So you know how I make a meal plan? Well according to this week’s I am supposed to make honey garlic chicken wings. But as I was putting away the milk I bought on Monday I noticed some tortilla wraps. Well unless I could figure out something quick to make with them they would most likely end up in the garbage.
Since one of my goals in general is to avoid food waste I started thinking about what to do with them and came up with Mexican lasagna. A quick google search showed me that I was missing at least one ingredient. Putting my new-found love of saving money to use along with inspiration from various bloggers and people I know, I decided to try substitution or elimination.
Of course I forgot to take a picture until after I had dished out servings to Diva and my sister. Those girls took half the lasagna between them.
The recipe I based my Mexican lasagna on is the Kraft site. Since I never have Velveeta I just left it out. I am not a fan of just browning meat all by its lonesome so in went some onions and garlic with homemade taco seasoning to kick it up a notch. I don’t have onion powder so I subbed in dehydrated onions. 😉 I also added frozen corn to my meat in an attempt to put “veggies” in this meal.
This was my plate. The lettuce was also on the list of things to use up. 😉 Shhhhh, don’t tell my children.
