TO MAKE THIS MEXICAN TACO LASAGNA, YOU ONLY NEED FEW SIMPLE INGREDIENTS THAT WE ALL HAVE IN OUR PANTRIES:
6-inches Soft flour tortillas, you’ll need approx. 12.
2 pounds.Of ground beef.
Two taco seasoning packets.
2 medium diced tomatoes.
A large diced red onion.
One medium diced green onion.
A chopped Jalapeño, it’s optional.
Salt, to taste.
Heavy whipping cream, I used two full cups.
2 large spoons. Of soft butter.
3 divided Cups.Of shredded Mexican-style cheese.
A small spoon and half of Cajun seasoning.
FOR GARNISH, I ONLY USED TWO INGREDIENTS, BUT YOU CAN BE CREATIVE AND ADD MORE FOR A COLORFUL DISH:
Diced green onions.
AND THIS IS HOW TO MAKE IT FROM SCRATCH, ALL YOU NEED IS TO FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW AS DIRECTED:
I started the preparation by combining the red onions, with green diced onions, jalapeño pepper, tomatoes in a medium mixing bowl and I seasoned using salt. I set the bowl aside for later.
Next, I browned the ground beef in a large pan and drained well the excess fat, then I sprinkled the taco seasoning over the meat and mixed well.
After that, I brought the heavy cream with softened butter to a boil in a medium saucepan, whisking constantly until thickened.
I took the pan off the heat and added 2 cups of shredded cheese, seasoned with Cajun spice, and kept it warm.
At this step, I layered: four tortillas, after I cut them to fit the bottom of the dish, the cooked ground beef, shredded cheese, and tomato mixture in a 9.13-inches casserole.
And I repeated the layers until three layers are formed, concluding with the cheese sauce on the top.
Following that, I added the remaining cup of cheese on the top of the layers, and I placed the dish covered in a 400 degrees oven for around 20 minutes.
Once done, I removed the dish from the oven and let it cool, for serving, I garnished each plate with sour cream and green chopped onions.
Everybody will be holding their forks in anticipation as dinner is finished in record time. It fills the whole kitchen with a wonderful smell! Stomachs will be rumbling with anticipation…
