A delicious recipe for all those who crave EASY and Mexican food. You can easily adjust this recipe to fit your needs in the "spicy" department.  We make a double or triple batch and bless families in our community with a dinner...all done :)

A great recipe utilizing delicious Wildtree created/modified over the years by Stephanie Batson.

Ingredients for Wildtree Mexican Lasagne
2 tsp Wildtree Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil
1 Small yellow onion, chopped
1 Tbs chopped garlic
1 14oz can diced fire-roasted tomatoes (we use the Aldi brand and they are AMAZING)
4 tps Wildtree Taco Blend (powder) (divided)
1-2 Tbs. Wildtree Taco Sauce (to taste)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tsp red pepper flakes (OPTIONAL)
1/2 lb ground beef, chicken or turkey (We LOVE turkey!)
2 tsp Wildtree Absolutely Onion
1 tsp Wildtree Rancher Steak Rub
1 15oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 package of tortilla shells (I love the corn, but you can use flour too!)
2-4 cups of shredded cheese (You can limit or go all out on the cheese)

Preheat oven to 350*

Heat oil in a large nonstick pan. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened. Add garlic, cook for one more minute. Add the tomatoes,  2tsp Wildtree Taco Powder and then some Taco Sauce to taste. Add red pepper flakes, if you want it a little spicy. Sprinkle some chopped cilantro. Simmer on low until meat mixture is complete.

Meanwhile, add ground meat to another pan. Cook through. Add Wildtree Absolutely Onion and Rancher Steak Rub. Add 2 tsp of Wildtree Taco Powder and 3 Tbs of water. Stir well. Add black beans and cook through.

Add 1/4 cup of Tomato Sauce to the bottom of a greased 9X13 pan. Layer 2-3 tortilla shells on top. Add a cup of meat mixture on top of the tortilla shells, Tomato Sauce on top, then some shredded cheese (as you like). Continue layering until you run out of ingredients. Top with EXTRA shredded cheese and some cilantro.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted! (If you share with a neighbor or friend, then let THEM bake it. It will be perfectly yummy and fresh :)

Assembling multiple trays!
Of course, if you don't like onions or black beans, you can always use peppers with  pinto beans--or whatever your family likes! This recipe is very easy, forgiving and you can make quite a few trays quickly.
