Tex-Mex Lasagna On The Go

What to take to work for lunch?  Tex-Mex Lasagna On The Go! Everyone with a busy schedule finds themselves in a culinary rut from time to time. The options tend to boil down to PB&J, left-overs or eat out. This can get rather boring. This Tex-Mex Lasagna On The Go recipe will give you a delicious lunch that heats up well in a microwave and is super easy to make. The bonus is that it will give you plenty of individual lasagnas (enough for 2 people) for the entire work week. Cook one time, get 10 meals. Not a bad deal!

 

You will need:

10- 12″ Sun-Dried Tomato Tortillas (you can use any other flavor, Sun-Dried Tomato gives this dish a little bit of warmth and flavor)

2 packages of Taco Seasoning

5-7 dashes of Hot Sauce (optional)

1/2 cup Frozen Corn Kernels

1/2 cup Water (Divided into 2 portions, 1/4 cup each)

5 cups Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese

1 package of Knorr Rice Sides Chicken Flavor (buy it Here)

1 lb. Ground Beef (or ground turkey)

10- 25 oz. Food Storage Containers (buy them Here)

 

Extra Toppings Suggestions: Sour Cream, Salsa, Guacamole, Lettuce, Jalapenos, Hot Sauce.

Extra Filling Suggestions (just add to the beef and corn mixture cooking stage): Black Beans, Pinto Beans, Bell Peppers, Onions, Jalapenos, etc.

 

Filling:

First thing first, mix together 1 package (not both) of taco seasoning with 1/4 cup of water in a large pot. Once mixed, add the ground beef (and any “Extra Filling Suggestions”).

Tip: If the filling is a bit dry (like you left it on the heat just a smidge too long), you can add a little water to the mixture. That should help!

Set aside to cool.

 

Assembly:

Take 1 large tortilla and tear it into 4 equal pieces.

Tips:

If you have any extra filling and don’t want to make more Tex-Mex Lasagna, use it for Burritos, Quesadillas,  Taco Salads, Tacos, Nachos, etc.

 

Enjoy!
