Beefy Mexican Tortilla Pie Recipe

If you are sick of preparing tacos all the time but want a distinctly Mexican inspired dish that the kids will love, then try this beefy Mexican tortilla pie! It is layered like a lasagne, but you use veggie-boosted taco mince and tortillas instead of tomato mince and lasagne sheets. Brilliant!

Serve it with a yummy fresh salsa made up of red onion, avocado, tomato and corn kernels and a simple green salad and you have a meal that is absolutely jam-packed with fresh vegetables. And let’s face it, it makes a nice change from plain old tacos!
