The Beauty in the Beef

For the love of South Dakota Beef

Beefy Mexican Lasagna


Ask and you shall receive. “Healthy Hotdish” won our Facebook poll this week for what type of recipe to feature next on the blog.  So we created a “Beefy Mexican Lasagna”!  Serve this recipe as a weeknight meal or for entertaining guests!  Your friends and family will never know that it’s incredibly simple and quick to put tougher (don’t worry, we’re not telling!).  Oh, and did we mention it’s full of nutritious ingredients and low in fat? #winning

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg Mrs. Dash taco seasoning
1 Cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
1 Cup black bean and corn salsa
1 can fat-free refried beans
4-5 whole wheat tortillas
1/2 Cup shredded cheese
Freshly chopped tri-colored peppers
Cilantro for garnish

1. Brown ground beef, draining and rinsing any excess fat. Add Mrs.Dash taco seasoning with 3/4 Cup water. Reduce heat and let simmer.

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
3. In a saucepan, combine Greek yogurt, salsa and refried beans.  Cook for 3-4 minutes over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.

4. Coat a 9×9 baking dish with cooking spray and line the bottom with a tortilla. Add ground beef, salsa mixture and top with a light layer of shredded cheese and peppers. Repeat until you have reached the top of your dish. ( I was able to make 4 layers) 



5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until bubbly on top.


6. Let cool for 5 minutes.  Add chopped cilantro prior to serving.

7. Enjoy!
