Enchilada Lasagna

This is a recipe I've been making for a while. I originally got it from a Men's Health magazine. I've made many mods to it over the years according to taste, to lower it in calories, etc. Here's the original Men's Health link:

  • 1⁄2 lb extra lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup Fat free shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can rotel (you can use 1 cup diced tomatoes and some chopped jalapenos instead)
  • 1 cup fat free cottage cheese
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 6" corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup Taco Bell mild sauce (or canned enchilada sauce)


  1. Brown the beef in a nonstick skillet. Let it cool, then combine it in a bowl with the cheese, rotel, cottage cheese, chili powder, and garlic powder, stirring well.
  2. Coat an 11" x 7" baking dish with cooking spray. Place two tortillas in the dish and top with half of the beef mixture. Layer two more tortillas, then the remaining beef mixture. Place the last two tortillas on top, pour taco sauce over them. You can OPTIONALLY sprinkle with 1/4-1/2 cup shredded cheese cheese, but it changes the nutrition.
  3. Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes.
