Mexican taco lasagna

Mexican taco lasagna is a delicious twist on traditional lasagna, incorporating classic taco flavors into layers of pasta, meat, cheese, and sauce. Here’s a simple recipe to make Mexican taco lasagna at home:


  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 packet (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) corn kernels, drained
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies, drained
  • 12-14 lasagna noodles, cooked according to package instructions
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for cooking


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with olive oil and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the ground beef or turkey to the skillet, breaking it up with a spatula, and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes. Drain any excess fat.
  4. Stir in the taco seasoning mix, black beans, corn kernels, diced tomatoes, and diced green chilies. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Remove from heat.
  5. Spread a thin layer of salsa over the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  6. Arrange a layer of cooked lasagna noodles over the salsa.
  7. Spread half of the meat mixture over the noodles, then sprinkle half of the shredded cheese over the meat.
  8. Repeat the layers: noodles, remaining meat mixture, and remaining shredded cheese.
  9. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until the top is lightly golden brown.
  11. Remove the lasagna from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
  12. Garnish with dollops of sour cream and chopped fresh cilantro before serving.

This Mexican taco lasagna is a crowd-pleaser and perfect for family dinners or gatherings with friends. Serve it with additional salsa, guacamole, or your favorite taco toppings for an extra flavor boost. Enjoy!
