Mexican Lasagna

Saturday, February 8, 2014

I used to beg people to teach me to cook! I didn't understand how someone could stand in front of an open fridge, grab random things and throw them together to make dinner...it boggled my brain!

Lately, I have noticed I'm able to do this more frequently...which is pretty darn cool! Today I'm feeling a little under the weather but I'm told my family still has to eat...so here is what I did! I found some corn tortillas and ground turkey in the freezer and a can of black beans in the pantry...so Mexican it was!

Mexican Lasagna


Ingredients
1.5 lbs ground turkey
1 can black beans
1/2 cup diced onions
Garlic
12 corn tortillas
3 cups shredded cheese

Brown ground turkey. When fully cooked, add diced onions, garlic and black beans. 

Cut all 12 tortillas in half and dredge 8 halves through the homemade enchilada sauce and place on the bottom of the 9 x 13 baking dish. Top with 1/3 of the meat mixture and 1 cup cheese. Repeat until you have 3 layers ending with cheese. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Enjoy!!


enchilada sauce
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp flour (I'm gluten free, but still did it this way)
1/4 cup chilli powder
2 cups chicken broth
10 oz ketchup 
2 Tbsp cumin

Heat oil and add flour. Whisk and cook about 1 min. Add chilli powder and cook and additional 30 seconds. Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a low boil. Pour into a bowl and let cool.
