Ingredients (Serves 8-10):

*For the Meat Mixture:*
– 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
– 1 packet taco seasoning
– 1 cup diced onion
– 1 cup diced bell peppers (assorted colors)
– 1 can (14 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
– 1 can (14 oz) corn, drained
– 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, drained

*For the Lasagna:*
– 12 small corn tortillas
– 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese

*For the Topping:*
– Chopped fresh cilantro
– Sliced jalapeños
– Sour cream
– Sliced avocado


*Step 1: Prepare the Meat Mixture*
In a large skillet, cook the ground beef or turkey over medium heat until fully browned. Drain any excess grease. Add the taco seasoning, diced onion, and diced bell peppers. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetables are tender.

*Step 2: Add Beans, Corn, and Tomatoes*
Stir in the drained black beans, corn, and diced tomatoes. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Remove from heat.

*Step 3: Assemble the Lasagna*
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a greased 9×13-inch baking dish, layer 4 corn tortillas to cover the bottom. Spread half of the meat mixture over the tortillas, followed by a sprinkle of shredded cheese.

*Step 4: Repeat the Layers*
Place 4 more corn tortillas over the cheese layer. Spread the remaining meat mixture over the tortillas and add another layer of shredded cheese.

*Step 5: Top It Off*
Top the lasagna with the final layer of 4 corn tortillas. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese over the top, creating a deliciously cheesy crust.

*Step 6: Bake and Serve*
Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes to achieve a golden brown top.

*Step 7: Garnish and Enjoy*
Once baked, remove the Mexican Taco Lasagna from the oven. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, sliced jalapeños, dollops of sour cream, and slices of ripe avocado. Each bite will be a harmonious blend of Mexican flavors and the comfort of lasagna.
