Simple Mexican Lasagna in Just 30 Minutes

Mexican Lasagna is made with layer upon layer of spectacular south-of-the-border flavors.  A drool worthy dish with just enough heat to wake up your taste buds, you will surely beat the picky palates in your house with this fabulous casserole that takes 15 minutes of prep and 15 minutes to bake.  A favorite of adults and kids alike, it is sure to be a member of the clean plate club at your house too!

Make sure you print the recipe, you are going to want to hold onto this one!  It is amazing, easy to make, and it freezes extraordinarily well! Either wrap individual portions in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer bag, or divide recipe between 2 smaller casserole dishes and freeze one (freeze it uncooked, then just defrost, cook and enjoy!).

Dinner's Ready!

  1. This sounds amazingly easy and delicious. What a beautiful casserole!

  2. You know exactly how much my family loves a good Mexican Lasagna! With a scoop of sour cream on top, of course. Chad just doesn't know what he is missing. :P

  3. With school back in, I really need to take advantage of freeze ahead meals like this.

  4. wow, this is yummy and very well presented too!

  5. I just found this on foodgawker. I'm so happy to have found your blog and am now your newest follower. When you get a chance come check out

  6. i have done lasgna alot of ways- even rolls before- but never mexican! I must change that now

  7. This looks amazing but my husband wouldn't eat it as he doesn't like anything Mexican... Maybe if I didn't say it was Mexican he would eat it. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday and remember to come and vote on Sunday.

  8. Can this Mexican Lasagna be made ahead of time and frozen?

    1. Absolutely. I have prepared it and then frozen it. The assembled but uncooked lasagne can be frozen for up to 3 months. Wrap dish tightly in double layer of plastic and a layer of aluminum foil. Thaw overnight in fridge and cook as above.

      Enjoy and let us know how it goes!
