Mexican Lasagna is basically an American taco-style lasagna recipe. Taco lasagna is a really easy Mexican Style recipe that your whole family will enjoy.
This Mexican lasagna with flour tortillas is a nice way to change up Taco Tuesday.
Tonight for dinner we had Mexican taco lasagna that I made in my air fryer!
This recipe turned out great. This Mexican lasagna recipe is similar to my Instant Pot Taco Pie Recipe an absolute favorite in my family.
This air fryer Mexican lasagna was really easy and also delicious, and my family loved it. Especially my little one who wants my Taco Pie a few times a week.
Mexican Lasagna With Tortillas
We love Mexican style dishes in my home. Yesterday we had this Mexican Pizza In The Air Fryer which was inspired by the Taco Bell original. My Mexican pizza is with tortillas. But next time I may try it with Doritos or something.
What goes with Mexican lasagna?
We like to have Mexican lasagna as a stand-alone meal. Sometimes I like to add black beans or corn, maybe some sour cream and remaining cheese.
You can even crush some corn tortillas on top for a nice crunch. This Mexican casserole recipe is easy enough for the kids to help make.
But you can also serve as an appetizer or with other Mexican Style dishes. Like this Air Fryer Taco Bell Crunchwrap Recipe. Or Instant Pot Chicken Burrito Bowl for parties or gatherings like a super bowl party.
Can you freeze Mexican lasagna?
If you are into meal prepping, this is a great one to make ahead and freeze.
First brown your ground beef, or turkey in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Then add in your taco seasoning, I like to use this Homemade Old El Peso Taco Seasoning recipe.
You will layer everything, in the same fashion that you would with a lasagna. You’ll repeat layers of flour tortillas, refried beans, cheese, and your meat mixture.
You can also add corn, black beans, and sour cream. I skipped the corn and beans and topped my Mexican lasagna with crushed Doritos and sour cream.
Before freezing, allow to cool and cover tightly and place in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to cook, allow it to thaw and place it in the air fryer oven for
Taco Lasagna Recipe
Mexican lasagna is kind of an enchilada casserole or taco casserole. With any of these recipes, you can switch out the beef for chicken, turkey or even pork.
You can even use lasagna noodles. There are so many ways you can make this recipe your own. You can use spicy refried beans, add some diced tomatoes.
This Mexican Rice would be an amazing addition too.
I am really enjoying my air fryer oven, coming up I have a recipe for fruit roll-ups! And I did these zucchini chips too.
How To Make Mexican Lasagna
Cook your meat till it’s no longer pink. Grease a baking dish with olive oil and set it aside.
In your baking dish layer, enchilada sauce, a layer of tortillas, meat mixture, and cheese. Repeating until the shredded cheese is the last layer.
Bake in the oven until the cheese has melted. I like a ton of cheese. So I use about 1/2 cup per layer, but if you want you can definitely cut it a little.
If you rode the Instant Pot wave, and you haven’t gotten an Air Fryer, then you want to jump on it! It has been around a while now but it is really taking off now.
We had one of the first models and recently I upgraded to the Power Fryer Oven. I love the fact that I can dehydrate in it. I haven’t used the rotisserie function yet but it is on my list for this week.
We mix up our dinners with different cultures and flavors. I absolutely love using my air fryer and instant pot to make our meals.
Tabletop kitchen gadgets are convenient for working parents. Dinner can be done in a fraction of the time and tastes just as delicious as if you slaved over it.
