Mexican Lasagna!!!

I love any type of Mexican cuisine, so this recipe was definitely a winner for me!!!  Surprisingly, my picky eaters also loved it!   This is a good recipe for feeding  a crowd, because it makes a lot and it's also great that you can assemble it all a day ahead of time!!!    This one can also be adapted to the tastes of your family.   I just let everyone garnish their own serving with the toppings they enjoy!!!  

Here is what you will need:

1 1/2 to 2 lbs. ground chuck or ground beef
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 (1 oz.) pkg. taco seasoning mix
1 cup water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1  (10 oz.) can Rotel
2  (10 oz.) cans enchilada sauce
9 large burrito size flour tortillas
2 cups frozen corn 
3 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

sour cream
sliced ripe olives
sliced green olives
sliced green onions
diced tomatoes
jalapeno pepper rings
chopped cilantro

Brown the ground chuck with the diced onion in a large skillet.  Drain any excess grease.  Add the taco seasoning and water, stir to blend.  Add salt, pepper, Rotel tomatoes, and corn.  Bring to a boil and then turn down to simmer.  This doesn't need to cook long, because you will be baking it.

Spray a 9" x 13 " baking dish with nonstick spray.  Spread 1/2 can of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan.  Lay 3 of the flour tortillas over the sauce. They will overlap and that is fine.  Spread  1 cup of each cheese over all and then 1/3 of the meat sauce.

Continue building the layers as you would for lasagna until all of the ingredients are used. 

 On the last layer finish the top with 1 cup each of the cheeses!    Place uncovered in a preheated 375 degree oven.    Bake for 25 -30 minutes.  

The cheese should be browned and bubbly!!!

Cut it in squares and set out the garnishes so everyone can top their own with what they like!!!  This is always a big hit when I serve it!!!
