Taco Lasagna #McCormicksTacoNight Sponsored

by superexhausted on May 10, 2013

Taco Lasagna I was asked by McCormick to create a recipe with 5 ingredients for Taco night.  I was compensated to create this recipe, the spices we provided by McCormicks, and  the opinions in this post are all mine.  So it was a challenge to reinvent what Taco night and to make it with limited ingredients was even harder. I wanted to make an easy recipe that could be prepped ahead, quickly assembled,  and heated up on taco night.

I love taco night but sometimes the prep is a ton of work.  What I like to do is make dbl batches of Taco meat then freeze 1/2 for later use. Long as you freeze the meat once it is cool, in freeze bag, flat on a tray,  and make sure it is loose(crumbly) then it is easy to reheat.  So avoid the solid block of meat when freeze cooked taco meat.   The McCormick taco season freeze great when make larger batches of meat be sure to use more then one package of McCormick seasoning.

  • 5 Soft Flour Large Tortillas (to fit your saute pan so 10″)

Holy cow. First, I’m genetically programmed to click on ANYTHING that combines the words “taco” and “lasagna.” Second, I made a really loud Homer Simpson sound upon seeing that photo. Third, when are you inviting me over to eat this?? :) I have to find safe dairy free cheese to make this for my family, Sherry, wow.

This looks SO good. SO GOOD. I want to eat it right now. I think I might ask my husband to make this for my Mother’s Day dinner!

Holy Taco Lasagna! Now this is my kind of food. I might change out the black beans for refried beans though. Saving this for a family dinner.
