Mexican Lasanga

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb Ground Beef (up to 2 lbs can be used for beef lovers) - make this into Taco Meat and Keep seperate as you will be using it as a Mex Lasagna layer :)
  • Sour Cream tops this well. Plus Extra Cheese. Black Olives?
  • 1/2 onion or whole onion if you are balling! :)
  • 1 Chopped Green Pepper
  • I can Refried Beans.
  • Optional -some Taco Sauce to mix with beans
  • 1 can Rotel Hot with Habenero or regular or can of diced tomatos and can of green chilis as a replacement - undrained.
  • OPTIONAL - I can of Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 half of a big block of substitute velveeta cut into cubes.
  • A big package of corn or flour tortillas.
  • 2 Packages of Shredded Cheddar or Taco Mix Cheese.
  • A can of sliced black olives (however much you like used like a pizza topping)
Directions:
  • Saute the Chopped Green Pepper and Onion in some Olive Oil (a couple of splashes) and Butter over a medium hot flame, about 2 tsp of butter. Do that until the veggies get translucent.
  • Add the vegatables with whatever sauce remains in the pan to a big microwave safe bowl with the Refried Beans, Rotel Tomato or substitute, Cheese Blocks, taco sauce and optional cream of chicken soup and mix together
  • Heat the above mixture up to 10 minutes in the Microwave checking and stirring frequently or heat in a sauce pan over med high heat until cheese blocks melted and you get a cheese dip consistency - make sure you keep stirring this and adjust the heat as to not burn the bottom of the pan if you are on a stove. You just want to melt the cheese like a cheese dip into these ingredients at this stage.
  • In a big Lasagna type pan spray some non stick cooking spray.
  • Then chop up the Tortillas in Quarters and lay like 1/4 of what you want to use in in quarter tortilla shapes on the bottom layer of the pan until it covers the whole layer. Spoon in a quarter of your bean mixture, then add 1/4 of your taco meat, then 1/4 of your Cheddar Cheese.
  • Repeat the above steps until out of ingredients.
  • For an added treat add Black Olives to the top of the Casserole like a Pizza Topping.
  • Heat oven to 400 and bake for 30 minutes covered with foil, then remove foil and back for additional 10 minutes where cheese is golden brown.
  • Add sour cream on the top before serving for full effect, plus extra cheese.....
Enjoy!

Notes:

  • Canned Black Beans (Drained) as a substitute for the Refried Beans is also good in this.
  • You can also never go wrong adding a can of cream of chicken soup to the bean cheese layer either :)
  • Good stuff but definitely not low calorie. Substitute Fat Free Cheese and Sour Cream, use good oil and watch the saute with the butter you use. Consider ground Chicken or Turkey as a replacement for the beef here. That will cut the calories and fat of this dish.

    How come you're so into recipes lately? Never saw this much interest in this topic in the old days of TH.net

    Hmm, how do I change my signature?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
