Mexican Lasagne

It’s like lasagne, but with a twist. I’d been thinking of making this for quite some time but was always put off by the fact the recipe is for eight people… but I decided to give it and go and reheat the leftovers for lunches later in the week. This recipe comes from Nigella Lawson’s Kitchen.

It’s pretty simply to make. Onions, pepper, chilli and chopped tomatoes make the sauce (plus a good glob of ketchup), and these are interspersed with a mixture of sweetcorn, black beans and cheese. You build up layers of sauce, beans and tortilla and then bake the whole thing in the oven.

It’s surprisingly tasty – helped in no small part by the vast quantities of cheese. Not sure how well it will reheat – the end result was wetter than expected, but still very tasty.
