Mexican taco lasagna is a flavorful twist on the classic Italian dish, combining layers of seasoned ground beef, salsa, cheese, and tortillas. Here’s a simple recipe to make this delicious and comforting meal:


  • – 1 lb ground beef
  • – 1 onion, diced
  • – 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • – 1 packet taco seasoning mix
  • – 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • – 1 cup corn kernels (fresh, frozen, or canned)
  • – 1 cup salsa
  • – 1 can (4 oz) diced green chilies
  • – 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • – 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • – 8-10 small corn or flour tortillas
  • – Optional toppings: sliced jalapenos, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, sour cream, chopped cilantro, avocado slices, lime wedges


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until browned and crumbled. Drain any excess grease from the skillet.

3. Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet with the ground beef. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onion is softened.

4. Stir in the taco seasoning mix, black beans, corn kernels, salsa, and diced green chilies. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until heated through and well combined. Remove from heat.

5. Arrange a layer of tortillas on the bottom of the prepared baking dish, tearing them into pieces if needed to fit. Spoon half of the beef mixture over the tortillas, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheddar cheese and half of the shredded Monterey Jack cheese over the beef mixture.

6. Repeat the layers with another layer of tortillas, the remaining beef mixture, and the remaining shredded cheeses.

7. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

8. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.

9. Remove the Mexican taco lasagna from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.

10. Serve the taco lasagna hot, garnished with your favorite toppings such as sliced jalapenos, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, sour cream, chopped cilantro, avocado slices, and lime wedges.
