What I really like about this recipe is that you can prepare it a day early and leave it in the fridge or freezer. All you would need to do is pop it in the oven and go about your day. About 40 minutes later you have one great meal.

Vegetarian Tex-mex tortilla lasagna ingredients

I made a vegetarian version but just add some minced meat and you have an authentic lasagna made out of tortilla. Funny thing is that when the lasagna has been into the oven you can not see the layers are made out of tortilla.

I make the sauce separately first. I use the following ingredients and a blender to create a great tomato sauce:

  • sieved tomato
  • cherry tomato
  • sliced roma tomato
  • garlic
  • red onion
  • white onion
  • 1/2 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tbsp cumin, oregano, paprika powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder, cayenne pepper
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp sugar

Then the filling. It is made of out of a lot of vegetables which I sauté in my skillet. I use the following ingredients:

  • garlic
  • red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 red onion

Further this recipe requires kidney beans, lentils and grated cheese. A good lasagna is all about the layers. I use 3 tortillas and cut them in 4 and start with tomato sauce then the sautéd vegetables, the kidney beans, lentils and grated cheese. Repeat until you have about 4 layer and finish with the tomato sauce and cheese.
