30 Minute Mexican Lasagna

Do you love cheese?  Do you love Mexican food? Do you also make an effort to cook healthy meals for you and your family? I am right there with you! When I found this 21 day fix approved Mexican Lasagna, I was intrigued.  Intrigued soon turned into OBSESSED after making it for the first time. Now, after having made it AT LEAST 20 times in the past year, I am HOOKED. Right here folks is my very favorite 21 day fix dinner recipe! Ingredients:
  • 1 package lean ground turkey
  • 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles (I use mild but if you like it spicy, go for medium!)
  • 8 ounces pico de gallo (I use Wegman’s freh pico – delish!)
  • 2 tbsp. taco seasoning (making your own is always best, but if you are in a pinch – be sure to get low sodium!)
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can black beans
  • 12 corn tortillas
Steps:
  1. Saute your ground turkey with the taco seasoning until it is a golden brown.  I do not use any oil, I simply spray my pan with cooking spray.
  2. After the turkey has browned, add in your can of drained/rinsed black beans, the fresh pico de gallo, and the Rotel tomatoes and chiles
  3. Stir together and let simmer so flavors mix.
  4. Next, lay six corn tortillas in the bottom of a 9X13 baking dish (they will overlap slightly).
  5. Scoop HALF the meat mixture onto the tortillas and spread out evenly.
  6. Top meat mixture with 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese.
  7. Repeat.  Six corn tortillas, meat mixture, cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cheese is melted.
Serve hot, and enjoy!  Makes 6 servings.   Note:  You can freeze left over serving by allowing them to cool in the refrigerator (this will make cutting and dishing them out MUCH easier!) and then wrapping individual or double servings in tin foil.  We usually eat 2 servings right after it’s out of the oven, and then save then freeze the remaining 4 for future meals! *Optional toppings:  Greek Yogurt, Franks Hot Sauce, Cilantro. 21 day fix container equivalents: 1 yellow 1 red 1 blue 1 green
