Lasagna is such a classic, it’s no surprise that a Mexican food version has entered the scene.

Layers of flour tortillas, taco meat, veggies, and, of course, cheese, make this dish gooey and delicious. It’s faster and easier to make than a full-blown taco bar. Plus, you can make it ahead of time and freeze it uncooked for a super quick dinner later.

One of the best parts of this dish is that it only takes 15 minutes to bake, a huge improvement from traditional lasagna’s hour-long cook time.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
