Sounds amazing, right? No need to worry about the ingredients either, they are easy to find in any grocery store. The procedure is the same as though you are cooking the original version of an Italian lasagna recipe. Let me remind you that their only difference is that some of the ingredients used will add the Mexican flavor.
Want to know more about those ingredients I am talking about? Here is a little information. The Fajita seasoning that is included in the recipe is a combination of a mixture of chili powder, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. You might be wondering what these fajitas are anyway. A Fajita is a Tex-Mex cuisine term that commonly refers to any grilled meat that is usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. The Corn tortilla is a type of thin unleavened flat bread made from finely ground maize. Of course, aside from these two ingredients, there are other more that you will use to add the right spicy Mexican flavor. For added aroma and flavor, Oregano is used in this tasty recipe. This herb is widely used in culinary creations. Oregano is used for the flavor of its leaves that can be made more flavorful when dried than fresh. It has an aromatic, warm and slightly bitter taste and is also an anti fungal plant medicine. For the creamy taste, you will need to use the condensed cheddar cheese soup which is a product of Campbell’s, so that makes it easy. A lasagna dish would not be complete without the mushrooms though. You can use either an actual mushroom or golden mushroom soup. But based from my experience, an actual mushroom is preferred. Some people like the taste of the actual mushroom when combined in pasta.
Prepare your skillet for the cooking of the ingredients before they get layered into a lasagna. If you are not familiar with a skillet, this is a flat pan mainly used for frying, searing and browning of foods. The Mexican Lasagna recipe is oven cooked pasta dish so after you cook your ingredients in the skillet, the lasagna is them cooked it in the oven for 30 minutes or until you see the cheese bubbly. This recipe makes 6 servings so would be great for serving the whole family something they will absolutely love. So what are you waiting for? Imagine the amazing spicy Mexican flavour combined with your favourite lasagna noodles and all of that cheese! Casserole recipes like this one will always be a welcome sight. Casserole recipes make cooking dinner as easy as can be, what could be easier than putting a bunch of ingredients into a pan and letting it cook for thirty minutes?
