I need to point out the fact that it was not snowing when I took this picture.
Extra points if you know what this picture is of. Moving target too fast for me.
Darling moment of my little cowgirl at a horse show...out of focus of course.
Totally cool bug....ended up being a totally buggin' picture instead.
The point I am trying to get to is that I am not a good photographer. I do try...I just am not good at it. So unfortunately, the food is the victim. The picture below of this delicious Mexican Lasagna just doesn't do it justice. But don't take it out on the lasagna..it's not it's fault. This is a yummy recipe for lasagnas south of the border cousin. I prefer to make it with chicken but you can make it with ground beef or even without any meat. Try it out, let me know what you think.
3 cups chicken, cooked and chopped
2 pounds ground beef, browned
1 cup cottage cheese
1 ½ cups pepper jack cheese, shredded
1 cup corn kernels
2 cups black beans
1 cup onion, diced
1 cup green pepper, diced
1 can diced tomatoes
½ cup taco sauce
½ cup diced chilies
½ cup sliced olives
¼ cup cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray. In a bowl, combine the meat, corn, onion, peppers, tomatoes, chilies, black beans, taco sauce, cottage cheese, salt, pepper, and cilantro. Spoon in enough of the mixture to cover the dish. Layer with tortillas and then cover with 1/3 meat mixture and 1/3 shredded cheese. Continue layering. Top with olives and additional chilies. Cover with aluminum foils and bake for 30 minutes. Let rest for a few minutes before serving.
I really did try to take a decent picture. I will keep practicing, if you keep reading!
By the way, it's not to late to weigh in on Monday's post, I have really enjoyed hearing what you have to say about how you you were fed, and how you feed those you love.
