Ingredients

  • *1 pound extra lean ground meat
  • 2 teaspoons Taco seasoning
  • 1 (16-ounce) jar salsa (medium heat to spicy)
  • *5-ounce bag SIETE Foods grain free chips
  • *1 (8-ounce) bag Mexican shredded cheese (~ 2 cups)
  • 1.5 cups black beans, drained and rinsed
  • toppings - green onions
  • *substitutions provided below

Cooking Utensils

  • large skillet
  • 8 x 8-inch baking pan

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spoon a couple of tablespoons of salsa in the bottom of an 8×8-inch baking dish and spread over the bottom.
  2. Place the ground meat in a large skillet and set over medium heat. Break the ground beef into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Brown the beef for 5 minutes, then add in the taco seasoning and 1/2 cup water. Stir well, and simmer for another 2 minutes to thicken the sauce. Turn off the heat.
  3. Spread 1/2 the bag of Siete chips over the bottom of the baking dish. Press them down, breaking the chips, to create an even layer. Spread 1/2 of the taco meat over the broken chips. Then top with 3/4 cup black beans, 1/2 of the shredded cheese (~1 cup), and 1/2 of the salsa.
  4. Repeat with a second layer of the remaining pressed chips, taco meat,Β  black beans, 3/4 cup of shredded cheese, and salsa. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of shredded cheese over the top to cover the other ingredients.
  5. Bake for 25+ minutes, until the cheese is melted and the chips around the edges are very crisp. Sprinkle the top with chopped green onions or scallions. Cut the taco lasagna into 8 squares and serve warm!

 

Notes:

  • Vegan alternatives for chicken include Beyond Meat Beyond Beef, jackfruit, or lentils.
  • If you do not have access to Siete Grain Free chips, you can opt for standard corn tortilla chips.
  • Regular Mexican shredded cheese can be swapped for a dairy-free alternative.
