Taco Lasagna

Ever wondered what a taco would taste like as a layered past dish? It tastes exactly like it sounds – cheesy and delicious!

Ingredients
12 oven-ready lasagna noodles (or you can use regular lasagna noodles if you are up for boiling them)
1 pound lean turkey
1 package taco seasoning
1 egg
1 15oz container ricotta cheese
3 cups shredded cheese (or 4 if you’re feeling it!)
1 24oz jar salsa
Toppings as desired (sliced avocado and tomatoes, sour cream, etc.)

Directions

Brown the meat in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drain juices and add taco seasoning.

Mix together egg and ricotta cheese.

Layer ingredients together in a 9×13 baking pan. Noodles, ricotta mixture, meat, salsa, shredded cheese. Repeat for a total of 3 layers.

Bake covered for 30-40 minutes at 350. Top with desired garnishes, and serve with a side of tortilla chips.

Enjoy!

Red Velvet Cupcakes, variation 1

You really can’t go wrong with red velvet cupcakes. I’ve found that most recipes call for the same ingredients in slightly different quantities, and all of them end up as delicious pieces of heaven covered in cream cheese frosting – yum! This recipe adapted from Sprinkles.

Cupcake Ingredients
1 ½ C flour
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 C buttermilk, shaken
1 ¾ tsp white vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1 oz red food coloring
1 ¼ C (10 Tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
1 ¼ C sugar
2 large eggs

Frosting Ingredients
1x 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
½ C (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/8 tsp salt
3 ½ C powdered sugar
½ tsp vanilla

Cupcake Directions

Sift together the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt)

Combine wet ingredients (buttermilk, vinegar, vanilla, food coloring)

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing until just combined

Add in half the dry ingredients, then the buttermilk mixture, and the remaining dry ingredients. Mix until just blended

Divide the batter into your preferred baking pan, bake at 350 until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean

Frosting Directions

Cream together the butter, cream cheese and salt until light and fluffy

Gradually mix in the powdered sugar

Add the vanilla and mix until just combined

Add milk if needed for desired texture

Slather on in heaping quantities, and enjoy!
