This layered taco lasagna recipe is more of an easy Mexican casserole, full of taco seasoned beef, tomatoes, onions, a cheesy sauce and flour tortillas.
Happy Wednesday Folks!! How did #NationalTacoDay almost get by me this year?!?!?!? So I’m a few days late but just had to share this Amazing Taco Lasagna Recipe with you. After all, taco day is everyday in my world!! How about you?
I must be honest. SHHHHHHH. This really isn’t a lasagna. It’s really a taco casserole with tortillas that I just call a taco lasagna recipe because it’s kind of like a lasagna set up to me. Does that make sense? Probably not. Anyhow….this Taco Lasagna Recipe is not for anyone looking to watch their waistline guys! It’s totally just the most perfect comfort food recipe on earth. Don’t cry. It’s ok every once in a while.
