Taco Tortilla Lasagna

It’s time for Taco Tuesday! Mine is lip-smacking delicious and full of flavor! ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
I made a very tasty tray of Taco Tortilla Lasagna, that came together fairly quickly and was gone in no time. Layer upon layer of spectacular south-of-the-border flavors; and it’s an easy recipe that you can modify to suit yours and your family’s taste preferences and what you have on hand to cook with.๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ๐ŸคŒ๐Ÿป

Hereโ€™s the list of ingredients youโ€™ll need to make the Taco Tortilla Lasagna:

๐ŸŒฎ 1 pound lean ground beef
๐ŸŒฎ 1 tablespoon olive oil
๐ŸŒฎ 1 small onion, chopped
๐ŸŒฎ 1/2 cup colored peppers, diced
๐ŸŒฎ 2 scallions, thinly sliced 
๐ŸŒฎ 1/2 cup cooked red beans
๐ŸŒฎ 1/2 cup corn
๐ŸŒฎ 1 tablespoon tomato paste 
๐ŸŒฎ 1 packet taco seasonings
๐ŸŒฎ 1/2 cup taco sauce 
๐ŸŒฎ 1 cup hot water
๐ŸŒฎ Salt & Pepper to taste
๐ŸŒฎ Grated cheddar cheese
๐ŸŒฎ 5 large flour tortillas 

๐ŸŒฎ First gather all the ingredients listed above and start with making the taco meat filling.
๐ŸŒฎ In a deep skillet, heat oil and sautรฉ onion until soft and fragrant. Add the sliced scallions, diced peppers, mix and cook for 2 minutes, then add the ground beef.
๐ŸŒฎ Break the meat lumps up with the edge of a spatula or a spoon. Add cooked beans, tomato paste, taco seasoning; mix and cook for 3 minutes.
๐ŸŒฎ Add the taco sauce and hot water, put the lid on, and simmer on medium-low heat until sauce is thickened; about 10 minutes. Mix the cooked corn in, cook for just a minute, then take off the heat and set aside to cool a little.
๐ŸŒฎ Now letโ€™s assemble the tray. First lay a flour tortilla on the bottom of the pan, spread a thin layer of sour cream on top, then add a layer of the taco meat filling, then a generous sprinkle of shredded cheese. Repeat the layers until the tray is almost full. The top layer should be a tortilla topped with a thin layer of sour cream and a lot of shredded cheese ๐Ÿคฉ
๐ŸŒฎ Bake tray in a 350F preheated oven until cheese is melted and lasagna is warmed through. 
๐ŸŒฎ Take out of the oven and add your favorite toppings. I like mine with sliced olives, tomato, avocado, cilantro and jalapeรฑo pepper.
๐ŸŒฎ The leftover taco meat and toppings did not go to waste of course. I used them to make a delicious tray of Nachos, which was a big hit too!
