Taco Lasagna

I was going to make Enchilasagna tonight, but never got around to making the Enchilada Sauce. I decided to do some googling and came across some yummy seed ideas that grew into Taco Lasagna! This would also be good with shredded chicken breast, ground turkey or even double the beans and add some shredded veggies and make it a vegetarian dish!

12 corn tortillas, quartered
1 lb ground beef
1  recipe taco seasoning (1 commercial packet it fine)
1/3 cup water
2 cups prepared black beans(approx 1 can drained and rinsed)
1 cup sour cream

24 oz chunky salsa
8 oz shredded cheese(Cheddar, Mexican style, Pepper Jack, Monterrey Jack or any combo!)

5 green onions, sliced

*if you want to do vegetarian, heat the beans with some shredded veggies(carrots, zucchini and sweet pepper would be good) and then add the taco seasoning/water

Cook ground beef until all the pink is gone(drain if necessary) Add seasoning and water, stir well and simmer a few minutes more. Set aside

Preheat oven to 350º

Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish, arrange 4 tortillas over the bottom.
Spread over 1/2 the meat ,1/2 the beans, 1/2 the sour cream, 1/3 the salsa, 1/3 the cheese, 1/3 the onions.

Spread evenly, then top with another layer of tortillas.  Repeat layer again.

Add the remaining tortillas, then top with remaining salsa, cheese and green onions.

Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes, uncover and bake 15 minutes more.

Allow to set for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Top with fresh shredded greens, diced tomatoes, fresh Jalapeños , more sour cream and salsa.......endless possibilities!!!
