Mexican Lasagna

This is a big hit. Everybody loves Mexican food, right?

And seeing yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, I wanted to make a Mexican feast to celebrate. I'm like that.

Any excuse for cooking will do. You got a promotion? I'll make a cake. Found a pair of shoes you love? Celebratory cookies for you. Other countries' national holidays? I'm right there with the pumpkin pie.

It doesn't photograph well, but it tastes damn good and is super-easy. Can be doubled.

Ingredients:
1 packet veggie soy crumbles (I use Sanitarium Veggie Mince)

1 can refried beans

1/8 teaspoon each of basil, garlic powder and cumin

1 jar salsa

1 1/2 cups cheese

four tortillas


Method:

1. in an oiled pan over medium heat, break up the crumbles.

2. sprinkle over the herbs and spices, and add a tablespoon or two of salsa.

3. Mix in the refried beans.

4. Spray a square casserole dish with oil, spread over another tablespoon of salsa. Lay one tortilla on top.

5. Put half the crumble/bean mix on, top with 1/3 salsa and 1/3 cheese.

6. Repeat.

7. Top with tortilla, the rest of the salsa and the rest of the cheese.

8. Bake in a 180C oven for 30-45 minutes, until heated through and cheese is bubbling.

Arrriba!
