Mexican Lasagna Recipe

1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed cheddar cheese soup
1/4 cup milk
1 package (1 ounce) fajita seasoning mix, divided
1 pound ground beef
1 can (10.75 ounces) condensed golden mushroom soup
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed dried oregano leaves
12 (5- to 6-inch diameter) corn tortillas
Chopped tomatoes, optional
Sliced green onions, optional

In medium bowl, stir together cheddar cheese soup, milk and half the fajita seasoning, mixing until mixture is smooth.

In skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef, crumbling with fork, until browned. Pour off any fat.

Stir mushroom soup, water, chili powder, oregano and remaining fajita seasoning into ground beef, mixing well.

Increase heat and bring mixture to a boil.

Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.

Spread 1 cup beef mixture over tortillas in dish. Add another layer of 3 tortillas and another cup of beef mixture. Repeat layers with 3 more tortillas and another cup of beef.

Top with remaining tortillas. Spread cheese soup mixture over tortillas.

Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbling. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle with chopped tomatoes and sliced green onions, if desired. Serve hot. Mexican Lasagna Recipe yields 6 servings.
