Mexican Lasagne Recipe

Cowbridge Kitchen

A Mexican Lasagne is a strange mix of two cuisines, Mexican & Italian.

The basic idea behind the Mexican Lasagne is the same as the Italian Lasagne, layers of Ragu but separated with Tortilla wraps instead of pasta.

In this recipe we use Tortilla Wraps in place of Pasta Sheets and the Beef is cooked in an Iconic Mexican sauce called Mole. Mole is the national dish of Mexico so it is worth getting this right for an authentic Mexican taste.

You could use a Tex-Mex Chilli for this recipe if you want to add an extra twist the the dish.

    How To Make Mexican Lasagne

    Mexican Lasagne is also known as Taco Lasagna or Mexican Casserole. It is very much like a traditional lasagne but it is layered with Tortilla Wraps and not Pasta sheets.

    The Bolognese in this recipe is made with minced beef but you can use minced turkey instead.

    For an added authentic taste the recipe uses 'Mole' which is the national dish of Mexico.
