Mexican Lasagna


Delicious layered Mexican pie. Delicious layered Mexican pie.
Number of Servings: 15


    6 whole-wheat tortillas
    1 lb extra lean ground turkey (97% fat free)
    1 4-oz can green chiles
    1 can fat free refried beans
    1 can black beans
    1 can no salt added corn
    4 cups reduced fat fiesta blend shredded cheese
    2 cups salsa
    1 small can sliced black olives
    1 green onion, chopped
    cumin, chili powder, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper to taste


In skillet, brown turkey meat. Add green chiles. Season to taste with cumin, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside. In a large glass Pyrex baking dish, lay two tortillas flat, side by side, doing your best to cover the bottom of the dish. Spread the refried beans across the bottom. Spread half of the cooked meat over the beans, and cover with cheese. Lay down two more tortillas, and spread black beans and corn evenly over the tortillas. Top with meat, then more cheese. Lay down last two tortillas. Cover with salsa and remaining cheese, then sprinkle olives and green onion over the top. Bake in the oven until heated throughout and cheese is bubbly. Cut into 15 pieces (or more, if you like).

    I made this dish for a potluck at work. It was a hit. Everyone ate it up. We added sour cream and shredded lettuce to the side. - 3/24/10

  • This recipe was very filling and delicious! For a simpler and less spicy version, I cut out the green chiles and substituted one package of taco seasoning for the spices. The cooking directions are vague, but I baked at 350 for about 30 to 35 minutes and everything turned out great. - 2/3/14

  • My family enjoyed this, I added rotel instead of salsa, used fat free cheddar cheese and my local grocery only had flour tortillas. I also mixed a can of rotel in the ground turkey and used taco seasoning, nobody knew it wasn't ground beef! Win for me! - 11/4/13

  • This was very good. I over-cooked it a tad bit because I couldn't find any temp/time instructions. My husband said he liked it but would probably like it better without the corn. We'll definitely make it again but tweak it a little to our tastes. - 9/20/09

  • I tried this recipe tonite and it was spectacular! I did tweak it a bit, like I alway do and added some fresh summer squash to the mix and mashed my own pinto beans and added fresh cliantro and avocado at the end. I love vegtables... I highly recomend if you are craving the taste of a burrito! - 9/9/09

  • My husband and I loved this recipe. It was so yummy. I didn't buy enough of the fiesta cheese... so, I put 2 slices of american cheese on top. And, like the other person who commented, I threw on some jalapenos... I'll definately be making this again. - 8/14/09

  • What a great tasting twist on lasagna! Everyone really loved the bend of flavours and wonderful texture - I added a layer of hot peppers to spice things up for our personal taste buds. - 8/12/09
