fiesta Roasted Red Pepper Dip.
Happy Week my friends!
