And Then He Wept (Mexican Lasagna)

If this meal were a person, I believe that we would be best friends. It has all of the qualities I look for in a friend: warm, comforting, reliable, cheesy. After the Monday night Koosa debacle, I was in great need of a success in the kitchen.

This meal is famous in the Alexander world. There may or may not be a person who may or may not be married to someone in my immediate family who may or may not have been found late one night sitting on the kitchen floor eating this. Weeping. Weeping. That is how good this stuff is. Seriously. Try it, you'll agree. And then you'll weep.


Mexican Lasagna

1 lb lean ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 can Rotel, drained
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1 small can of tomato sauce
2 packages taco seasoning
6 whole wheat tortillas
2 cups weight watchers Mexican cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown mean and onion. Add Rotel, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning - combine well.

Spray a 9x13 inch dish with cooking spray. Place two tortillas in the bottom of the dish, top with some of the turkey mixture, follow with cheese. Repeat two more times.

Cover with foil, bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil, bake for 10 more minutes.

This recipe was lightened up from the original version. If you are interested in making the husky version replace the turkey with ground beef, the wheat tortillas with jumbo flour ones, and the two cups of cheese with five cups.
