Mexican Lasagna recipe

Most people think Italian when they hear the word “lasagna,” but this one may change your mind. Corn tortillas take the place of pasta in this Mexican-inspired dish. A meaty sauce of salsa, peppers, onions and corn brings it all together.

Substitute 2 pouches (1 cup each) frozen BOCA Ground Crumbles for the ground beef. Prepare as directed, adding the crumbles with the salsa, corn and seasonings. No need to cook first!
KEEPING IT SAFE
