Mexican Lasagne

I’ve been wanting to make a mexican-style lasagne for a while now, and after googling for recipes I decided to do something along the lines of this recipe but with our beloved beany fajhita sauce.

It was easy to make, although it took about 1.5hrs from start to finish.

It was absolutely delicious & everyone loved it!  We will definately be making it again, although I will either be increasing the quantities or perhaps serving with potato wedges as DH & I would have liked more!

Serves 2 adults & 2 small children (but only just)


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded & chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tin tomatoes
  • 1 tin kidney beans
  • 1 (large) tin sweetcorn
  • 100g (ish) grated cheese
  • tortilla wraps – I used 6 mini wraps

to serve

  • salad
  • avocado


First, make the sauce

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C
  2. Heat the oil in a pan
  3. Add the onion & pepper
  4. Cover & cook for 7mins until tender but not browned
  5. Add the garlic & cumin seeds and cook for another 2-3mins
  6. Add the tomatoes & cook, uncovered for 15mins until thickWhile that cooks….
  7. Drain & mix the kidney beans & sweetcornWhen the sauce is ready:
  8. Spread some sauce on the bottom of an overproof dish
  9. Place a tortilla on top of the sauce
  10. Add a layer of beans & sweetcorn & scatter some cheese over the top
  11. Top with another tortilla and repeat the layering.
  12. Spread the last bit of sauce over the top of the last tortilla & sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top
  13. Bake for 30 minutes, and let it rest for 10-15mins before serving

    I came across your blog on MN. This dish is very tasty! Will make it in the future again. I have to freeze some leftovers today as I made a double portion 🙂
