This is such an easy recipe. Because it contains flour tortillas it is only fitting to bake it in a skillet. It has the perfect size and what I like about a skillet is that it gets real hot.

You really need a super hot pan for this recipe. Because the cheese has to melt and the beef stew and lasagna sheet have to become one.

If you do not own a skillet you can make it in oven dish from glass or non stick. Just make sure it can handle some heat

So to make this skillet lasagna you need flour tortilla or when you are gluten free, replace them with corn tortillas as the lasagna sheets.

This recipe needs the best taco seasoning that you can easily make yourself. It adds some spice and flavor to your recipes and in this recipe especially.

How to make taco lasagna

To make this skillet lasagna we start out with a big skillet or cooking pan. Warm your skillet and brown your good quality lean ground beef in the skillet.

You do not need any oil or butter because ground beef contains a lot of fat so it will brown on its own. If you have a lot of excess fat drain it before you continue.

Finely dice a bell pepper, onion and minced garlic. Add it to the beef and pan fry so the vegetables go soft and translucent. Also finely dice the mushrooms and add these to the beef mixture. Stir for another couple of minutes. 

Sprinkle the taco seasoning on the beef mixture and stir it through the beef. Now add the sofrito tomato sauce. Stir and cover the beef before adding the water. Finally add 2 tablespoons of homemade pesto and stir. Let is simmer for 5 minutes.

Pre heat the oven at 450℉/225℃ and heat a cast iron skillet in the  oven while it is heating. Then it is time to stack the lasagna. Start with 3 to 4 tablespoons of the beef mixture and cover the skillet. Put a tortilla on top of the first layer of the beef mixture. Repeat these steps with the remaining two tortillas and the beef.  

Sprinkle the shredded cheese on the last layer of beef and cover the skillet with thin foil. Bake the skillet in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the thin foil and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Your taco lasagna is done. Serve immediately.
