PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"OTCC: Southwest Lasagna"
Posted by arkiegrl on 01-14-11 at 11:08 AM
I got this from a community cookbook that I bought years ago, when I still lived in Arkansas.

Original recipe:
2 pounds ground beef
2 Tbsp oil
4 tbsp onion, chopped
3 cups water
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 cloves garlic
1 (12 oz) can tomato paste
1 1/2 lb Jack cheese, grated (note: for more fire,substitute hot pepper Jack)
1 (7 oz) can whole green chilies
1 1/2 lb Longhorn or Cheddar cheese
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin (optional)
1/4 tsp cayenne (optional)
2 pkg. lasagna noodles (8 oz)

Brown meat in oil with onion and garlic. Drain off excess oil. Add tomato paste, water, salt, sugar and other spices. Simmer for 30 minutes or longer. cook lasagna noodles as directed. Layer noodles, sauce, green chili strips and the two cheeses into a 10 x 15-inch pan or casserole dish. Bake 30 to 40 minutes at 350. Let set 10 minutes. Serves 8 or more.
Note: For a smaller serving, cut recipe in half and cook in a 9 x 13-inch. dish. For a lower fat content, reduce amount of cheese.

Since I was the only one who would be eating this, and didn't think I would want more than a week's worth of lasagna, I cut the recipe in half and did the 9x13 dish, except I didn't cut the amount of cayenne in half and I did substitute pepper jack for the jack cheese. In my household, cayenne is not optional, it's mandatory. I would also think that the oil is not necessary, as the ground beef is going to cook out fat/grease that the onions and garlic can cook in.

The finished product:
