Meatless Mexican Lasagna Recipe

Assemble this fun twist on lasagna for dinner, and your family will ask for it again and again. Instead of lasagna noodles, corn tortillas are layered between Mexican-style cheese and a Southwestern-style corn filling.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic, undrained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 4 corn tortillas (6 inches)
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 6 tablespoons plain yogurt


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Place two tortillas in an 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spread with half of the corn mixture; sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat layers.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Let stand for 5 minutes. Garnish each serving with a dollop of yogurt. Yield: 6 servings.

"Really good meatless meal,I doubled the recipe. Used low fat sour cream instead of yogurt. Held together nicely. I also used whole wheat tortillas instead of corn tortillas. Will definitely make again!"

"I didn't bother toasting tortillas and bought tostadas instead. The texture was perfect. I also added chicken. I will definitely make this again!"

"This was ok. I doubled the recipe and because I didn't have oregano, I used cilantro. I also used sour cream instead of yogurt. It had a nice flavor but the tortillas became quite soggy and didn't hold together at all. The serving ended up being a wad of lasagna on the plate. I have no idea how the picture looks so nice with the tortillas clearly in one piece. Maybe, like the other commenter, I should have toasted them first. If I make this again, I will probably just bake the mixture, top it with sour cream and shredded lettuce, and eat it with tortilla chips."

"This is super yummy! I did make a few modifications after we first tried it. I added only 1 tsp. of cumin and I also "toasted" my tortillas for a crunchy texture and used Sour Cream instead of yogurt..."
