Mexican Lasagna

OK, so this might not be the cleanest meal you could make….but its definitely cleaner than grabbing a burrito from the local Mexican restaurant….or Taco Bell!  Just make sure to watch your portion sizes because with this meal, its easy to go overboard!

Ingredients:

  • 1lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (low fat)
  • 1 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1 cup of clean salsa
  • 1/2 cup of black beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 4 low carb whole wheat tortillas, cut into strips (I like the santa fe wraps from costco)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a skillet pan cook the ground turkey and onion until brown.  Once cooked turn to low and add salsa, black beans, taco seasoning and mix together.  Set aside
  3. In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese and the cup of cottage cheese .
  4. In a baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray, line the pan with 1/2 of the tortilla strips.  Scoop 1/2 of the meat mixture on top and spread out, covering the tortillas.  Then add 1/2 of the cheese mix on top of the meat and spread.  Repeat the layers again with remaining strips, meat, and cottage cheese.  Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Cover and bake for 40 minutes and enjoy!  Makes 4 servings at 350 calories each.
