Mexican Lasagna

Or Mexican La-ba-sagna as the princess calls it. Anyway, if you happen to love Mexican food and Italian food then this dish is just for you. And I have to give a shout out to my Aunt Kathleen for this one.

Mexican Lasagna

1 lb. ground beef (or turkey)
1 can refried beans
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. ground cumin
3/4 tsp. garlic powder
24 oz. jar of salsa
2 1/2 c. water
12 lasagna noodles
16 oz. sour cream
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

In a medium skillet, brown ground beef and drain. Then add in refried beans, oregano, cumin and garlic powder. Mix well.

Line bottom of 9x13" pan with four uncooked lasagna noodles. Top with half of the meat mixture. Add four more noodles and top with the rest of the meat mixture. Top that with four more noodles.

Mix 2 1/2 c. water with jar of salsa. Pour over top of noodles.

Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until noodles are tender. Remove from oven and spread sour cream over top. Sprinkle with cheddar chees and return to oven until cheese is melted - about 5 minutes.

I usually let mine rest a few minutes before serving. Then slice and enjoy!
