Easily the most popular dish I make for my husband and his band, plus hangers-on. It can be doubled with no trouble, and is very much a simple crowd pleaser. I think the soy beef substitute gives a better flavor than ground beef, even though I'm not a fan of fake meats. Fools even the most voracious carnivore, which makes it a perfect dish to prove that meatless doesn't have to be tasteless!

Recipe Ingredients for Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna

3/4 lb Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles
16 ounce refried beans
1 1/4 ounce taco seasoning
2 cups salsa
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 tortillas

Recipe Directions for Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna

  1. Cook soy mince in a frying pan according to directions on packet. stir in the refried beans, taco seasoning packet and the required amount of water (usually 3/4 cup). Add a spoonful or two of the salsa.

  2. Spray a square casserole dish with oil. Lay one tortilla, a third of the mince/bean mix, spread a few tablespoons of salsa over and add some cheese.

  3. Repeat twice, covering the top tortilla with cheese.

  4. Bake in a pre-heated 180C oven for twenty or so minutes until heated through. I usually brown top under broiler to get super-golden brown.

  5. Serve with lots of sour cream and a salad made with a lemon juice vinaigrette. Or whatever you want!
