Here’s a quick change to everyone’s favourite taco – make it into a lasagna! This is a make at home meal that freezes well and can be heated up in a microwave or lunch box stove.


  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 (1.25 ounce) packages taco seasoning mix
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 18 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  • 1 (24 ounce) jar salsa
  • 1 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Place ground beef in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown.
  2. Drain, then season with taco seasoning, garlic, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  4. Place 6 tortillas into the prepared baking dish. Spread 1/3 of the salsa on top of the tortillas. Spread 1/2 of the meat mixture evenly over the salsa.
  5. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the green onions. Drop 1/2 of the sour cream randomly over the green onions.
  6. Top with 1/2 cup Cheddar and 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese. Repeat layers. Top with 6 tortillas, spread with remaining salsa, and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes or until cheeses are melted.

Tip for Freezing

Cut into meal sized servings then wrap the individual squares in parchment paper and then in tin foil. This will keep the tin foil from sticking to the lasagna and make it easier to cook. It also doesn’t hurt to pack this into small freezer bags to help avoid messes in the truck fridge as the lasagna thaws.
