Brandie @ The Country Cook
packet taco seasoning
can refried beans
jar mild salsa
jar alfredo sauce (or queso sauce)
Mexican blend shredded cheese
sliced black olives,sliced green onions, taco sauce, sour cream
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef. Drain excess grease. Place cooked beef back into the skillet.
Over medium heat, add water and taco seasoning and stir.
Then stir in refried beans. Mixture will be very thick. Once refried beans have softened and mixture is combined, turn off heat.
Preheat oven to 350f degrees. Spread about ¼ cup of salsa into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
Place a single layer of lasagna noodles on top of salsa (about 3 noodles - depending on size of your oven-ready lasagna noodles).
Evenly spread a third of the ground beef mixture on top of the noodles.
Then evenly spread a third of the alfredo sauce on top of ground beef.
Next, dollop about ¼ cup of the salsa on top.
Then sprinkle about ½ cup of shredded cheese.
Continue these steps two more times (lasagna noodles, ground beef mixture, alfredo sauce, salsa and cheese.)
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 35-45 minutes.
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before serving. This will make it easier to slice.
Slice and top individual servings with sour cream, sliced green onions or whatever taco toppings you prefer!
This can be made with tortillas instead of lasagna noodles but I think the lasagna noodles ended up being our favorite. It slices up easier as well.
Make sure to use the oven ready lasagna noodles or else you'll need to cook the noodles first.
Instead of Alfredo sauce you can use queso cheese dip.
My favorite way to top this is with sour cream, sliced green onions and diced tomatoes.
