Taco Lasagna

Taco Lasagna
I realized I never have uploaded this and seriously is the best thing ever! I love that I can make extra too and freeze it. Plus with a little taco sauce it goes great. Plus it reheats if you have leftovers the next day into delicious goodness.

1 lb ground beef, browned
1/2 cup chopped onion (I tend to omit)
1 packet taco seasoning
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes, not drained
1 14.5 oz can black beans, drained
1 16 oz can refried beans
6 flour tortillas
3 cups Mexican blend cheese (may add more if needed)

Brown beef and onions together. Drain mixture. Add tomatoes and black beans then sprinkle on taco seasoning. You may add a bit of water it if seems dry, but the tomatoes should have enough in them. Allow to simmer as you start the layers. In a 9x13 pan lay 2 shells (this is where I make 2 9x9s and only use 1 on the bottom) on the bottom of the pan. Then add some refried beans to the bottom. Then add some of the beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Repeat those steps with shells, beans, meat, cheese. Then the final layer will be the tortillas and then cheese on top. Allow to bake for 25-30 minutes at 350F. If freezing cover with aluminum foil. Allow to thaw during the day and then cook for 40-45 minutes or until middle is not cold. Enjoy!
