Day 1900 - Day NINETEEN HUNDRED? Good Grief!

Greetings, Bloggy TGIFers -

It's DAY 1900 of the blog, and it's Friday, Hooray! You know what to do, march in a circle chanting 'Fri-day! Fri-day! Fri-day!'

Here's the 'Mexican Lasagna' recipe for anyone who wants to make it.

Cook down 1-1.5 lbs of turkey, chicken, beef or pork in a large can of mild red enchilada sauce until it is falling apart and ‘shreddable’. Pull with a fork into shreds. This should be done the day before if you are serving this dish for a luncheon.

Add a little taco seasoning mix (prepackaged) to some pre-cooked white or brown rice (maybe 3 cups cooked rice)

Add some taco seasoning mix to a large chopped onion, and sauté it with a little oil or Pam spray.

1 can refried beans (or use black beans)

1 can kernel corn (or use creamed corn)

8 oz finely shredded mexican-style cheese

1 small can tomato sauce or diced tomato or Rotel if you want it spicy

3 large (1 each for bottom, middle, top) or 6 small tortillas (corn or flour or whole wheat), cut into smallish squares. The squares allow it to be easy to serve.


Cook your choice of meat in the enchilada sauce the night before, it should take 2-3 hours on the stovetop, or use leftover cooked chicken, pot roast, etc. Shred meat and refrigerate overnight, reserving any enchilada sauce still in the pan (I didn't have much left) Warm in micro prior to assembly.

Spray crock pot with nonstick spray.

Put a little tomato sauce at the bottom of the pot, then layer, starting with tortilla pieces, then rice, then refried beans, then corn, then onion, then meat, then tomato, then cheese.

Last layer top like lasagna – tortilla, tomato and cheese (you can put some green onion and black olives on top if you want to)

Cook for 4 hours (or until time to eat) on low.

Have a great Friday and a great weekend, everyone!

That sounds YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!! I want to make it now now now. Thank you Mom and Grammy for the cards. Mother's Day cards went in the mail yesterday...sorry if they arrive late!!! I stink. :)
Happy Friday!
Another thing I want to try is making a more italian form of lasagna in the crock pot with tortillas instead of noodles!

Heather, if you didn't get a package today it will arrive tomorrow!

Have a great weekend. Doug is coming tomorrow for a week, we'll spend one day in the wine country next week. I'll be working on my birthday, Monday but will hopefully have dinner at my favorite seafood restaurant for visitors, Scoma's. Happy Mother's Day to all!
Thanks for the recipe. I want to try it soon! To keep from getting bored, I'm trying to make one new meal each week. This will be one of them!

Thank you all who have or will send Mother's Day cards/gifts! It warms my heart! Heather, glad you rec'd your card. And Happy Mother's Day to all! Nancy, Enjoy both birthday and Mother's Day. Glad you can visit with Doug and Sharon.
