Tex-Mex Lasagna

DSC_9787 (1600x1060)I may be in trouble for calling this lasagna because no pasta is involved, it uses corn tortillas between layers of refried beans, salsa, beef, and cheese.  Cook a pound of ground beef down with minced peppers and onions and season with taco spices and add a can of tomato bits with green chilies.  Add chicken stock to a couple of cans of rinsed pinto beans and mash them down over medium heat.  The beans play much the same role as ricotta in an Italian lasagna, spread the refried beans over warmed corn tacos, spoon on your favorite salsa, then spread the beef atop that, and then cheese.  I used cheddar but Monterey jack would work, or a combination.  Repeat the layering until you run out of room in your casserole.  Any kind of luck your makings will run out the same time as the room in the dish.
