You have several different options for creating a good vegetarian Mexican lasagna, so though this is a good ingredient list do not be afraid to toss in a few of your own special ingredients.

Start by dicing your onions and garlic. Heat two tablespoons of butter in a medium or large heavy skillet, and then cook both the onions and the garlic together until they are soft. Next, add your favorite taco seasonings and diced tomatoes to the mix. Stir and heat well.

In another skillet, begin warming your vegetable crumbs. Set aside.Add the frozen corn and black bean mix to your tomato mixture. Stir all the ingredients together completely. Once your vegetables are well heated you can add in the vegetable crumbles. Layer the vegetarian lasagna “meat” mixture with tortilla’s in a baking dish. You may need to trim the round tortilla’s to better fit a rectangular baking dish, but remember to save the access for later fillings.

All you need is cumin, paprika, and chili powder.

Greek Lasagna Recipes

Learning how to make vegetarian Mexican lasagna is a great idea because this results in such a mouthwatering meal, but what about learning how to make Greek lasagna? Although some people think of moussaka first when they consider famous Greek lasagna-like dishes, there is another famous Greek recipe which is even more similar to lasagna and it is called pastitsio, sometimes spelt pastichio.

Made with tubular pasta, ground meat, tomatoes, onions and olive oil, along with some parmesan, basil and a bay leaf for seasoning, pastitsio also features a Greek white sauce.

How to Make Greek White Sauce

Greek white sauce is made with flour, oil, milk, eggs, nutmeg, and parmesan, so it is not too dissimilar from the white sauce you already know. The pasta, meat, and sauce are layered in a baking dish and then the pastitsio is baked until the topping is golden brown.

If you are looking for an exciting international take on classic lasagna, you might like to try pastitsio. Serve it with a Greek salad (feta cheese, black olives, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and a yogurt dressing perhaps) for a complete meal. Pastitsio is cut into squares and served like lasagna. It looks very similar except for the penne or other tubular pasta used instead of the lasagna sheets.
