Got tortillas?


I somehow ended up with an abundance of tortilla shells recently and remembered a recipe that is sort of like a Mexican Lasagna that would help use up some of them. I used to make this quite often when all the chiildren were at home. It had been a while since I had made it for just the two of us. We really enjoyed it and decided it needs to be included in the meal rotation again. The recipe came from Betty Crocker many years ago.

Tortilla Casserole

1/2-1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
1 can cream of chicken soup
4-6 tortillas cut or torn into about 1" pieces
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Cook and stir the ground beef and onion until the beef is brown and onion is tender. Drain thoroughly. Spread half the salsa in the bottom of a 8" x 8" square casserole dish. Mix the remaining salsa, yogurt (or sour cream), beef mixture and chicken soup. Layer half the torn tortillas, half the soup mixture,and half the cheese on top of the salsa. Repeat the layers. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and then let the casserole stand for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and black olives, if desired. Serves 4-6.

    Hi Becka, i absolutely LOVE anything Mexican, but we have men in the family who don’t like “gloppy.” Sadly, the yogurt and soup seem to make this of the gloppy variety. So maybe I could try a smaller version for lunch when they’re at work. 🙂 It sounds good to me!

    That dish looks and sounds delicious! I have a similar recipe without the salsa but with taco seasoning and additional cheddar cheese. I think the salsa will add a nice flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

    “Mexican Lasagna” says it all. It sounds totally delicious. I wish I could find those little grape shaped tomatoes here.
