My guests went crazy when they tasted this Taco Lasagna. What a great party pleaser! It has everything you need. No need for chips, just plates and forks and good beverages. You can make this mild, medium or hot! I would suggest doing some items mild and some medium. It is a good mix.


  • 1 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 1 package small round corn floured tortillas (12-18)ct.
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 jar (15 oz) medium chunky salsa
  • 1 jar (15 oz) salsa con Queso cheese
  • 1 can traditional refried beans
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • guacamole & sour cream for topping as desired


  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Spray oil a 9 x 9 in. baking dish.
  2. Ad

  3. Using a skillet, scramble the ground beef well until cooked. Drain off any fat. Add 1/4 cup water and seasoning mix. Stir well and simmer.
  4. Mix salsa, cheese, and sour cream in a medium bowl. Stir in the meat mixture.
  5. Place 3-4 tacos in the pan, top with 1/3 of meat mixture.
  6. Repeat layers, ending with a layer of tortillas on top. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese over the top.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes and it should be bubbling.
  8. Serve with chopped cilantro, guacamole and extra sour cream as desired!

This is a quick, cheap, adaptable recipe. You can add in extras (corn, etc) or make substitutions (ex: corn chips instead of crackers). Amounts of ingredients and cooking time will depend on size of casserole dish.
