Dutch Oven Tortilla Lasagna

Perfect for a Mexican inspired camp meal this Dutch oven tortilla lasagna is a great main dish packed with flavor.

The tortillas replace the traditional pasta used in lasagna in line with the Mexican theme. You may use any style tortillas when making this, the use of corn tortillas will make it gluten-free.

Although this recipe uses a scratch-made taco-style beef layer it could also use leftover chili for additional flavor. When serving, consider accompanying with a salad to lighten the meal and using traditional Mexican sides like guacamole, sour cream, and pico de gallo.

Ingredients

Taco Ground Beef

4 pounds ground beef (2 kg beef mince)

4 tablespoons Mexican seasoning

1 brown onion, finely diced

2 cloves garlic, crished

To Assemble

6 tortillas

3 cups salsa

4 cups Mexican Cheese

Equipment

pot

12 inch Dutch oven

Recipe Directions

  1. In a pot add the ground beef and Mexican seasoning. Stir while cooking until all turned brown.

  2. Add the diced onion and the crushed garlic then continue cooking until the onion is transparent. Put aside until needed.

  3. Start to assemble the layers of the lasagna. Start on the base with a tortilla, then the taco beef, then one cup of cheese, then a tortilla, then a cup of salsa. Repeat the pattern 3 times.

  4. Having finished three complete layers top with the last cup of cheese.  

  5. Set the Dutch oven to cook at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). This is done with 8 charcoal briquets on the bottom and 17 on the top.

  6. Cook for 45 minutes, this is typically the burn time of one set charcoal briquettes. As all the ingredients are cooked the main goal is to heat through and melt the cheese. Let sit for 10 minutes after cooking to set slightly before removing from the Dutch oven and slicing to serve.

    Tip: Do not slice in the Dutch oven as it is possible to damage the seasoning.
