Mexican Lasagna?

Yes and it's really good.

My mom shared this recipe with me. It's a hit whenever I make it.
She found it in Woman's Day magazine back in 1986.

Beefy Mexican Lasagna

1 lb. ground beef (or turkey)
1 can (16 oz.) whole tomatoes, cut up
1 pkg. (1 1/8 oz.) taco seasoning
1 can (2.8 oz.) French fried onions
1 ctn. (12 oz.) cottage cheese
1 1/2 C. (6 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs, slightly beaten
12 (6 inch) flour or corn tortillas
1 tomato, chopped

In a large skillet, brown beef; drain. Add canned tomatoes (cut up) and taco seasoning; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 can French fried onions.

Oohh! That sounds good! I'll have to print this out and make it. With a 3-day weekend, I just might have time.

As Rachel Ray would say, "yumm-o"! We'll be trying this soon!

I have a chicken enchilada casserole that is fairly easy, and tastes authentic. If you're "clickable", and I can e-mail it to you, I will.

Your bunco nights sound too fun!
