This delicious mashup of traditional Mexican flavors served traditional Italian way makes for a truly irresistible taco dish. Mexican taco lasagna! My favorite Mexican food is tacos, I order them everywhere I go, and my favorite Italian dish is baked nutrition lasagna so why not marry those two together into simple recipe. It is one of the best home made dish recipes with perfect taste and flavor.
This best taco lasagna ever recipe is an ultimate comfort meal with noodles. Cheesy and gooey goodness that is also extremely flavorful, no one could resist this mouthwatering homemade lasagna.
This taco lasagna is great for easy baked dinner while it combines all the classic taco ingredients: beef, salsa, taco seasoning, tortillas and of course lots and lots of Mexican cheese. The cheese is oozing out with every bite that you take of this yummy offering. I also add veggies such as onion, garlic and peppers just to freshen up the dish and balance out the richness and creaminess of the cheese, and one of the main ingredients – beans. Beans round up the complete list of Mexican flavors in this dish.
This dish can be served with your favorite taco toppings as well. Sour cream for a dollop of tangy creaminess, chunky salsa and tomato paste fre a little piquant kick, sliced avocados or guacamole, fresh chopped cilantro for a beautiful pop of green or even marinated jalapeños or chili pepper for spicy food lovers or simply serve this taco lasagna with vegetable salad.
It is very easy to make this cheese lasagna and takes just under an hour to have this filling and nutritious dish on your table while this lasagne has low calories. My recommendation is to use quality ground beef, like grass fed or organic. You can also substitute for any type of meat like ground turkey or even ground chicken for a guilt free meat indulgence. Same goes for a low-fat cheese varieties over a full-fat ones. I am also using flour tortillas (I LOVE tortillas) instead of lasagna noodles but this dish tastes fantastic with both!
It is also very kid friendly, because lets be honest kids love flavored lasagna and tacos! What a great idea for a hearty middle of the week dinner. This carb comforting meal will please even the pickiest eaters! In addition, it is big enough so there would be no leftovers in your family. I hope you will love this recipe just like I do.
