Jordan's Mexican Lasagna

I have this friend from high school, we still keep in touch, but live too far away to see each other (which makes me sad. Yay for Facebook!)

She is an amazing mother. She has 4 babies and has one step son.
It's one of those amazing relationships where you would never know he was a step, she loves him as much as her own flesh and blood.
This does not surprise me though, she is good folk.

My friend is always playing around in the kitchen making super fun and healthy foods.
(no, I am not implying this recipe is "healthy"!)

The oldest sprout was there and told her he wanted her to make a certain meal. So, being awesome x's 100, she had him dictate...and she cooked.

1 Lb ground beef
1 Pkg taco seasoning
1 Large onion (diced)
1 ½ Cup cooked rice
Corn tortillas
1 Can diced tomato with chilies
1 Cup cheddar cheese
1 Can cream of chicken soup

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Brown hamburger with onions
3. Add taco seasoning
4. Mix rice with cream of chicken soup
5. Layer the bottom of a 9x13 pan with corn tortillas
6. Add layer of ground beef
7. Layer of rice
8. Layer of cheese
9. Layer of corn tortillas
10. Layer of ground beef
11. Layer of rice
12. Layer the remaining cheese
13. Top with diced tomatoes
14. Bake for 20 minutes
15. Serve with assorted toppings: Sour Cream, Cilantro, Lettuce, Etc


I got to use up a few bags of cheese I had hanging around, BONUS!
