This is not your mama’s weeknight casserole. Filled with so much flavor and Mexican-inspired flair, this Tex-Mex-style lasagna has texture, spice and so much personality. It's a comfort food that's got a nice layer of flavor without being too spicy for the kids too enjoy. It really is a winner any day of the week.
Technique tip: Do not add cheese before the foil is put on. The cheese will stick to the top of the foil. Wait until the end to add the cheese, uncovered.
Swap option: Can use ground turkey or ground chicken to replace ground beef.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 13x9 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.2.
Add ground beef (or turkey), onion, bell pepper and garlic in a large skillet until meat is cooked all the way through, then drain fat from the skillet.3.
Add both salsas, taco seasoning, and chicken stock. Allow the mix to cook for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the liquid evaporates and thickens somewhat. Remove from heat.4.
In a large bowl, combine meat mixture, sour cream, black beans, cream of mushroom and half of the cheese. Fold everything together.5.
Add about 2 cups of nacho tortilla chips to the greased casserole dish then top with half of the meat mixture in the bowl. Repeat the layers again until you end with the meat mixture then add another 2 cups of chips and then add the remaining cheese.6.
Cover with non-stick foil and bake for 30 minutes then remove the foil. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake, uncovered, until cheese is melted.7.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes then garnish and serve.
