Fiesta Lasagna

When I saw this I could not wait to try it. It's a Mexican spin on a dish we all love. It can be found on page 119 of "Taste of Home Best Loved Classics, All New Favorites".

1lb Ground Beef
1/4 Cup Chopped Onion
1(16 oz) Can Re fried Beans
1(15 oz) Can Chili Beans
1(14 oz) Can Stewed Tomatos
1 Cup Salsa
1(4 oz) Can Chopped Green Chilies
1 Envelope Reduced Sodium Taco Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 1/4 Cup Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1 1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
3/4 Cup Cottage Cheese
1 1/4 Cup Sour Cream Divided
9 Cooked Lasagna Noodles
1. Brown ground beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, then drain.
2. Transfer ground beef to a large pot, stir in re fried beans, chili beans, tomatoes, salsa, chillies, taco seasoning, oregano, cumin, and garlic powder. Stir until well mixed.

3. In large bowl, combine the Monterey Jack and Mozzarella cheeses; set aside 1 cup. Stir in cottage cheese and 3/4 cup sour cream into cheese mixture.

4. Spread 1 cup meat sauce into greased 13x9 baking dish. Layer with 3 noodles, and a third of the cheese mixture and meat sauce. Repeat the layers twice. (Dish Will Be Full)

5. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Uncover spread remaining sour cream on top and cover with reserved cheeses. Bake for 10 additional minutes. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving.

So this was amazing! It's really hard to explain how good it tasted, it was like a burrito and enchilada all rolled into a neatly baked tasty dish. I will rate this a 6 on the skill level scale, just know that it takes a good 30 mins just to get this prepared for the oven. This made a lot and would be a good dish to bring to a pot luck, if you do everyone will be wanting to try it.

If you love someone, cook them tasty food. :)
