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.

SERVING SUGGESTION
Serve with a mixed green salad for added color and texture.
BOCA MEXICAN LASAGNA
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
Be sure to thaw frozen ground beef safely. Keep the meat wrapped and thaw it, on a plate, on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. Do not thaw the meat on the countertop.

I've never seen this before.  I think my family would like it without the cottage cheese.
