This delicious Mexican Lasagna Recipe is very easy to make and Gluten Free!

When my oldest son was little, he had many health issues and was tested for Celiac Disease, among other things.

As part of the process of diagnosis/ruling things out, we tried a gluten-free diet for a while, to see if it helped him. For him, it didn’t seem to make any difference, but it made us sensitive to those in our circle who do need gluten-free meals.

I try to keep a variety of gluten-free recipes in my arsenal so that if we’re entertaining I know there is a meal I can make for everyone to enjoy!

This would make a wonderful dish to serve at potlucks since you never know who might need a gluten-free dish in the crowd. I hope your family and friends enjoy this dish as much as mine does.

1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning (Gluten Free)
1 16 oz can refried beans

2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
3 tomatoes, diced
1 medium onion, diced
18 white corn tortillas, cut in half
Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, cilantro, sour cream, guacamole, salsa

Mexican Lasagna

Layer tortilla halves, so straight edges line up along the outer edge of the dish.

Continue layering to fill any gaps (it’s ok if there is some overlap).

Continue layering the lasagna in the following order (saving enough of each ingredient to form a second layer): refried beans, enchilada sauce, beef and onion mixture, shredded cheese and diced tomatoes.

You may then sprinkle on fresh cilantro and/or black olives if you wish before starting the next layer.

Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is melted and tortillas have slightly crisped.
