Mexican Lasagna

I hope everyone is having a wonderful new year so far. I figured since it is cold outside I would post a warm dish on here. I got the recipe from Debbie over fromDebbi Does Dinner Healthy & Low Calorie but had to switch it up some. I did not have everything for the recipe at home so I improvised and used what I had. In case you are wondering why my lasagna is green, it is because I used garden spinach tortillas but whatever you use will be fine. Debbie used green chilies which would of been delicious in this but I did not have any on hand so those were left out. Make sure to swing by and check out her recipes.

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 med. onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup of frozen corn or a can of corn
  • 8 button mushrooms
  • 1/4 c. hot sauce
  • 1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (15 oz) can refried beans
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 6 tortillas
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large skillet saute the turkey for 5 minutes over medium heat.
  3. Add onion, peppers, mushrooms and garlic and saute for 5 more minute.
  4. Mix in tomatoes, corn, black beans, hot sauce and refried beans. Stir thoroughly, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Spread a thin layer of meat mixture on bottom of 9x9 pan. Place 2 tortillas or howver many you need to cover your can, over the meat mixture followed by more meat, half of the sour cream and 1/2c cheese. Repeat the layers again topping off with a layer of meat mixture and cheese.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly brown.

So glad you liked it! How are the green tortilla's? Do they taste any different? I've always been curious about that. Thanks!

The green tortillas don't really have any flavor to them. They are just green which makes me feel like I am eating something healthy.
