{Mexican Lasagna}

Quick, easy, and good. Need I say more? This twist on lasagna is a fun meal that your kids will love.

Here's what you need:

1 Pound Ground Beef
1/2 Cup Chopped Green Pepper
1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
2/3 Cup Water
1 Envelope of Taco Seasoning
1 15 oz. Can of Black Beans, Drained & Rinsed
1 14.5 oz. Can of Mexican Style Diced Tomatoes
6 Flour Tortillas (8 inch)
1 16 oz. Can of Refried Beans
3 Cups Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese

In a large skillet, cook the beef, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is browned, then drain. Add water, taco seasonnig and bring to a boil. Add black beans and tomatoes, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Spray a 13"x9" baking dish with cooking spray and place two flour tortillas in the bottom. Spread with 1/2 can of refried beans. (For easier spreading heat the refried beans a little.) Add 1/2 of meat mixture and top with 1 cup cheese. Repeat order. Top with the last two flour torillas and the remaining 1 cup of cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. Enjoy!
