Taco Lasagna with Tortillas

Sharing is caring!

Taco Lasagna with Tortillas is an easy and delicious meal that comes together in under 60 minutes. No matter how busy you are, having a taco on the table before you get in the kitchen is a great idea. This meal is made with lean ground beef, jar salsa, cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, and taco seasoning mix. The result is an ultra-delicious meal that freezes well so you can microwave or heat up in 15 minutes. I like to serve this meal as an afternoon snack with a couple cold beers or a cup of hot tea.

It’s light and satisfying, without being too filling or filling too little. Best when eaten with a big salad ; however, it can be eaten alone as well. You may put your own variation on this dish as well. I have added fresh cilantro, red onion, and Mexican oregano on top along with
