I'm always getting so many amazing recipes from this board, so I wanted to share my favorite! You can make it as healthy or as non-healthy as you want and it's still excellent. Freezes really well, too. My fiance begs for this!

Mexican Lasagne
1lb lean ground beef
½ c diced green peppers
½ c diced onion
1 package low sodium taco seasoning
2/3 c water
1 14oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 small can green chiles, undrained
6 burrito size tortillas (flour or whole wheat)
1 can fat free refried beans
3 c reduced fat cheddar or mexican blend cheese

Brown ground beef with onions and peppers. Drain any fat.
Add taco seasoning and water and simmer for 2 minutes. Then add tomatoes and chiles and simmer 10 minutes.
In a 9x13 pan, sprayed with non stick spray or greased, place 2 flour tortillas, overlapping in center. I like to cut the edges to fit, but you don’t have to. Spread with half the can of beans and top with half the meat mixture. Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese. Repeat the layers. End with 2 tortillas and top with last cup of cheese.

Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut with a very sharp knife. Makes 8 servings.

*If you’re a bean fan, you can also add a drained can of black beans to the meat mixture with the tomatoes.
