I am looking for a recipe for Mexican lasagna or enchilada casserole. A very simple recipe without a lot of ingredients would be helpful. Thank you.

I make this a lot. Easy and good.

1 pound ground beef cooked and drained
16 ounces cottage cheese
1 16 ounce can refried beans
1 package of ten flour tortillas
1 package taco seasoning
8 ounces colby cheese

Cook ground beef with taco seasoning per directions on package. In a 10 by 14 glass pan put one layer of tortillas in the bottom. Fill in corners with tortilla pieces. Spread ground taco meat in the bottom on top of tortilla. Top meat with another layer of tortillas. Spread cottage cheese on top of tortillas. Top cottage cheese with tortillas. Spread refried beans on top of the tortillas. Top with another layer of tortillas. Put colby cheese on top of the last layer. Stick 6 toothpicks into the lasagna at the corners and in the middle.


Cover with foil so the toothpicks keep the foil off of the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes and remove foil. Bake another 15 minutes till cheese just starts to brown. Enjoy. This is better the second day. My kids love it.

I love all kinds of lasagna recipes! I have had so many recipes, and seriously, I don't think I've found one yet that I didn't like. Such a great pot luck dish!


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can refried beans (16oz.)
  • 1/2 envelope mild taco seasoning mix
  • 1 jar picante sauce (24oz.)
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 pkg. lasagna noodles, cooked and drained (12oz.)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • sour cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brown ground beef in large skillet, stirring until crumbly; drain. Stir in beans and seasoning mix. Combine picante sauce and water in medium bowl, and mix well.

Layer ground beef mixture, noodles, onion, picante mixture and cheese 1/4 at a time in 9x13 inch baking pan, ending with cheese. Bake 45 minutes. Serve with sour cream. 8 servings.
