Mexican Lasagna.........John's Favorite

1 lb. ground beef, you can use 1/2 if you are cutting calories. It works.
3/4 cup onions, combine this with the hamburger when you are browning it.

After browned add:
1 16 oz. can of refried beans.
1/2 teaspoon oregano.
2 tsp. cumin
3/4 tsp. garlic powder

Next step:

12 uncooked lasagna noodles.
2 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups salsa

After above is cooked, add this to the top of the lasagna.

1 cup sour cream
1 small can of olives.
1/2 cup shredded mexican cheese.

Preheat oven to 350.

Brown hamburger, add the onion to the hamburger then add beans, oregano, cumin, and garlic powder.
Mix well, but you don't need to mix these together for long as long as your hamburger is cooked. This is just to combine them to add to the recipe.

In a large bowl, combine the salsa and water.

Put a small layer of the water/salsa mixture on the bottom of the pan.

Put 4 uncooked lasagna noodles down.
Spread the mixture on top of the noodles.
Add 4 more noodles.
Add more mixture.

Continue until you have used all 12 noodles.

Now dump the rest of the salsa/water mixture on top of the recipe.
Put aluminum foil on this and put it in the over and cook it for 90 minutes at 350.

Take it out and put sour cream, olives, and cheese on the mixture.

Spread over the top.
Bake for 10 minutes until the cheese melts.

Let it sit for 10 minutes and then it is ready to serve, it is important to let it sit, or it goes all over. I learned that when the missionaries came to eat.

Freeze for leftovers.
