Lasagna Olé

Here's a dinner recipe my Grandma provided for the Saturday Club of Rising Star, TX.  It's called Lasagna Olé, a Tex-Mex twist on lasagna.  It was really easy to put together and the flavors were great.

Here's what you'll need-

1 lb. hamburger meat
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (10 oz) can Ro*Tel
1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 pkg. taco seasoning,** or see recipe below
Salt & Black Pepper to taste
8 corn tortillas
1 cup (8 oz.) shredded cheddar
1 cup (8 oz) sour cream
(12 oz) slices Monterrey Jack cheese slices
(4 oz) shredded Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  I cooked the onion and meat together in a large skillet over medium heat.  When the onions had gone soft and the meat was cooked, I added the canned tomatoes and taco seasoning, stirring to incorporate all the ingredients.  Adjust seasoning with salt & pepper to taste.  I let this simmer for 10 more minutes.

Pour half the meat mixture into a casserole dish.  Layer tortilla rounds over meat, they will overlap some.  Spread sour cream over tortillas, then sprinkle cheddar on top of the smoothed over sour cream.

Pour the remaining meat mixture onto the sour cream and cheddar.  Spread it so that the meat mixture is set evenly.  Place Monterrey Jack cheese slices on top of meat and sprinkle Parmesan on top of that.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in oven.

A green salad would go nicely as a side for this meal.
